one of the better Vietnam War movies
on 15 October 2017
One of the better Vietnam war movies... It tells
the story of the assault on Hill 937 at the A Shau
Valley in 1969.
It starts with the arrival of a bunch of FNGs, that
is F***ing New Guys, who are green to Nam... The
jargon is about right, and it does show some of the
darker side of the war, like the brothels and friendly
fire. The battle scene are quite good, but we hardly
see the POV of the NVA or VC, they seem to be an
invisible enemy. Maybe that was the point, but there
were two sides to this battle...
Overall, still a good film.
