    I totally get where he's coming from. Nothing drives me crazier than seeing a character in a movie light a cigarette, take like two drags, then toss the whole thing on the street. Like MOTHER FUCKER! YOU JUST THREW MONEY ON THE FUCKING GROUND!

    Surprise, movies are not true to life.

    The military runs on MS Office... I am scared now! 0o

    Biggest thing that bothers me about military movies is the goddamn shitty berets. You'd think they'd spend some time forming them before wearing them, especially since production times are so long.

  • Kevin Hill
    Kevin Hill

    so im in the air force right, obviously not a navy SEAL but listen to what he says because its all true. especially the approval part. im redoing a program right now and I need to submit new appointment letters and it really got kicked back Friday because it has the wrong letterhead..... the military is the hardest easy job youll ever have

    Who knew! I guess we're all power point rangers no matter what job or branch!


    ' DUNKIRK' ..... best war film yet made. And yes. The beginning of 'saving private ryan' is incredible. But spielberg did sit down with the veterans and listen. A great move that certainly came across in those harrowing opening scenes.

    Full metal jacket.

    So what happened to Savin private Ryan

  • Kriste Isopahkala
    Kriste Isopahkala

    I'm a gun guy and a military history buff, but I'm not an asshole, so when I see inaccuracies in a movie, I don't ruin it for everyone else. I'm also a gear head, etc., but I still do not ruin the related movies for other people. Andy just seems like a childish asshole.

  • Jim Iverson
    Jim Iverson

    I'd hate to be so anal that an inaccuracy in a fucking MOVIE would cause me that much distress

    I remember having to justify in my mind that that dude with the open bolt in Sicario had an

    i wonder how many beach landings under enemies who had 5 years to dig in?

  • Alex Stewart
    Alex Stewart

    Id like to know this guys opinion of Act of Valor. That was supposed to be the only movie ever filmed by a big time Hollywood production company that had ACTUAL ACTIVE OPERATORS as the stars.

  • Graham

    I'm surprised. Shocked. He was in real action and he can talk about this so casually. I've met a lot of soldiers. They can't talk about it.

  • xxCOKERxxPWNxx

    I mean- open bolt firing system🤷🏼‍♂️

  • Roger Rabbit

    “Platoon” - The M60 is visibly loaded with bottleneck blanks.

  • sherman1ai

    On the flipside, if you wanna watch overdone technical nerdery in regards to combat tactics, watch the stairwell clearing scene in a Hong Kong movie called PTU. Its like, ok, we get, these 5 assholes can clear a stairwell. You don't need to show this whole process to us in real time. That movie didn't have enough glam haha

  • Chris Haugh

    Back when i was in the army i worked in a joint unit with navy guys and airforce guys and ill never forget when we had an issue with one of our aircraft refueling and i had to make a powerpoint to explain to this 2lt how air refueling works for their own asset.

  • therealshizlow

    If this guy is the real deal, how is it that he didn't mention the spoon thing. Show the spoon thing man.

    • therealshizlow

      How to kill someone with a spoon.....;)

    • Maya Maia

      therealshizlow what do you mean? :D

  • Brenden Verlinden
    Brenden Verlinden

    I feel for this man. I work in the Cyber Security field and every time I see a scene in a movie that involves "hacking", I want to throw my tv out the window. Because 99% of the time it's wildly inaccurate.

  • John Van Oort

    This is why I go to the movies by myself.

  • Corry Johnson
    Corry Johnson

    His breakdown of how they plan is fascinating.

  • Corry Johnson
    Corry Johnson

    Drives me crazy to see non-musicians in movies, especially guitarists, in performance scenes.

    • Ios5513

      Yeah it's usually pretty awful... Bradley Cooper did I decent job, but he also practiced guitar for like a year... But you can still tell he isn't playing most scenes


    Well, when I see the movies that involve gambling, thats exactly how I feel, and I remember thinking at a time "the real spies and agents must have fun watching James Bond" now I know I was right...

  • Jose Albarracin
    Jose Albarracin

    Men of honor was pretty accurate

  • saint6m

  • Stutter of the House

    Seems like movies that are based on Navy SEALs always make the training aspect of it seem like it's easy and everyone can do it, which is a lie. There is a reason why less then 10k men have actually made it thru the 6 month training program. The fail rate is well over 80% in each class. You get 300 men trying out, maybe 25-30 of them make it to the end.

