Awesome series. I had never heard of it and to be honest it be blew me away. The rawness. The humanity amongst the destruction. The sheer stupidity of the American military apparatus. I can't understand the comments by some about how the series glorified war. It did the total opposite. I thought the final scene where they walk away from the video record of the destruction of the campaign captured that perfectly.
Glorification of violence and thwart racism.
Truly a brilliant series.
i could not stop watching.
Didnt take my eyes off the movie. Well made.
Hated it, could not even complete the series, the most boring thing I have ever seen
Based on the account of a Rolling Stone journalist who was embedded with the marines as they rolled into Iraq. Written/produced by Ed Burns and David Simon (The Wire - best series ever), Generation Kill is totally gripping television. The writing and acting is first rate. True Blood fans will enjoy seeing Alexander Skarsgard without the goth makeup. Wire fans may enjoy seeing Ziggy again...
Brilliant! A realistic portayal of war, gritty and emotional. Kept me glued to the screen. If you liked Band Of Bothers, do not miss this.
pulls you inside the Marines recon unit almost from the opening moments, and just gets better with each episode. manages to be both entertaining and disturbing at the same time. David Simon
Interesting look at the first days of the invasion
