Movie Summary:
Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this military drama based on the 2003 memoir by Anthony Swofford. Like his father and grandfather, Tony "Swoff" Swofford (Gyllenhaal) enlists in the Marines. He receives training, and when in 1990 Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait, Swoff's unit goes to Saudi Arabia, where he endures more training. In 1991 he is sent as part of a sniper unit to the combat zone in Kuwait, but he never gets a shot off. Other actors in the cast include Peter Sarsgaard, Jamie Foxx, Lucas Black and Chris Cooper.
