A great film, spoiled by uninformed critics and prejudiced public.
17 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are many rumours and untruths spread by those who wish to hide the truth about that happened between POWs in Vietnam. It is likely that Bobbt Garwood was a scapegoat, to try to discredit his stories of dishonourable actions by American POWs. This is supported by independent information sites (try http://www.pownetwork.org/bios/g/g047.htm for further details). This is made all the more the case when one considers that he was the only person so charged. I think that this is a well-executed film and probably more truthful than other films of the genre. The people commenting on here probably condemned other classic films such as Platoon, Full Metal Jacket and Hamburger Hill. Just because the White House or Pentagon says it is true, does not make it so.
