'Luridly appealing to a debased sensibility.'


."..acknowledges the powerful fraternity of soldiers without being
jingoistic about their work, and one that depicts the intensity and
adrenaline of a battlefield without being pornographic about it."

Obviously alluding to "pornography of violence," but the key word
"violence," while it is suggested, does not appear.
