Junger's follow-up to Restrepo once again documents the daily lives of the soldiers stationed in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan, showing them goofing off, engaging in firefights and on patrol (sometimes interacting with the locals). As captivating as the soldiers' stories and opinions are (some of them say they look forward to combat though freely admit they get scared), this can't help but feel like a DVD-Extra from the previous film or even a sort of short film epilogue expanded to feature-length, since a good deal of this was covered in the previous film. Still commendable for brave reporting ... and rest in peace, Mr. Hetherington (who was killed in Libya in 2011).
