8 times 'Jarhead 2' made you grit your teeth
Hollywood loves to make sequels from semi-successful films if producers think they can make a quick buck. Maybe that's the reason why "Jarhead 2" was made — but who knows.
Released in 2014, the film follows a squad of supply Marines who get attacked by enemy forces and must fight their way to safety. Some other stuff happens along the way and spoiler alert — most of them eventually make it back safely.
There, we just saved you two hours.
This film is one of many that makes Marines grit their teeth and have to look away — that's difficult to pull off.
So check out our list of moments that made us grit our teeth.
1. Priority during a firefight
In the opening scene of the film, the Marines at Patrol Base Cobra are under heavy attack from enemy forces. But this Marine is ordered to finish unloading supplies from a truck rather than firing his weapon to defend the area.

2. The biggest bullseye ever
Corpsmen and medics haven't carried medical bags with the Red Cross stamped on it in decades — just saying. That's a huge a** red cross to add insult to injury.
We wouldn't want to stand next to this fictional Corpsman anywhere in country carrying that. (Source: Universal/ Screenshot)
3. Camp Leatherwhat?
They could have done a better job rendering what Camp Leatherneck looked like a few years ago. That's why we have Google images.

4. Sleeves up and wearing the wrong undershirt
A senior officer would know better than to put on the wrong color undershirt, wear gunny sleeves and sport a cover that looks like a blooming onion. Plus he's wearing a guard duty belt for some reason.

5. At the rifle range without any protective gear
The Range Safety Officer would lose his qualification in a heartbeat if a superior saw this crap.

6. Collar device placement
Oh, come on! Really?

7. Worst secured perimeter ever
If you wanted to attack these fictional Marines, you could just walk right up from behind and they would never f*cking notice.

8. A scope mounted on the carrying handle
Nope. This film takes place in 2013, meaning RCOs were used and mounted in lieu of a carrying handle. No offense, but supply Marines do not rate those types of scopes.
For the love of God, do some research people. (Source: Universal/ Screenshot)
