I asked him if the extras were real Marines and he smiled and said that it was a mitake he had made from the beginning. He chose to use the English equivalent of the National Guard under the assumption that they were enough military so that he would not have to start from scratch when filming the scenes. But he said that it backfired on him because they performed drill so much different than United States Marines. He had to un-teach them their ways and re-teach them the way we, United States Marines, do things. He said it was twice as much work than if he would have just taken raw actors and put them through a mini-bootcamp. As it was, he really had to work with these guys and you got a taste of what kind of "work" he does. Suffice it to say they were not happy Brits during the shoot.
