This documentary chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, Restrepo, named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. It was considered one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military. This is an entirely experiential film: the cameras never leave the valley; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats.

Sebastian Junger's sequel to "Restrepo" is entitled "Korengal".

Ought to help neutralize some of the mythology being generated to glorify US troops in these presidential wars being fought for nothing at all. These guys volunteered to be there and were all foaming at the mouth to get a chance to kill someone in a firefight. No God and country idealism. They just want to kill someone. One of them even says what he'll miss most going back to the states is shooting at people.

Great documentary about an outpost in remote area of Afghanistan.
If you want to know about tactical decisions and firefight situations, this video will show you.

This is a good documentary on an American outpost in Afghanistan. I thought the camera work was too zoomed in during the interviews but overall done very well. Very sad to see how young these guys are and how the rest of their lives are going to be ruined from this. I wish politicians would watch this movie before they send soldiers on useless missions.

As close to the real thing, as you can get. Absolutely the finest movie on Afghanistan available.

I grew up with John Wayne movies, apocalpse now,deer hunter, platoon and the hurt locker. they all seem like artist interpretations now. this is not a political film but as a veteran I feel there must be a better way of using our finest and bravest people.I recommend this film.

Violence: Although you don't see people being shot, or even blood, theres one scene where a sargent lays dead. Plus you 'hear' lots of violence, gun shots, etc & the veterans talking about killing the 'enemy'.
