3.0 out of 5 stars Distressing, 17 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Casualties Of War [DVD] (DVD)
Perhaps Micheal j's finest hour.The ravages of the Vietnam conflict take thier toll on a group of American soldiers as 4 of the 5 take a girl from her village,rape her and kill her.Erriksson(Fox)is the fifth soldier,determined that justice will be done.While thr undeniable Hollywood polish seems at odds with the grueling themes,the picture does succeed in portaying a morally ambiguous take on war.For many the real surprise is Fox's performance managing almost completely to distance himself from his clean cut,family oriented image.A wholly OTT facial-tick blow from Sean Penn as the rapist-leader jars,but mostly the picture is a compelling trip into man's Cimmerian soul.
