I had high hopes for this movie, and although it kept me entertained, it wasnt as good as I hoped.
The story revolves around a group of soldiers, nicknamed the "Tunnel Rats".
Their job is to enter the vast network of tunnels dug by the Vietcong and clear them out.
Due to the subject of the film, much is filmed as though underground and therefore very dark. This often annoys me on films, and this is no exception. The dark scenes often lack enough tension to pull them off, although there a few moments that draw you back in.
This film isnt one for the weak stomached. Not as gory as some war films, but still has some moments that will turn you green. As mentioned, the research in this film must have been last on the list. The uniforms arent right, the weapons handling leaves some to be desired and the general feel of the film is a bit lazy.
I wont give the ending away, but just to say I dont recall seeing a war film with an ending like this one. Lets just say there is no chance of a sequel!
To summerise. A decent enough watch, but I wouldnt rush out to watch again, plot is very basic, acting is ok but no stand out characters.
