 Films You Didn’t Know Were Part Of A Trilogy

Certain movies — especially prestigious war movies — don’t seem like they should be part of a trilogy. Nobody would make Platoon Part Three or a sequel to Saving Private Ryan. And you probably wouldn’t expect a franchise to pop up around Jarhead, the 2005 film set during Desert Storm. Directed by Sam Mendes, the original film boasts a pretty incredible cast, featuring some serious actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx, and Chris Cooper. Jarhead is based on a true story and follows a group of frustrated, bored soldiers burning away in the desert sun. As Roger Ebert put it, Jarhead “contains no heroism, little action, no easy laughs,” but despite its anti-war message, this movie somehow inspired a super gung-ho action franchise full of bad writing, badass soldiers, and bloody gun battles.

In other words, parts two and three are the complete opposite of the original. Todas las noticias, análisis y comparativas de los mejores smartwatches del mercado. Todo Smartwatch, smartbands y pulseras de actividad

Jarhead 2: Field of Fire was a direct-to-video sequel released by Universal Home Entertainment in 2014, and it features more shootouts than the first film has characters. Starring some recognizable names like Cole Hauser, Bokeem Woodbine, and Stephen Lang, the sequel follows a completely different group of Marines protecting an Afghani woman who’s basically Malala Yousafzai. The Taliban wants her dead, and our heroes fire a whole lot of bullets getting the girl to safety. 

As for Jarhead 3: The Siege, all we can say is “The horror! The horror!” Yeah, it’s pretty awful. Once again featuring totally different characters, this direct-to-video B-movie borrows its premise from the 2012 Benghazi attack, and it’s pretty much a straight-up pro-war flick, complete with racist one-liners. In other words, the Jarhead series has strayed far afield from the original entry, but evidently, somebody’s watching these movies, so part four might invade your TV screen sometime soon.
