As of now, my two favorite gulf war films are Three Kings and Iron Man, both of which are glorious fiction and have no pretense as to mirroring real life in this, or any directly adjacent, universe... The Lord of the Rings was a better war movie than most of the shit out there.
The rest strike me as trite, unimaginative, profit mongering or worse, political reactionism/radicalism wrapped in what is supposed to be entertainment or documentary. For instance, The Hurt Locker had some interesting story ideas, but the bullshit writer/director/producer whatever had their head so far up their ass trying to change everyone's mind that they forgot they were writing/directing/producing about events in living memory. As such, what was portrayed as only slight dramatic license was instead glorious (and only partially entertaining) fiction.
So, since it has come up, Green Zone can suck my ass.
Have you seen Syriana? I suppose to be fair it's not a gulf war film per se.
Yeah, not my style of film. It wasn't bad, but not an area of interest and certainly not something that would draw me in without such. I got it for a buck from redbox back in the day and didn't feel ripped off, so that's a step in the right direction I guess
Another example of a non-war gulf film is The Kingdom which wasn't fantastic, but didn't make me want to hurl. I still think Jennifer Garner looks like a man
