Movie Reviews

A MUST have for the parent of child considering the Marines.
Cynthia A. Denny | Muncie, IN United States | 01/19/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My 18 year old daughter saw this documentary on TV, and immediately wanted to become a Marine. She has extensive experience as a musician--and successfully auditioned for the Marine band--but even the bandies in the Marines must complete boot camp and combat training.

This series helped to prepare her for boot camp, but after she actually completed boot camp, she realized that some of the segments in the series appear 'dated.' That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

But, this documentary was filmed prior to and during the events surrounding September 11th. The Marine recruits in this series enlisted during a 'non-wartime' America, and graduated boot camp with the prospect of war looming. All of our lives, and of course, military life is VERY different NOW, so naturally, much of the series will feel 'dated.'

But, that aside, I decided to buy this series for my daughter so she can now show friends and family 'what it was like' to experience Marine boot camp. She simply expounds 'around' the parts that are a little different now with Marine boot camp, but otherwise it's a fairly accurate account of recruit life at Parris Island."

"My youngest son is at Marine boot camp now. After he left I wanted to see anything that I thought could help me to connect with him . This DVD is great. It was filmed at Parris Island,SC-where my son is- it gave us a little explanation of some of the training he is getting. I recommend it for all families with son's or daughters going to boot camp"
Excellent Video

"When my son went to boot camp I wanted to know as much as possible about what he would be experiencing. This video gave a realistic view of what happens and the various emotions experienced by the recruits. I highly recommend this video."
