Trivia

Most of the combat scenes in this film were duplicated from another Universal film of twelve years earlier which was the 1955 biography of Audie Murphy "To Hell and Back." As Universal produced both films it was easy to do this; however, the earlier film was a much better movie. See more »

Accurate portrayal.
19 June 2007 | by (Planet Earth) – See all my reviews

Its been years, maybe decades since I've seen this movie. I've never been in combat, but have talked to those who have. From what I've been told, this movie is a pretty accurate portrayal of soldiers' reactions in combat. This movie was portrayed by a bunch of young actors, which seem to add to the realism.

I had an Army Sgt tell me back in 1967 that there were some people in combat who would freeze one time and not another. This reaction seemed to rotate among different people. But this same Sgt also told me that there were those with whom you could always count on.

But the one thing I did notice was these soldiers were, more or less, working together as a unit.

BUT in the movie, PLATOON, there was a lot of fighting among within the ranks. No real teamwork. Insubordination, sleeping on guard, not trying to break in a new guy.

I was in an outfit like this one when I was in the Army back in 1967. This same outfit I was in was a carbon copy of Platoon. I think the only reason I'm still alive is that I was in training and only blanks were fired. Nobody seemed to give a damn. More of Dr. Spock's dirty work!!!
