For some people war movies are just type of action and adventure movies, but for others they can recall the painful memories. The war brings the worst sides of human nature, but at the same time can show the best sides of people. Although sometimes the war movies can be awfully brutal, you have to remember that the war is not an adventure, it causes damages to people bodies and minds.
77 years ago on 27 May 1940 Dunkirk evacuation took place. After the blitzkrieg tactics from German armoured divisions put British and French forces out of balance they were unable to defend their positions and British Expeditionary Forces were called back to retreat to French port of Dunkirk, where ships will withdraw them back to England.
Sniper Elite 4 Deluxe Edition
Running time: 100 minutes
In 1971 new group of recruits start the infantry training in Tigerland - or officially Fort Polk training camp in Louisiana, used to prepare US Army units before they are sent to Vietnam. Among the new recuits is Private Roland Bozz, who is draftee and is strictly against the war and army. He does not plan to be quite about it and from day one it is obvious the officers will have a tough time shaping him into soldier. What is more he helps others to make use of the army regulations to avoid active service. Private Wilson, who is constantly tries to humiliate Bozz and other soldiers, gets in a fight with Bozz. During the fight Wilson puts a gun to Bozz’s head and pulls the trigger, but the gun misfires. Officer gives Bozz a choice - either Wilson is court-martialed or the officer will take care of this incident himself, suggesting this would be better fo everyone. But Bozz made up his mind - he wants Wilson out of the army.
Film depicts the training of an infantry unit that is expected to be sent to Vietnam soon. The relations between Bozz and rest of his platoon as well as officers is the main plot of the movie. We see how different were the attitudes among the recruits, even among the recrutees - some of them saw the army service as their patriotic duty to the country, others as waste of human lifes or at least their own life. But overall it is rather mediocre movie with not very involving plot and stock characters. And the main point of the Tigerland story was... Hmm, I’ll get back to you on that one when I figure it out.
