For some reason, 'Alligator' Company seems to be lacking in automatic weapons, by then an essential part of land warfare. There are very few, if any, instances where fully-automatic weapons were fired. See more »
The acting, superb. The story, breathtaking. The action, astonishing. The screen writing, unparalleled.
This movie left a deep impression on me. I recommend watching it if you haven't, you'll find yourself going through a roller coaster of emotions, clinching to your chair/couch without being able to leave.
The story is not for the weak-hearted as you see war in it's most true form, the emotions from both sides as the fighting comes to a close. The relationship between enemies, comrades, friends. In the end, making men cry, young & old.
(Blue-ray is recommended if you want to truly see the most subtle touches, I could not view it any other way)
