Jake Gyllenhaal stars in Sam Mendes' eye-catching Gulf War drama based on the memoirs of U.S. marine Anthony Swofford. Gyllehaal play Sworrord himself, a 20-year-old, third generation enlistee sent to fight against Saddam's Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. 'Swoff' and his eager comrades are all ready to go out in a blaze of glory... but it's the boredom that's killing them.
