Storyline

In 1972 Vietnam, a group of United States Marines are sent in to rescue several POW officers. The Landing Zone (LZ) which should have been "cold" actually turns out to indeed be very "hot" (characterized by violent and forceful activity or movement ; very intense). Soon, after a short fight, only four of the soldiers are left alive. Later, the platoon which they were to meet the next day is entirely wipe out with the exception of one nut-case. The small group then arrives at the conclusion that they are all expendable decoys. Between all of the walking, talking, arguing and assaulting between the four soldiers, there are flashbacks to all of their contrite lives before serving in the Corps.

Really Lame Movie with Blatant Racist Message
24 July 2008 | by (Albany, NY) – See all my reviews

This is a horrible war movie by any standards. The Vietnam set is as realistic as a high school play, as well as the battle scenes. They fly around in commercial choppers at night with running lights on, as if half the NVA would be firing on it before it got 2 miles over enemy lines. The acting is sub par, to be charitably. It is like some off Broadway play more than a movie, and a bad one at that. The flashback scenes are just downright hokum.

It advances a lot of black conspiracy theories, a.k.a. racist lies, like so many more blacks died than whites, which is just not true. Over 80% of the casualties were white troops, so how they cooked up that lie is beyond me. But some people think it's cool to promote lies like that, usually the same ones who deny true things if they don't like how it reflects on their race.

To buttress my claim, look at the whites portrayed in the film: a psycho gung ho Marine NCO who pulls guns on people. a twisted younger guy in their squad that they kill (real Marine spirit there), a cowardly helicopter pilot, etc. All whites are dehumanized stereotypes that could have come out of the fetid mind of average rapper or Nation of Islam clone. The plot is pure dime store conspiracy trash. They send these so called soldiers out to liberate a POW camp, except it's empty. It's empty cause this is a plot by whitey to kill people of color. Compare that to the "Great Raid"!

As you can see, there is absolutely no point to see this movie unless you believe everything Louis Farrakhan says, because this movie was made by people who think just like him.
