By Kurt Messick HALL OF FAME on 30 Dec. 2005
Format: DVD
This is a film with a difference -- many people come to it with preconceived notions of how a military-themed film should be, and are somewhat disappointed. This is not an action film, and while it fits the overall genre of being a protest film about Vietnam, it is not unambiguously so. It is an anti-war film, to be sure, but is not an anti-military or even anti-American film. It has an emphasis on duty and honour that transcends minor considerations of the particular patriotism for particular nations -- the themes as old as the Roman centurion's honour for fallen compatriots run through to the Old Guard at Arlington National Cemetary.
The plot winds its way around the Old Guard, the honour guard at Arlington National Cemetary, charged with the performance of a hallowed trust, one of the few in a secular nation such as the United States -- that of overseeing the gravesites of the honoured dead who died after service to the nation, including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The primary senior characters are Platoon Sergeant Hazard (James Caan) and Sergeant Major Nelson (James Earl Jones), two crusty veterans overseeing operations; both served in Korea and Vietnam with distinction, and are now sitting on the sidelines of the expanding war in Vietnam in a place where the body count is very apparent. Into this mix comes the young and idealistic Specialist Willow (D.B. Sweeney in one of his earliest roles), an Army brat whose father is (of course) a friend of Hazard and Nelson.
Willow has an unrequited love (played by Mary Stuart Masterson) in the daughter of a colonel, who seems to think that the son of a sergeant is beneath his daughter, even as Willow has ambition toward becoming an officer.

Very good cynical view of how death can be taken as a routine job with the attitude of common soldiers of the ceremonial guards phrase 'Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust, let's bury this guy and get back on the bus'. Might seem irreverent but with so many burials due to war casualties it could be the way of blocking the sheer horror of the conflict which still haunts Americans to this day.

Love this movie James Caan imperious as usual. follows a young niave soldier clashing with the salty old sgt. great support from james Earl Jones, Anjelica Houston et al. One of my all times faves and directed by Mr Coppolla himself could not get much better.
