Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): When the new Marines first meet SSGT Sykes, the water tower in the background has a USAF Tactical Air Command or USAF Air Combat Command emblem on it, which new Marines would never see at Camp Pendleton. This scene was filmed at George AFB in Victorville CA.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In the end montage of "Where are they now" we see SSgt Sykes in a sniper alley sending his marines through a hole in a wall, and through the window behind Sykes we can see a couple of crew partially hidden behind a wrecked vehicle, directly over Sykes's left shoulder.
  • The original screenplay contained a more pointed political stance which Sam Mendes stripped out.
  • Filmed in the Imperial Valley in Southern California, which features conditions very similar to Iraq. Marines did use one of the local towns, Brawley, for training purposes due to similarities to Iraq.
