In 2005, the year of the famous British Director Sam Mendes ("American Beauty", "road to perdition") has released the tape "the Marines", where the main role was played by Jake Gyllenhaal ("Brokeback mountain", "Source code"). On the basis of the title, one might think that the film will be battle, but méndez removed, rather, the parable of the war, how soldiers live without the fight, being in another country, expecting that is about to begin their first operation. The film caused a double sense, but still one not a single representative of the film about war of the war itself. No further ADO, in 2014 issued a continuation of the "Marines" where nor what Sam Mendes or about Jake Gyllenhaal and the question was. The second part of "Marines" — this mockbuster, a low-budget movie, which only uses the name of the original, of course, bringing the audience, and it promises commercial is monetary, return.

This time "Jarhead 2" — is no a parable. In again American patriotism with an unshakable faith in the Kingdom of democracy will go with strikes zdravm sense. A small detachment of trained soldiers come in the operation to deliver a woman to the destination. It turns out that this a woman, or rather girl, almost not the expression of the entire Afghan in the world who wants to go democratic (Sercel, Pro-American) by. For her hunt viciously, well and still, minded tribesmen who see Afghanistan exists outside the framework of the capitalist system and going their own way freely developing Islamic state. Americans will valiantly perform their task, to shoot a bunch of rounds, will lose their own, but and kill many opponents. and we are extremely viscous will demonstrate how good amerikantsy as soldiers how they sticks out the desire to fight for right, right, right that they think.

Filmed in mode "shaky camera", it is as the audience, fail to that we have experienced the entire kaleidoscope of emotions, when the gallant Yankees come into the fight with superior forces of the enemy. It is likely that this mode and could to play a trump card for "Marines 2", but for some reason, the picture Alexander Krumov liked to remove the back of the soldier that was running somewhere in someone there shoot, you feel yourself like sitting at him in backpack looking to the awkward position. The only plus in all visual characteristic of the film — this well-chosen natural places where to filming. There's something that seems that really, everything happens in Afghanistan among a mountainous area with a dry wind and gray dust.

But in colours, all to the banality of boring: again picked up only a gray mass, from which it seems that that's it suffocates, even when the "shaky camera" swinging, then background changing then it becomes clear that the film is based on one film, the quality of which leaves much to be desired. Only black spots on a protective form little soldiers destabilisateur the same type of background, but when the spots were a pleasant sight for the eyes? In the sound everything is simple: trying to be realistic, the film-makers brought to limit the sounds of flying bullets, struggling from stones of the earth, but them so much that you receive feeling that set the record, and she one place is jammed and saying also, why there is still a irritation.

the Picture of the category "B" on the soldiers who are fighting a war on their land, but us provide as though they — saviors, and those against them — complete bastards-orthodoxly. The plot with the visual image, auditory effects — all "lame", not mention about the acting, because not seen. Would call a better "Field of fire", because nothing a picture of Sam Mendes second "Marines" is not have.

It is worth noting that the film "Jarhead 2: Field of fire" is not like the previous part. If the first film, the lion's share of time given to combat training, coaching, knocking up the soldiers of the US marine corps, subsequently and poemat how should not had a chance, it here we gave a typical Hollywood Thriller. Here we and shooting and lots of bodies, lots of blood and etc. the film razvorachivaetsya at this time not in Iraq and in Afghanistan.

It is noticeable that the budget the second part does not can compete with the first. About it says selection of actors and shooting, and also staging of the plot.

Without mistakes there is no cost. First of all, the questions cause the girl is a lesbian, not forgotten in the ranks of the marine corps. Have very strange tendencies as for the fairer sex. Constantly dragged from weapons and military equipment, all the time carries with him additional ammunition in the form of 9 stores from the M4 carbine and the like.

When the heroes of the film got in shootout lost of transport, representatives of the command began to think about the rescue operation. One captain said to the major, they say, would be nice to lift the helicopters to those found trapped in trouble Marines. And he says that in the specified area — a sand storm, so nothing happens. In same time, where where were the men, no sand storms do not exist at all!

