I've Seen This One
3 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Good movie, Ironic thing was, it was filmed 3 houses down from us when we lived in the Philippines. Father was retired air force. Supposed to be a Vietnam movie, but the entire thing is filmed in the Philippines. If you can find a copy, watch it, You'll enjoy it. Susan St. James and Dennis Christopher both act very well in this movie. First time I saw it I was young enough to not understand most of what I was seeing. However I've seen it since and enjoyed it very much. Its an old movie so it won't be easy to find. I've been looking for a copy again for a while without much luck. If Vietnam movies are your forte then you will enjoy this title if you can get ahold of it.
