Run of the mill war time drama centering around the training and combat experiences of a small town farm boy.
The cast of characters are a block of defaults from every war movie ever created. Only the over dramatized, over the top performance of the hugely over written script really lower this into a cinema play of the worst kind.
The scenes in the nightclub when Vincent Price quotes Shakespeare are just dreadful.
First victim of war is Vincent Price's accent. But the time they are going to war he's lost his Southern drawl! Amazingly, the C.O. in Mash turns up when he's in his 20's and HE SOUNDS THE SAME! It's amazing.
Is it worth watching, well... if there's nothing better on. Otherwise, give it a miss.
