Jarhead - (2005)
This was easily the most underrated movie of 2005. I loved this film!
Jake Gyllenhaal and Jamie Foxx were autostanding in this story of frustration in the desert during the first Gulf War. A lot of people complained about the fact that nothing really seems to happen in this film and it think they are missing the point of this story. Nothing is happening! You have an entire army sitting in the desert for endless months and nothing happens... You have men conditioned to kill who have nothing to shoot... Nothing happens! And when things finally start happening... well... You'll have to see for yourself.
