From a reader who posted this warning about the U.S. military on the Netflix movie reviews:

“Movie was well done, suspenseful, and dramatic. Viewers should be aware that because the movie involved the portrayal of the US military in a positive light, the filming received cooperation from that same military, and was therefore effectively taxpayer subsidized. Propaganda is an important recruiting tool for the US military, and movies are one important venue for its propaganda. The incident portrayed in the movie really did happen, but people should be aware when they are being propagandized.”
