Anyway, rant over! At least see it for the thrill of skulls being popped at 800 yards. Yes son, I live for that pink mist HOOYAH. Another contentious point raised in the film involves a new born baby. Or more importantly, a new born baby who isn't a baby at all.
As you may notice in the above clip, Bradley Cooper's hulking frame appears to be cradling a doll.
