The book was full of lies invented by Swafford, the movie is based on his lies. It's a Hollywood film, not based in reality. It is entertaining, but not much more. It is complete fiction.

As for it being a humiliation to US Marines, nah. There are tons of Hollywood movies out there about the military, Delta Force with Chuck Norris didn't humiliate Army Special Forces, this doesn't do anything to real Marines.

Not from anyone knowledgeable. Swafford wasn't even a sniper.

Even though the story might be a little fictional, I still think the movie was pretty good.

And you know this from personal experience? Sorry, but it's Hollywood tripe. Entertaining, but not much realistic about the whole film. Take it for what it is, a movie.. and don't try to turn it into some documentary on the lives of Marines during the first Gulf War, because it was nothing like that.
