During the Vietnam War [1959-1975] a special US combat unit is sent out to hunt and kill the Viet Cong soldiers in a man-to-man combat in the endless tunnels underneath the jungle of Vietnam. Suicide squads of a special kind.
A video game developed by Replay Studios was released as a tie-in for the movie. The gameplay involves disarming booby traps, collecting ears from fallen enemies and collecting dog tags from fellow deceased soldiers. According to an interview with Uwe Boll, the game was meant to be released on the Xbox 360, but it ultimately has never had an official retail release, and the only digital distribution store that offers the game is Steam. The story takes place after the movie's events as the player character attempts to find the original crew from the film.
In various scenes we can see soldiers equipped with M16A2 assault rifles. This is an obvious mistake, as M16A2 variant was introduced in the 1980s and not even single one was used during Vietnam War.
The unrated, uncut version runs 96 minutes, four minutes longer than the R-rated USA release, which contains much more extended graphic violence and some extended scenes.
