Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, Chris Cooper, and Jamie Foxx.
Director: Sam Mendes.
Rating: R (Pervassive language, some violent images, and strong sexual content.)
Plot: Jarhead tells the story of Anthony Swofford, a Marine Scout Sniper who served in the First Gulf War as he journey’s from Boot Camp to combat duty with 2/7 Marines. His journey is one of cynicism and sardonic humor as he tries to survive in the extreme heat of the Iraqi desert.
Notes: Jarhead is based of the book of the same name by Anthony Swofford. Jami Foxx turns in his best performance yet (topping even Ray.)
My Rating: Highly recommended, especially for war film buffs. Four and a Half Goons out of Five.
