This was a great movie. Both myself and my two buddies (who are also soldiers) found ourselves tearing up more than once throughout the film.

Its no secret that people die in this film. One part at the very end had all three of us wiping our eyes and looking away from each other to try and preserve our manhood. There is a scene in which a CSM (Command Sergeant Major) is calling out roll call. Obviously some names bear no response as they were killed. Once the formation is dismissed and only the camera man and CSM are left, the CSM breaks down crying in front of the makeshift memorials of the dead soldiers. A CSM is very high up in the ranks. They're leaders and to see him break down like that blew my mind. Anyways here's the basic synopsis of the film:

"Armed only with their cameras, Peabody and Emmy Award-Winning conflict Journalist Mike Boettcher, and his son, Carlos, provide unprecedented access into the longest war in U.S. history. Mike and Carlos embedded with U.S. Forces fighting on the front lines in Afghanistan, amidst the constant threat of the Taliban. Their journey, "The Hornet's Nest', unfolds a true story of survival not only for the soldiers but for a father and son who seek to rekindle their relationship under the most harrowing of circumstances."
