Jarhead 2: Field Of Fire



Swofford obtains unauthorized alcohol and organizes an impromptu Christmas party, arranging for Fergus to cover his watch so he can celebrate. Fergus accidentally sets fire to a tent while cooking some sausages and ignites a crate of flares, waking the whole camp and enraging Staff Sergeant Sykes, who demotes Swofford from lance corporal to private and puts him on "shit-burning" detail. The punishments, combined with the heat, the boredom, and Swofford's suspicions of his girlfriend's infidelity, give Swofford a mental breakdown, to the point where he threatens Fergus with a rifle, then orders Fergus to shoot him instead.




Jarhead 2: Field of Fire



Near the end of the war, Swofford and Troy are finally given a sniping mission. Lieutenant Colonel Kazinski, their battalion commander, orders them to kill at least one of two high-ranking Iraqi Republican Guard officers at a nearby airfield. At the last second before Swofford takes the shot, Major Lincoln interrupts them to call in an air strike. Troy desperately pleads to make a kill, but is denied and overruled as the airplanes destroy the Iraqi airfield, much to his and Swofford's disappointment. The war ends without Swofford ever firing his rifle. During a monologue, Swofford realizes that all of his training and effort to achieve the elite status as a marine sniper is meaningless in modern warfare.


Nathaniel Fick, another author who is a Marine, gave the film a mixed review (and panned the book on which it is based) in Slate. He wrote, "Jarhead also presents wild scenes that probably could happen in combat units, but strips them of the context that might explain how they're more than sheer lunacy".[13] James Meek, who reported from the battlefields of Iraq, wrote in The Guardian: "The key to a film about war is how it ends, and if the young man at the film's centre is lifted out of the battlefield uninjured and sane, if his family and home life before and after aren't prominent in the picture, the movie is diminished as a film which says something about war and becomes a simpler story of growing up, of jeopardy overcome".[14]


Parents need to know that Jarhead 2: Field of Fire is a 2014 war movie in which a Marine supply contingent stationed in Afghanistan must help a Navy SEAL escort a dissident Afghan out of the country. This is a sequel in name only, having nothing to do with the 2005 original Jarhead movie. Unsurprisingly, there's war violence throughout the movie, including a scene in which an American soldier's leg is blown off by enemy fire in the middle of a pitched battle -- blood, screaming, death. In a flashback scene, a young girl is shot in the head at point-blank range by a Taliban fighter. Fighting with firearms of all types, explosions, stabbings, punches, and kicks. Pretty much every profanity in the book is used, including "f--k" on a regular basis, and "motherf---er" a few times. Soldiers use a derogatory term to describe the Afghan people, and a soldier in the Afghan army in particular who has joined the unit, but the soldiers who used the term the most grow to respect, admire, and appreciate the Afghan soldier. In order to pass the time, the Marines joke about how they shave their pubic hair, joking in particular with the only female in the contingent. Brief nonsexual nudity: male buttocks. Some beer and alcohol drinking in a party situation on the base.


Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merrimette is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to resupply a remote outpost on the edge of Taliban-controlled territory. While driving through the hostile Helmand province, a Navy SEAL flags down their convoy and enlists the unit on an operation of international importance: they must help an Afghan woman famous for her defiance of the Taliban escape the country. Without tanks or air support, Merrimette and his team will need all the courage and firepower they can muster to fight their way across the war-torn country and shepherd the woman to safety.

Cpl. Merrimette is now really under fire. He must somehow rescue Anoosh and make it back to Camp Leatherneck, so Anoosh can be flown to New York, and so Major Gavins can award him that additional Sgt. stripe. 041b061a72
