Storyline

As the Gulf War raged, the government forced its fighting men and women to be vaccinated with an experimental and unapproved vaccine against anthrax. In the aftermath of that fateful decision, large numbers of veterans now suffer from strange and debilating symptoms, a condition known as Gulf War Syndrome (GWF). Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, our Government and the Armed Forces refuses to acknowledge that the vaccine is the cause. Written by Anonymous

Disappointing, but still a must-see.
18 June 2004 | by (Westminster, CA, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A film that sounded much better than it turned out to be. This film is about many of the military folks who fought in the Gulf war of the early '90s, and how each of them was given a direct order to take an anthrax vaccine. Now, these people are all messed up physically, and some even mentally. It's a bizarre, scary and even sad story that happens to be true, and of course was never even reported on the televised, or print media, owned by Wall Street. But how this amateur filmmaker was able to talk actor Michael Douglas into reading copy in some studio closet for several minutes is beyond me. This film's main problem is that it isn't the least bit imaginative or clever in its execution. Sure, the subject is fascinating, even frightening. But this guy (Miller) makes it a snore! Better luck next time.
