Jarhead


A look at the first Gulf war in 1990, through the eyes of a Marine sniper. We follow him through basic training before they fly out to Kuwait, where they have to deal with never-ending boredom before the last 30 minutes, when the action gets real. ''Jarhead'' is the nickname that the Marines use for themselves.

128 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Sex, Violence).
Drama, War.
