From Amazon.co.uk

Anyone who fought in Vietnam can tell you that the war bore little resemblance to this propagandistic action film starring and codirected by John Wayne. But Green Berets itself is not nearly as bad as its reputation would suggest; critics roasted its gung-ho politics while ignoring its merits as an exciting (if rather conventional and idealistic) war movie. Some notorious mistakes were made--in the final shot, the sun sets in the east!--and it's an awkward attempt to graft WWII heroics onto the Vietnam experience. But as the Duke's attempt to acknowledge the men who were fighting and dying overseas, it's a rousing film in which Wayne commands a regiment on a mission to kidnap a Viet Cong general. David Janssen plays a journalist who learns to understand Wayne's commitment to battling Communism, and Jim Hutton (Timothy's dad) plays an ill-fated soldier who adopts a Vietnamese orphan. --Jeff Shannon

Synopsis

John Wayne leads his special forces troops against the enemy in this first Hollywood treatment of the Vietnam War. It's rugged battle action all the way. David Janssen and Jim Hutton co-star.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The controversy that still hangs over the less than realistic The Green Berets tends to overshadow the fact that it was one of the Duke's biggest box-office hits in its day despite not being particularly good on its own terms even if you're sympathetic to its political agenda. Curiously some of the most strenuous opposition to the film being made in the first place came from the US government and army, who thought Wayne was remarkably ill-informed and found the script simplistic, naïve and not reflecting the kind of war they were really fighting and were worried - not without reason - that it could do more harm than good. It certainly makes its case bluntly but a little more subtly than Sam Fuller's China Gate [Blu-ray] [1957] [US Import], which shares quite a few similarities, and its sins are often more ones of omission than dishonesty: the Vietcong atrocities it showcases were real enough (American atrocities are given the nod with the offscreen torture of a prisoner excused with a variation on "Well he started it"), but its image of a war fought by mostly white, almost entirely middle-aged men supporting an incorruptible democratically elected government is pure Hollywood.

If you can separate the politics from the film, what you get is an expensively staged WW2-style war movie in three acts: back home putting the ladies and gentlemen of the press right about what's really going on in Vietnam, a lengthy section in a besieged outpost that harkens back to the wild west with added punji sticks, and a men on a mission finale straight out of China Gate.

Screen-legend' 'JOHN WAYNE' (Colonel Mike Kirby) leads the way in the first 'Vietnam-War' movie which displays much of the horror this war offered.
Telling the story of a small U.S. force trying to hold a military outpost in Viet-Cong territory against the ''odds''
This is a decent effort which includes some impressive ( for it's time ) battle scenes...........a must for 'JOHN WAYNE' fans.
The picture and Sound Quality is acceptable.

Just to let anyone who has a multi-region dvd player know, the region 1 disc comes with a vintage featurette "the moviemakers"(7mins) and a John Wayne war trailer gallery(19mins).

The Green Berets. John Wayne stars in and co-directs this red-white-and-blue depiction of America's Vietnam effort. Wayne wrote to President Lyndon Johnson to request military assistance for the film - and got more than enough firepower to create and impressive spectacle. Its soldiers fit the tried and true mould of earlier Wayne war classics like Back To Bataan and Sands of Iwo Jima. Their heroics are timeless.
WHAT CAN I SAY?
Probably the only major motion picture to actively support the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam conflict,
They had to be the toughest fighting force on earth - and the men who led them had to be just a little bit tougher!
John Wayne leads an elite team of Green Berets on a search-and-destroy mission to capture a leading NVA general.
Well acted action film
The Green Berets also deserves credit for being one of the only movie during Vietnam depicting Vietnam.?
you have to admire Wayne's courage in going through with this project knowing how unpopular his beliefs were to many people..
you can not fault him one bit for doing what he believed in.
as he is saying to all movie critics "Get off your horse and drink your milk " .

It is an easy mistake to make, but this DVD is recorded on both sides.

Having prematurely ended on side 1, the film magically begins again, if one turns the disc over.

Not the best of films, or the best of subjects, I guess it made a change from the endless cowboy films John Wayne made and gave him something to get his teeth into, men of a certain age will love this.

Even though it is a typical patriotic US war movie, like those made during and right after WW II, the story is quite good(outrageous sometimes)and the action is more than satisfactory. If you are a fan of the Duke, you must have this film.

This film was panned by the critics at the time because of it's pro US involvement in Vietnam propaganda.
However, if you ignore the propoganda, you are left with a very exciting war film.
There is plenty of noisy action, John Wayne plays the same part that he's played in all his war films. There is his usual blend of noisy action, sentiment and corny humour.
John Wayne fans will love it!
