Product Description

Harrowing drama set in the final days of the Vietnam war, based on the award-winning novel by Robert Stone. Nick Nolte stars as Ray Hicks, a jaded Vietnam veteran who, having come to the end of his stint, agrees to smuggle two kilos of heroin into the United States for equally disillusioned journalist John Converse (Michael Moriarty). When Hicks arrives at the journalist's home to collect his payment, events spiral out of control - and a catalogue of errors leads to Ray and Converse's bewildered wife, Marge (Tuesday Weld), going on the run from the henchmen of drugs baron Antheil (Anthony Zerbe).

4.0 out of 5 stars The Nick Nolte film not the werewolf film 18 Oct 2012
By SD99
Format:DVD
Amazon need to sort out the product description and the reviews that relate to the recent horror film. The Nick Nolte film (which I am attempting to review, hope the review doesn't also end up in the werewolf movie reviews) is about a disgruntled ex-marine who agrees to ferry some heroin back from Vietnam in the 60s for a friend. It all goes wrong of course and he ends up on the run with the guy's wife. But there arent too many cliches in this well scripted-movie, and Nolte and Tuesday Weld are very watchable. An under-rated movie, the kind you might stumble on by accident and be glad you watched it.

5.0 out of 5 stars bleak post-'Nam classic.... 5 Jun 2005
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:DVD
Made in 1978, 'Dog Soldiers' is an adaptation of Robert Stone's classic post-'Nam novel of the same name - though it is a film sometimes known under another title, 'Who'll Stop the Rain?'.
Nick Nolte, escaping the potential typecasting of 'Rich Man, Poor Man' & generic-silliness like 'The Deep', made a consious move towards grittier material and bleaker roles. 'Dog Soldiers' would put Nolte on the course that lead to challenging material like 'Under Fire',Scorsese's episode of 'New York Stories','Afterglow' & 'Mother Night.' There is excellent support here in the form of Tuesday Weld (Once Upon a Time in America, Looking for Mr.Goodbar), Michael Moriarty & Anthony Zerbe.
The film itself is a faithful adaptation of Stone's novel, which captures the bleak post-'Nam/Nixon zeitgeist - centring on a Vietnam Vet (Nolte) attempting to smuggle heroin back into the U.S. and descending into a situation that reminds me of Neil Young's bleak drug-murder song 'Tired Eyes' (from 'Tonight's the Night'). As such it's one of the downer films of the late 70s and anthithesis to the shiny-happy likes of such blockbusters as 'Stars Wars' & 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind.' One to file next to 'Blue Collar','Out of the Blue', 'Straight Time','Rolling Thunder' & 'New York, New York.' No happy endings...
'Dog Soldiers' is a welcome issue on DVD, a film that seems overlooked- as is the work of Robert Stone come to think of it! Finally, it should be noted that as one of the initial works of U.S. cinema that addressed the stigma of Vietnam, alongside 'Hearts & Minds'(1974),'Rolling Thunder'(1977),'The Deer Hunter' (1979) & 'Coming Home' (1978). A bleak cult classic then-

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Nam films ever. 9 July 2007
By Jayelle
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Aw Wow I was looking for this on amazon DVD for years! All I could find was another movie by the same name.

I've had this on VHS for over 20 years and am extremely happy it's now on DVD.

This is a brilliant movie - I won't disclose the plot - and all of the actors are in terrific form.

Don't wait - click 'Buy'

3.0 out of 5 stars Where did it go! 6 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to write a review of the film, there are far better than me for that on Amazon, and I'm not going to moan about the film, I liked it thats why I bought it.
I will however moan about the picture quality. I watched this film on TV years ago and the picture quality was far better
than whats on the DVD, so where did it go? It's a pretty poor picture which is a shame because the film is a good story
and I do like Nolte. Sorry, not normally one to moan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, very good film 18 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the best Vietnam fallout films with a touchng end of de-Flower power.
Perhaps Nolte's finest performance.
Moriaty intepretes his loss of moral compass brilliantly.