    What about the TV show Seal Team? Not every episode, but sertent things in it. Is anything accurate in the show?

  • leetledrummerboy

    Lol this guy needs to chill. It's not as if the rest of the population is sitting there thinking these movies are uber realistic. I play a little guitar but I'm not gonna walk out of the theatre if Joaquin Phoenix places his fingers wrong in walk the line.

    • E K

      leetledrummerboy He’s being hyperbolic man, I don’t think he actually walks out of the theater lol

    • Brady Sahm
      Brady Sahm

      i understand what he means though. Every time i watch a movie about bootcamp or anything military related i cant help but cringe, its all cheesy and over acted. Once youve been through it its hard to watch other people pretending to be there.

  • Mark Walker

    Rob Oneill...who was on the BinLaden raid said he thought the gun battle in Lone Survivor was a good representation of fighting in Afghanistan....(Oneill won a Silver Star for a battle he was in in Afghanistan.....Real Seals trained the actors to maybe Andy is a little bit too critical....Saving Private Ryan...Band of Brothers...what about Act of Valour.....plenty of movies are pretty accurate

    i always laugh when 4 stroke motorbikes get dubbed over with a 2 stroke engine. or when people never say goodbye before hanging up the phone. people asking for 'a beer' when in reality the bartender would be like 'yeah, what kind?'

  • Dagger

    That bothers me too, when a gun has too many bullets and they never have to reload unless it's to create suspense

  • AzNightmare

    *You should have asked him about Dunkirk. It was so boring that it might have actually been a good portrayal of real life. It worked for some people, but not for everyone. Very unique movie though.*

  • Cousin Ryan

    5:20 same with blunts

  • David Curry
    David Curry

    All of those Mark Boal movies (Hurt Locker, ZDT, Triple Frontier) are a load of crap, on an extremely BASIC level. For somebody so interested in making military movies, Boal could at least hire a military advisor that knows what a MOS or UCMJ is

  • gajacome1

    The end statement is 100% correct my unit and myself have spent the last 10 months working on 2 course of actions for a fake section of a battle on N. Korea. It’s crazy what gets kicked back and why

    All movies are dramatized, some countries actually put a statement up in cinemas when they show a movie that's based on a real life story. And they say that even though it's a true story it has been dramatised.

  • AInmon

    I wanna know how he feels about Apocalypse Now

  • SGGhost

    generation kill is a show but it definitely is very accurate in my opinion if any vets wanna tell me how accurate generation kill actually is I would appreciate

  • codybilyeu21

    They're freakin' movies.. no shit.

  • CrustangLX

    Can't stand seeing an actor cycle the action of a gun and eject a round.

    I freaking love how the first question he took the deepest breath ever!! Like godamnit you asked the question

  • cmdrdredd

    Most of the Michael Mann movies have pretty accurate gunplay. Heat, Collateral, even though Miami Vice sucked, the way they moved and handled the weapons wasn't terribly unrealistic.

      Coach Frank Perez that shit drives me nuts. Movie star has weak bullshit swing but hits it a mile

  • Hayden Nelson
    Hayden Nelson

    why watch movies at all though without knowing before hand that its a movie? lol i mean they do absolutely everything in movies for pure entertainment. what fun is a grenade when its just a poof of dust? thats not going to get views and good ratings lol its all about the action and adventure that you don't get in real life. thats what movies are for, its about the journey and you just don't get that when you make a movie based on realism. Andy Stumpf seems like an intolerant asshole and i can't imagine it would ever be any fun to hang around such a negative nancy lol

  • scino0816

    Great Interview. He's spot on & he was a seal. I was Army infantry. I could've added, inspections on gear. Cleaning 11B(buffer) Bullshit formations 3x's a day minimum. Then dumb missions given by suits at the top. Best one I ever did. Painting over graffiti in the middle of sector right outside Sadr city

  • ValentinoE88

  • Big Tom

    Saving Private Ryan, band of Brothers, Pacific and probably Black hawk down got to be the most accurate I would think.

    What about SEAL Team? Not a movie, but addresses quite a few things in this video.
