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.

Dead from the neck up
17 January 2002 | by (Rhinelander, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I have seen all the Vietnam flicks, and this was a joke. I'm glad I saw this last, because I probably wouldn't have seen the much better films like Apoc.Now and Platoon. The concept of the story isn't bad, but the REAL story is why there were a much larger portion of African-Americans getting shot at than Caucasians. This was missed in trying to find some kind of connection with these totally unlikable characters. The dialog is stilted, almost cartoonish. Apparently human beings NEVER complete a sentence without an expletive in it. The North Vietnamese soldier(one of the best in world at that time) was portrayed like Native Americans in old westerns, just standing there waiting to be shot. The lighting was bad. You could see the lights(night scenes) in the glasses of the actors. I could go on. Everyone makes a choice on what to see, but my advice is that there's better Vietnam movies to see.
