About five years after this picture, actor Gene Hackman
starred in another Vietnam War movie called Bat*21
(1988). That movie represented the opposite of this film. In Bat*21
(1988), Hackman is trapped behind enemy lines in the Vietnam War and it is he who needs to be rescued. In Uncommon Valor
(1983), Hackman is responsible for recruiting a band of brothers to bring home a number of their buddy soldiers (including his son) who were still missing in action from the Vietnam War that they had fought in. See more
