A film that doesn't attempt to turn wrong into right, or right into wrong!
25 February 2008 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I've seen many "Vietnam" films in my life, but none have ever really portrayed a positive message of just how great the American GI can be. That is until now. A friend of mine bought this film from some web site and brought it over. At first I was a little reluctant, telling him, that I really wasn't in the mood to watch another 2 hours of a typical Vietnam vets "messed up and psycho/rapist story." i.e. Full Metal Jacket etc..

Damn am I'm glad I agreed to watch it.

My first impression was "where has this gem been and how come I've never heard of it?" The story is really about the American Ideal. It is not locked into Vietnam era. It reminded me more of a WWII story. Americans are sent into the jungle to get a Russian General who wants to defect to the USA. Veteran actor William Smith plays the general brilliantly. The acts that follow beautifully show how these selfless guys risked their lives for a positive pro-American "Ideal." In today's Hollywood, that is unthinkable with all the anti-American propaganda that is churned out. Even the individual characters in the film portray their roles with realism akin to the geographic regions of the US from which they come.

This is a great, great film done with subtly and insight to the true meaning of right and wrong. Unlike many of its counterparts, it doesn't try to turn wrong into right or right into wrong.

I'm going to buy this film for my own collection!

Highly recommended!
