4.0 out of 5 stars
It is what it is, 24 Dec 2009
I think the 1/5 score is not as true reflection of the movie. I would advise that reading The Tunnels of Cu Chi: A Remarkable Story of War. before wathcing this film doing so would put it in a whole different context. The film is not up there with the classics like Apocalypse Now, Platoon and Hamburger Hill and the reason is this film focuses solely on tunnel warfare. Where the films mentioned above have the freedom to cover all aspects of the war. Tunnel Rats has suspense and mindless violence but that is what the Vietnam War was all about. Good film recommended.
