Gunner Palace (Army Movie)


[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: My Brother)

GUNNER PALACE reveals the complex realities of the situation in Iraq not seen on the nightly news. Told first-hand by our troops, 'Gunner Palace' presents a thought provoking portrait of a dangerous and chaotic war that is personal, highly emotional, sometimes disturbing, surprisingly amusing ... and thoroughly fascinating.

The film comes out March fourth and looks more like a documentary about the life of soldiers in Iraq. Gunner Palace looks like an interesting movie, although they are petitioning the MPAA for the rating to change from "R" to PG-13 (I doubt that is going to happen though if their is strong language in the film). You can view the trailer here.

The film is based on the lives of soldiers who live in one of Uday Hussein palace's (Saddam's playboy son) and how they interact with the Iraqi civilians, terrorists and culture of the region. Here is some background about the creators of the film, Michael Tucker:
Filmmaker Michael Tucker, who lived with 2/3 Field Artillery, a.k.a. "The Gunners" for two months, captures the lives and humanity of these soldiers whose barracks are the bombed-out pleasure palace of Uday Hussein (nicknamed Gunner Palace), situated in the heart of the most volatile section of Baghdad.


With total access to all operations and activities, Tucker's insider footage provides a rare look at the day-to-day lives of these soldiers on the ground -- whether swimming in Uday's pool and playing golf on his putting green or executing raids on suspected terrorists, enduring roadside bombs, mortar attacks, RPGs and snipers.

Looks like I am going to add this to the list of movies I am going to see over the next couple of months (War of the Worlds) is another one I plan on viewing). Thanks Bro! Selah!
