I really liked this movie, but it lost one star because the battles scenes were not very good. My guess is they hired some retired "colonel" who was a REMF during Nam, to be a consultant. BTW, most "colonels" and retired higher ups are fake; they get the next rank up on retirement if they haven't f**ked up very badly. That's why when you see a general who's an advisor to politicos, they're generaly idiots, has-beens and stupid, because only losers make the military a career. Sort of like government workers, teachers and such, not the descending side of the bell curve at all.
i lived this movie..I was with the mudsoldiers...worked to get Bill the medal he deserved..was done really well
Such a strong story and it’s true. These are the stories that must be told and so often go untold for decades until someone is willing to buck the system
Big, emotional surprise. Hadn't heard a thing about it, must be under the radar. But, oh what a great movie. Wanted to see it again, but it left our are the next day.
It makes us, the public, realize what our troops went through over in Vietnam and remember the disgusting way they were treated went they returned. A great History lesson for We, the People. One great thing Nixon did, was bring our troops home from a war made by Kennedy and expanded by Johnson. God forgive them!
Great story that needed to be told. This PJ effected many lives and was indeed a hero who needed to be recognized. The fact that it took so long to acknowledge what he did and so many people didn't give up over the many years says a lot. True valor not the Marvel, Bad Boys bs. Audience stood and applauded at the end. Don't see that much anymore.
The most intense and profound movie of the VietNam war I have seen👍Hard to hold back tears watching my old outfit 1st Infantry 1966🇺🇸
Story is great! the first third of the movie is so distracting with swearing and crude comments it devalues the story.
