Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has anyone else seen this film?

    Tagline: The first and most important rule of gun-running is: never get shot with your own merchandise.

    Staring Nicolas Cage; the acting by all of the cast is effective but understated and bearing in mind the subject matter, it was intelligently written and directed. As the end credits rolled I had all sorts of thoughts bouncing around my head as the film doesn't patronise by attempting to neatly package an uncivil industry. There are moments of very black humour which had me laughing in spite of myself!

    I thoroughly recommend it.
     
  2. I saw it and found it very interesting.

    The point was this is actually happening all round the world.

    It made me think how many of those weapons were now firing at our Troops.

    Top film.
     
  3. i liked the bit when the plane was cannibalised overnight by the locals in 'fast forward' mode, stripped to the bone haha

    ending was a bit predictable,, but its a decent thought provoking movie all the same.
