A breathtaking journey through the jungles of Vietnam., 5 Nov 2001
A Tour De Force, this film follows a soldier through his journey of body and mind, as he strugles to do his duty and emotionaly justify its end. This picture is at times disterbing and yet gives an excelent and gripping story. It makes you truely feel for the men as they fight their way through the Vietnam jungle. This has been achieved through a dramatic and moving script which gives a unique view of the war in Vietnam. The direction is exquisit, leaving you emotionaly and physicly drained. A powerful story and script grip and keep your atention throughout the film. This film is a landmark from one of the great directors. Ther is no higher recommendation I can give this film.
