I hope this answers most of your questions.

The last sentence or two sounds like his friend was critical of it?? Maybe just the planning and stuff above Latrell's involvement..dunno.

If the friend was critical of the book and movie can you explain further??

I am just curious not trying to start a cr@p storm. I thought it was unbelievable that anyone made it out of that meat grinder and that Marcus is nothing short of a 100 percent hero.... Just asking the question of what was posted and also NOT trying to put Rapi in a corner either...
