Similar to Saving Private Ryan, this WWII movie leaves no stone unturned in the violence department, but tries to deliver a different message that makes more sense: there is no heroism or bravery in war - you either kill, or get killed. The only motivating factor for victory is survival, not bravery. But then the ending climactic battle of red and green laser-like gunfire (?) goes on for too long and the body count of this "5-man army in a tank" goes unimaginably high, edging the movie into boredom. Still, the main message (and Brad Pitt's strong presence) makes this worthwhile.
