The person who called this the worst ever obviously never saw "From Dusk Till Dawn".Although I was just a kid when the war in Vietnam was taking place,from what I've read and what older guys I know who WERE there have told me,I'd guess that "Spartans" is about as realistic,if not more so,than any of the other Nam pictures.Plus,it is an exciting,well-made movie with a good cast.Burt Lancaster at his worst?I hardly think so!
