Synopsis:
Oscar winner Jamie Foxx (Collateral, Ali) and Jake Gyllenhaal (The Day After Tomorrow, Donnie Darko) star in this critically acclaimed portrayal of a group of young "Jarheads" during the explosive days of the Gulf War. From the Academy Award winning director of American beauty, Jarhead is a powerful story, told with painful honesty and irreverence, with spectacular cinematography. JARHEAD follows "Swoff" (Gyllenhaal)) from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, sporting a sniper's rifle through Middle East deserts with no cover from intolerable heat or from Iraqi soldiers.
Swoff and his fellow Marines, who have been trained to kill, find themselves in a brutal situation, fighting a war they don't understand for a cause they don't fully grasp.

Modern day Full Metal Jacket - Jarhead review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
17/09/2006

Change the setting from Vietnam to Iraq and we have Full Metal Jacket in the desert. It's an enjoyable film with some very funny moments, and not all the humour is dark. Gyllanhall gives a fine performance as the rookie in the Marine's elite sniper corps, ably supported by Foxx as his sargeant. Definitely worth a watch.
