Movie Review in Six Lines: The Pentagon Wars

Watch this film.

Watch this film.

After years and years of references and allusions, I finally sat down and watched “The Pentagon Wars,” HBO’s 1990s movie about the (mis)development of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, starring Frasier Crane and Westley. It is on Amazon Prime and can be found perhaps less legitimately on YouTube. Here is my brief review.

Top Three Things It Got Wrong:

3.) Getting off the Metro at Rosslyn to go to the Pentagon? Hope you’re wearing good walking shoes!

2.) Saluting in the Pentagon? Your arm would fall off.

1.) A lieutenant colonel in the Pentagon having his own office? FICTION!

Top Three Things It Got Right:

3.) Ruminant Procurement.

2.) “No one goes to Fresno for vacation.”

1.) The entire plot.

That is all.
