A movie that shows the real Vietnam (not Hollywoods version)
According to people who were actually in Vietnam in the early days this is a very accurate portrayal of how it was.

I liked it a lot and reading the majority of other reviews I think most reviewers who seem to have some sort of experience in Vietnam and know what they are talking about found it not only to be an accurate and honest portrayal but also a darn good movie to boot.

War movies are so often full of shabby jingoistic claptrap it is a refreshing change to find one that has a strong dose of realism and also some ironic humourous touches as well as being a history lesson.

Let the Rambo and Chuck Norris brigade look elsewhere but if you like real movies about real people don't miss this one.
