ONE HELL OF A WAR
19 June 2001 | by jg-1See all my reviews

This movie should not be confused with the excellent Ross Burley contribution 'War's Hell' - a 'Nam masterpiece which compels in much the same manner that brought success to Scorsese, Coppola and Leonne in their attempts to create an awesome epic. The visual performance by stars Nikki Edwards and Karoline Gray as 'love interest' are well balanced by the manic 'Sarge', Christopher Gudgin, or 'gimp'.
