Some things you just never forget .........
21 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Damaged Vietnam War buddies Michael Moriarty and William Devane, hook up with sadistic sergeant, Mitchell Ryan, and proceed to Moriarty's fathers farm. The movie displays a lot of baggage that each soldier is bearing, and Arthur Kennedy has issues with his son, so this is not what I would call a pleasant viewing experience. "My Old Man's Place" is fascinating however as the soldiers interact, change opinions of each other, and eventually collide. This character driven drama is well acted, with scalding dialog. Basically it is the story of a son not living up to his father's expectations, and a war not living up to the soldiers expectations. Recommended. - MERK
