R | | Drama, War
A young soldier in Vietnam faces a moral crisis when confronted with the horrors of war and the duality of man.
Jeff Bridges was considered for Sergeant Elias.
Oh, man. Is that what I think it is?
Sergeant: All right, you cheese-dicks, welcome to the Nam. Follow me!
When Elias kills the VC down in the tunnel complex he uses a 1911A1 pistol which requires the hammer to be cocked before it will fire. After he shoots and kills the VC, the hammer should still be in the cocked position yet the hammer is shown as being down. There would be no reason an experienced combat soldier like Elias would lower the hammer when he may have to fire again.
