  1. This movie accuarately depicts what boot camp is really like. Except for one thing, the crucible. Due to the release date of this video, it was released and made before the crucible began. However, the crucible which is the last 54 hours of events at boot camp is now part of it. Other than not having the crucible, this is a pretty good movie.

  2. Being that im joining the Corps in a month, I figured that I would absorb as much information via dvd and books as I could. Let me tell you this movie STINKS. About 5 minutes into the film I realized this is just bits and pieces of the History Channel’s special on Parris Island (I forgot the name of the series but its a 3 hour 3 part deal). If you want to save yourself some money just tune to Military or History Channel and see all 3 hours (Ive watched the complete series at least 3 times in the last month on the Military Channel).

  3. This book was very helpful in helping a young man deside if he really wanted to be a Marine are not. Also, it is a good book to read.

  4. I was interested in joining the Marine Corps and I wanted a closer look at the process of boot camp. This video showed a lot of the details of how it’s like and the difficulty of it, but it is at the same time very inspiring.

  5. I thought this was,and is a wonderful video,I inlisted in the marines in 1971 and was in MCRD San Diego for 13weeks served two tours of duty in nam. Went in as a brat,wouldn’t listen to anyone,or anybody,snot nose punk,ganster wanna be. And after getting my a__ chewed out almost daily,i came out a man with pride,a sense of being,respect and honor for myself,learning to work with others,loving my country much more. Had i not made that move,I’d ether be on drugs,in prison,or sons will be joining soon and I know that wherever they may be,they will learn and understand what it really means to be an marine.
