Did You Know?

The actors had no trailers, make-up artists, hairstylists, chairs or any of the typical luxuries.See more »
Factual errors: In the final scene when Paxton comes out to meet the bus, he is wearing the Service Dress Green uniform. The uniform is missing the lapel insignia (brass disk with US) on both sides and the National Defense Service Medal. In addition, if he had successfully completed Infantry AIT, he would have blue disks behind the lapel insignia and there would be crossed rifles on the left disk. There would also be a woven blue cord over the right shoulder.See more »

Paxton:[voice-over] My father said the army makes all men one, but you never know which one. He didn't know Roland Bozz.

Not really a war movie., 15 May 2005
Author: ERasmussen14 from United States

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, but it is nothing new.

Everyone here is grouping it with other war movies, this movie has been miscategorized! Its not a war movie any more than "One flew over the cuckoos nest" is a asylum movie or "Cool Hand Luke" is a prison movie. This is a movie about individuality, nonconformity, self-confidence and the costs of that personality type.

The plot is the same as "One flew over the Cuckoos nest" and "Cool Hand Luke", its in GOOD company, and it holds its own. Its these movies it should be held up against and compared, not "Apocalypse Now" or "Platoon".
