JARHEAD-3-600This movie couldn’t have come at a better time.

Without revealing all the details of the movie, let me just share that the movie highlights the “apathy and assumptions” that many in the political and civilian world share about radical Muslims.

“Jarhead 3: The Siege” is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
