Classic Ghost Story
23 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are introduced to a group of soldiers on board a transport, ready to attack a Normandy-like beachhead. We get to know them. They banter, play cards, fight, argue, and play practical jokes. One of them is a sad, wimpy character who is the victim of their bullying. He is an outcast, almost like a little boy. They do things like asking him if he knows how to play 52 Pick Up. They don't respect him. The first half of the episode introduces us to a group of young men who may die the next day. Obviously, our guy is going to play prominently in the remainder of the episode. The impressive part of this offering is some really impressive battle scenes. There are some good actors, including Charlie Sheen who looks pretty much the same as he does now (28 years ago). You've seen this plot before but enjoy it.
