It's a good movie that manages to get some verisimilitude.

Much better than symbolic shit like Platoon or Heart of Darkness Vietnam edition.

Might watch it later.

I hate it when movie directors think groups doing cadence in the background of all military movies adds "realism." I've never seen or heard groups marching around in cadence in any fire base or any base (outside of boot camp or schools).

Do you think these are good copies that will play in US players?

Quite a few years ago I bought a supposedly "Region 0" copy off ebay, it didn't work at all.
Had different artwork though and mine came out of Hong Kong, IIRC. It wasn't worth the trouble to get a refund.

I ended up buying a cheap region free DVD player and a region 2 copy off of Amazon.

Good but not perfect. Definitely worth the watch.

I can honestly say I had forgotten about this flick until I saw this thread. It was pretty good as I recall. I need to watch it again, it's probably been 20 years or more since I've seen it.

Good war movie................................

Worst titled movie of all time . . .

Really horrible attempt at a Vietnam movie. Not realistic, and the storyline is pure fiction.

Crap for the masses.
