Original and Engaging - If you are interested in Vietnam or just enjoy documentaries, you need to see Shooting Grunts.
18 January 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I originally watched this movie as I was doing a report on the Vietnam war for my university. I watched and researched as many Vietnam documentaries as possible and Shooting Grunts was by far the most original and engaging of any of them. I'd recommend Shooting Grunts to anyone who is interested in the Vietnam war, film, photography, cinematography, or documentaries. This unique perspective of the Vietnam war will give you insight you've never seen and won't see anywhere else. The editing of this documentary is tremendous and the music is perfectly integrated with the war footage, making the documentary 100 times more entertaining than the usual war documentary.