Criticism is caused by hand to hand combat scenes of Marines with the Taliban. Elite American fighters with the work with spravlyayutsya poorly trained terrorists.

But despite the flaws, the film is quite tolerable. Fans of the fighters can while away the evening watching this film.

Skinhead marine Anthony Swofford will always evoke positive feelings, surfacing in memory by reference to the paintings of Sam Mendes "Jarhead" about around the desert soldiers who are not saw the horrors of war, not killed any one of the Iraqi lament from that they are given to click on trigger the crucial moment, but Pereskiopsis the brain to the topic of the military idiocy, animal instinct, friendship and damn the frailty of life. Mocking and cruel existential pseudopodia with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role deserved got into a list of decent military drama, in contrast the movie don Michael Paul, who shot the wrong sequel to the movie which is the sequel to be not be. If the original was on the memoirs of real Swafford, remaining in utter bewilderment and disappointment from their Eastern vacation, "Jarhead 2: Field of fire" is the film several of the writers who previously worked on doubtful projects out immediately on video. A completely different mood, dynamics, and theme give full rights to this film to be called "Marines 2", even though it in it is about Marines. Probably, in order to get a wider audience, Michael Paul have used, after all, known mengusovska brand, removing the movie on several orders of magnitude weaker.

Like some similar parasitic sequels, not relevant to the original, the film is a little less than all secondary scenario and absemetova, while watching violently forcing her to remember the great military fighters, literally copying the elements of the scene, blatantly imitating and blindly trying to pass for an original. It as for the overall concept of the story is incredibly similar to  the"Tears of the sun", so and individual episodes ripped from the French "special Detachment", and other pictures about the modern middle East and Afghanistan fighting country of Americans, however, for which is not specified. This Nedosekin serious and severe, but trying to smooth out have quite restrained, moderate patriotism and is the marine corps dialog jokes that, according to custom, had the command of the main characters. Impersonating, but in all seriousness, members of the squad at the time of execution of the tasks on the carriage of ammunition, joke the radio, choosing black or white, shaven or unshaven, trying to make their polopoly jokes are funny, and thousands of times already have some relaxing fun indulge in the Marines before bed, dancing in self-made costumes, shaking her ass to niebanalny repachok. References? They are not look. Just a stupid replay.

However, Michael becomes interested in the Floor closer to the middle, where the team can feel the weight loss, and some of the soldiers after the battle will hold facial expression, distorted in stunned disappointment. Brother in the camouflage is not just might have to die. This is not can be. And so every time, even removing the helmet, but connoisseurs remember what did Spielberg when the soldiers removed his helmet. Completely predictable plot, with through which the viewer will learn to see the future, with the work absorbed by the fighting scenes. Wrecked trucks and frantic shooting in a mountain village could not contribute to getting utter ecstasy from what he saw, as the scale of the film is not going to shoot down helicopters. Dictated by the budget. But an adequate rating allow to look at the blood warring parties, delighting the stage with an unexpected shot of grenade launcher from the door opening, a few spectacular moments and heavy fire, monotonous, but charming all fans of shooters. All this thanks to the work of Alexander Krumov working in mostly television movies. Vigorously twisting the zoom and changing the angle, he did here is quite decent picture, not devoid of this characteristic of hysteria.

Emblazoned on the poster known Cole Hauser here is the same the main character as Bruce Willis in"Framed", as present in it only one third of the film, creating a totally unknown, but purposeful character, easy replaying all the rest of the international team of Marines. Even one of the most famous Pandora villains — Stephen lang, again try a military uniform, armor-piercing only played a strict commander, who was sitting in the camp. It is hoped that not will suffer the fate of Glenn Morshower playing one and the same cameo "authorized" with the same phrase "you have to go with me" or"we are ready to launch rockets". Anyway, the movie don Michael Paul would be worth called "Field of fire", having lost even more viewers, because for unnecessary sequel to it's thoughtfulness and something more complex. It just a cheap American Thriller about modern warfare. Someone else's war.
