Ben was adamant about that, but at the same time he wanted the explosion to be huge. When you see it hit the ground, it was like it was filled with gasoline!
It was the same thing with Ben's sergeant character, who almost intercepts a hand grenade Now, I was in the Army for three years and no hand grenade would make an explosion like that But it was a big dramatic moment and it looks really cool All the palm trees used in the explosion were moved to the specific location after the crew determined the impact of the lighting and necessary camera angles.

Several faux websites were created for the main characters and some of their prior film roles. A website for Simple Jack , a faux film exhibited within the film, was removed by DreamWorks on August 4, due to protests from disability advocates.
In mid-July , a faux trailer for the mockumentary Rain of Madness was released. The mockumentary was a parody of Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse.

After attending an industry screening in April Michael Cieply from The New York Times stated that the film was " Still, when it's funny, it's really funny.

The faux trailers before the film also received mixed reviews. David Ansen of Newsweek approved of the trailers, writing " Tropic Thunder is the funniest movie of the summer—so funny, in fact, that you start laughing before the film itself has begun.
Downey, Stiller, Black and Cruise were repeatedly singled out for praise by numerous critics, claiming that they "stole the show", were " I just can't imagine any circumstance under which a blackface performance would be acceptable, any more than I can imagine any circumstance under which the use of the N-word would be acceptable.

North Vietnamese soldiers are seen armed with AKM rifles during the opening "Hot LZ" scene, one of which most notably disembowels Sandsuky with his bayonet.
In real life, it would be more accurate for the Vietnamese to use Soviet AKs or Chinese Type 56 rifles, the Chinese copy of the AK. An AKM at this time in history is an anachronism, Hanoi didn't get AKMs from the Soviet Union in any sort of numbers until and it would take at least a year for guns to filter down to the troops in the field.
Even during the fall of Saigon in there are virtually no AKMs seen in wartime photographs of front line NVA units.
