Love this movie. Love watching it every time they play it on cable. The story bubbles, the dialogue sparkles, and the drama is tense and engaging.
That said, wasn't this movie just a tad bit anti-military? And the "bad guys" in the movie are religious, sexist, use homophobic slurs, and talk a lot about codes and honor, almost as if the writers were grouping ALL these traits together as "bad".
The innocent soldiers also talk about code and honor--to their own detriment. They come off looking stupid (the little one) or stubborn (the taller one--whose performance I appreciate more and more every time i see it).
And the good guy Kaffee has a father who helped end segregation in schools. How charming. The politics of the writer (the incredible Aaron Sorkin) is so obvious, it's a little annoying.
