    If I had to pick a least favourite film genre, War Film would have a very high chance of coming first place.

    But, Verhoeven just so brilliantly understands genre, and in turn, creates a hyperbolic war drama, full of unapologetic cheese, but never with jarring effect.

    I think the only reason I haven't given it 5 is because of my natural disinterest with war dramas.

    The "Want To Know More?" cutaways are lovely little lightly satirical respites in between scenes and are never once unwelcome exposition to the story.
