One Soldier Just Wanted to be Human,
This review is from: Tigerland [VHS]  (VHS Tape)TigerLand is basically about a platoon of soldiers in the American army training for the Vietnam War. Private Roland Bozz (Colin Farrell)is brash and charismatic whose independance and outright defiance puts him on the wrong side of many of his superiors, as well as other soldiers. During the course of the film, he and Private Wilson (Clifton Collins Jr) form a bitter and intense hatred for each other.
However he also forms a special relationship with Private Paxton (Matthew Davis).
Tigerland is a brutal and intense training ground which is the last stop between the soldiers and the Vietnam War and during his time there, Bozz's leadership and character bring him and his men together - triggering extraordinary consequences.
Tigerland is one of my favourite war dramatisations and it really shows the brutal discipline America inflicts on its soldiers in desperate times. It is extremley moving and courageous, just like Braveheart. What I am basically trying to get at is YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
