If there is one thing that we as humans did not evolve in, than this is our way of settling our differences. There are many war movies depicting individual battles, conflicts, suffering and traumatic experiences for soldiers and civilians alike and among many watched, this are the war movies that may also teach as thing or two.
More movies that, in our opinion, deserve your attention…
- 2008 The Hurt Locker
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow. Written by Mark Boal.
There is an emotional aspect of being a solider, under stress, shoot at and in danger day in, day out. All of you who have experienced combat, tense moments in a war, death and pain shared with fellow soldiers, that mistrust and disagreements among those same fellow comrades you relay on, than you may find part of yourself in this movie.
Only disappointment are some comments around the web, even by those who claim to be soldiers or were soldiers in different countries, and are giving this movie thumb down because of one scene featuring the broken wheel on a wagon. Common!
