A real eye opener
20 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back in the early 70s, a local TV station showed this film on a hot summer afternoon totally uncut (I remember being surprised by hearing the swearing). I was very young (about 10 or 11) and knew very little about the Vietnam War. This film showed me exactly what happened out there but it wasn't too depressing. In fact I was surprised and pleased at seeing how the soldiers held up under pressure with attacks from the enemy. At that point in time I had no idea what war was really like--this movie showed me what it was. Also there was a beautiful sequence when they help a Vietnamese woman give birth. The shot of the cheerful, happy soldier holding up the little healthy baby has never left me. A truly great film. Sadly, this is totally forgotten--I think it's 20 times better than "Platoon" or "Deer Hunter"
