Very Good Documentary
18 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent TV documentary I luckily found on ebay one day. This movie is extremely rare so if you find it anywhere it won't be very cheap. some people are currently selling it on amazon, so if you want it you may find it there. I have 3 good reasons to watch this film. 1. Great acting 3. Good Quality 3. is very realistic If you like documentaries about the army you will like this. If you don't, I wouldn't suggest it. It also has an awkward plot, which made me think a little bit about getting it. Then I realized Brad Dourif was in it! He portrayed Sergeant Matlovich very well. If you get it I hope you enjoy it!
