Well cast but mediocre film
6 November 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Michael Douglas gives a very sympathetic performance as a young pacifist returning home before shipping out to Vietnam. The acting is superb in this small film about a sensitive young man trying to impress a bullying father who quite obviously sees him as a disappointment. He hopes to win his father's love and respect by enlisting in the army, imagining himself to be a great hero, but finds it difficult to bridge the chasm between himself and the old man.

This could have been a good film, but it misses the mark. A banal but not unpleasant time-waster.
