• This film rates as one of the worst war films ever, acting terrible script well what can anyone say about it apart from embarrassing, accurate view on the Vietnam war zero. weaponry there were no M16 rifles (which was standard issue), there was however one soldier with a Thompson sub machine gun, another with a pump action shot gun ( possibility used in the war)and someone with an Uzi, The Vietnamese villagers was not wearing traditional dress , there was only one villager who was wearing a typical Vietnamese conical hat,the North Vietnamese soldiers looked more like Cuban soldiers. where was the typical rice fields which are all over Vietnam. there was no research done before filming started and I would like to know where the location for this film was it did not look like it was filmed in the far east.
