Fantastic!!!
21 March 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie this afternoon (3/21/99) at the Cleveland International Film Festival, and it was an incredible film experience. It documents the real-life experiences of a handfull of real-life POW's shot down over North Vietnam. We find out what it feels like to be a hot-shot fighter pilot. We find out what it's like being a guest in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" prison. We get to feel a small example of what it must have felt like to finally be released it what in some cases was over seven years of internment. Many of them were in tears. So were many movie patrons.

If you can gauge a movie by the emotions it evokes, then it wins. I was beginning to forget how absurd the entire situation was; about how most of us began believing in the war and ended up hating it. A powerful film indeed!
