JARHEAD (Theatrical Release USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Jarhead serves adult action via a fair to middling war film about the United States military in Desert Storm. Good casting calls include Jake Gyllenhaal, Stellen Skarsgaard, Jamie Foxx, Lucas Black Chris Cooper, and Dennis Haysbert. It is worth a watch.

Storyline

A U.S. Marine is chosen to be trained as a sniper.
