Advantages: Great movie, Not your typical War movie, The main role in brilliant, It has a brilliant plot, Cheap.
Disadvantages: I cannot think of a single disadvantage.
This is a film about the USMC (United States Marine Corps) it follows the trials and experiences that Anthony Swofford also know as Swoff, has to go through. It follows him on his journey from the safe environment of boot camp to the harsh realities of War. The movies title comes from the typical Marines "High and Tight" haircut.
Admittedly some people may not appreciate the reasoning behind the film being "slow to start", this is the case because it not only shows the adrenaline pumping action but also the tedious duty while waiting for action.
This film has become really cheap recently, yet it is still one of my favorites. If you are into the "War and Action" genre, then you are guaranteed to love this movie! Although if you're looking for a movie packed full of action, then I most likely wouldn't recommend this to you. Just a side note for parents, the movie is not graphic at all, but it does contain a lot of swearing, so bare that in mind.
Summary: I would definatly recommend this to any fan of the Action or War genre.
