Unfortunatly, as most films are made in America by Americans, for Americans. The armed forces involved will most probaly be American in most cases. So any marines we encounter on film are USMC.

Yeah I *text deleted* watch that,
I read about it and I'm sure a film on it would be pretty good.

they should make one about Cpl. Thomas Peck Hunter,

i always find british films to be better and more realistic, so this would be a brilliant film.....

perhaps james mcevoy to play hunter, i think they look quite alike

Ye unfortunately most war films are American. Anyone actually ever seen the film "Marine" with John Cena, it's ok, but not really to do with Marines in general.

Yes, couldn't agree more, Saving Private Ryan is a classic :D.

classic :D.

*text deleted* that film has got to be one of the sh*test films i have ever saw in my entire life. the start is just unbelievably cheesy, he kicks open a door with about 7 guys shooting AK47's at him, and he just had his gun at his hip spraying away and screaming then goes and kicks everyones ass, but one at a time, when in reality he would be dead and they would have all jumped him at once even if he did survive standing in a doorway with 7 AKs firing at him. some *text deleted* wanabe random sh*t there *text deleted*

then he gets kicked out for disobeying an order even though he saved some important guy and none of his team were killed. just a bit of discipline would have be good.

can tell that jon cena wrote it with the intention of making himself seem all gamlorous and amazing (or just a cheesy wanabe idiot that only has some big biceps going for him and no brains.)

The Cockleshell Heroes is a classic, but there's also another film from the 80's called, The Highest Honour. Its about a Australian Commando group fighting against the Japanese. There is a Royal Marine with them and they are captured. Like the Cockleshell Heroes, its a true film. I don't want to spoil the story for you, but the highest honour in the eyes of the japs is death by beheading.

A great film.


Cheers

Yeah its a pretty good film, also Black hawk Down is good. If you liked Saving Private Ryan, try Enemy At The Gates, awesome.

Platoon was always a good film. As was: A Cross of Iron.

Apocolypse Now - A classic.
