Storyline

USMC captain Ramsey is part of a group of US veterans and war victim's son Brad Jordan, invited in the post-Col War age by the Vietnam government to revisit their battle grounds now international relations are friendly. Initially he refuses to face his unit's darkest, most traumatic memory, but after an affair with a guide accepts. The violent past is slowly reconstructed trough site-stimulated flash-backs and finds a way to catch up and spark another drama. Written by KGF Vissers

Story of several soldiers looking for the truth.
5 July 2004 | by (Utah, USA) – See all my reviews

To start off, I have to say that the European name, "Going Back" really suited this movie better than "Under Heavy Fire." I'm not much of a war movie fan, but as I'm trying to see more of Casper's stuff I took a chance.

As this is a story about the soldiers, and not the War, it was much easier for me to enjoy it. It takes place in the present day, and only shows the war when being remembered, or as footage taken on the scene. It's about a US troop during the Vietnam War who experienced a tragedy by friendly fire, and they blamed their captain (Casper). In the present day a reporter / historian wanted to help the remaining troop relive this tragedy, by revisiting Vietnam and reenacting the event to help them figure out what really happened, thus "Going Back."

Most of the present day scenes felt genuine, and the War memory scenes were used strictly to clarify or enhance emotion and not just to show the War. There was an especially touching present day scene where a Vietnamese woman Captain Ramsey went to visit sings him a BEAUTIFUL song to thank, "A soldier who has lost his way."

Certainly worth my time to see.
