Storyline

Bill, Martha and their little child Hal are spending a quiet winter Sunday in their cosy house when they get an unexpected visit from Mike Nickerson and Tony Rodriguez. Mike and Tony are old acquaintances of Bill; a few years back, in Vietnam, they were in the same platoon. They also became opposed parties in a court martial - for a reason that Bill never explained to Martha. What happened in Vietnam, and what is the reason for the presence of Mike and Tony ?

Casualties of war the 2 the post-quel.
2 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After 53 minutes, I don't know if its going to turn into a PTSD "FUN and GAMES" or OPEN SEASON. All know is Sgt. Tony Meserve and PFC Antonio Diaz have done their time and now drop by the house of CPL Errikson to as CPT. HILL told him "Get a Lil' PAY-BACK!" Meserve is still the psycho soldier has found a home In the ARMY he always was. Diaz however has emerged from Jail, as the confidant, slick, clotheshorse. Meanwhile Errikson's has been hiding up in the hills, living off of his wife and her rich dad. His passives ways have earned him any praise from his neighbors and the Patriarch of his family. Meanwhile Diaz with his fancy dress shoe, and crew-cut sporting Meserve are out hunting with Erriksons father in law. On the way back their throwing around the Ole' Pigskin. Big daddy lets the boys know that he's done a little something something to the Germans back in WWII. But remember this is a slow-paced film.
