Review: Generation Kill
HBO mini-series Generation Kill consists of seven parts on the invasion of Iraq, without making any compromise and managing to be respectful to both parties involved. Generation Kill follows the adventures of a group of soldiers manifestly without shame or respect, the members of the elite Recon battalion that makes way for the actual invasion. However tough and remorseless the Recon team may be the series follows their actions with impeccable dignity. The odyssey of these men, from their tents in a Kuwait camp to the occupied Baghdad is depicted with brutal honesty and without using cinematography to make things more watchable. The closest thing to a "soundtrack" is the distorted sounds of the radio station and of course the sound of guns firing. Generation Kill is based on Evan Wright’s novel with the same title. Wright himself spent time with the Recon battalion in an effort to better understand their experience. Though it was tough for Wright to get army’s approval for his, he managed to convince them and soon his courage earned him their respect. His life was often in danger, but he survived and wrote the book on six of the soldiers he documented.
The mini series shows the reality of war in general and the war in Iraq in particular, a new type of war that was extremely fast paced and brutal in which combatants barley got to fire their weapons because it was too difficult to make enemies from comrades or civilians. Generation Kill is a series that manages to present the reality and horror of war to viewers. It portrays both the success of the team in its various missions but also the hard life soldiers have while in combat. The series is extremely brutal at times, the producers aiming to make this a realistic depiction of the war and less a romanticized story of American soldiers.
Pick Generation Kill if you are looking to get a close look at the horrors of war, the war in Iraq especially, as well as into the lives of the soldiers that are the first to arrive in a conflict zone.
