a good opportunity wasted .....,
This review is from: Tunnel Rats [DVD] (DVD)
i was hoping that this movie would live up to its promise as advertised ,it failed miserably , DO NOT BELIEVE THE BUMF on the cover of this dvd , which actually states that it is up there with platoon , apocalypse now etc , it is not good enough to wipe the boots of those movies . This movie could and should have been a testament to the men of both sides who fought in and around places such as cu chi , known for the extensive tunnel complexes built there by the vietcong , and the terrible warfare which raged in and around these tunnel complexes , it fails terribly and was for me such a poor storyline .Please dont do what i do and waste your money , if you really want to see a good vietnam war movie then spend your money on APOCALYPSE NOW , HAMBURGER HILL , or the oliver stone trilogy of vietnam movies like the classic full on vietnam war movie PLATOON and the two more story/drama related vietnam movies BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY and the great HEAVEN SENT , all these movies are good quality viewing on the subject ,or even the christian bale movie RESCUE DAWN is well worth a watch .... such a good idea wasted ....

I think you would enjoy 'The Tunnels of Cu Chi' a great story of the tunnel rats and their foes, the denizens of those tunnels. I cannot but marvel at the courage required to hunt, fight, and die in spaces sometimes not much bigger, but a hell of a lot nastier, than the average car boot.
