No!Not Knickleback! Turn it offffffffff!

An old war movie,hate ’em.I had to look up to see what war this was half way through because i didn’t have a clue.The film starts witha bunch of kids in school.Their teacher gives them a big power speech on how noble it is to be in the war and the class cheers on and all sign up.You even hear one say “no more lessons woo hoo” ,if i had the choice between school and war i’d probably be back in school not paying attention to History class again.This paints war is a realistic light.Lots of gunfire,lots of hiding in trenches and a shit load of explosions.The bombing of the grave yard is particularly crazy.Don’t expect a happy ending.
