Storyline

It's 4 years since Jack is back from Vietnam, but he still has nightmares. In a bus on his way to California he meets Carol, who just left her fiancée - only 4 days before their wedding, allegedly just for a few days of vacation. Jack happily tells her about his plans to set up a worm farm for fishing baits together with four of his Vietnam ex-comrades. Although he gets on her nerves at the beginning, she starts to care. When one after the other of his friends steps out and Jack looses his optimism, Carol remains as the last support that keeps him from despair.

Movie with a gripping story
6 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie was excellent, at a time when some friends of mine were going into the service. The movie showed compassion, and understanding to a Veteran, I think the plot was good, real determination on the side of Jack, following the dream him and his buddy had. There was a love in the movie that you don't see very often, part way through and to the end. Coming back from a war that was more or less misunderstood, Jack was looked down upon, he only did what he was told and trained to do. For the most part the general public of the time didn't know him or what he stood for, they only saw where he came from, and what he did there. Another movie with the same background was Rambo, only Rambo ended with violence, but there was still mention of a friend in the movie that died, and a dream that couldn't take place. Both movies showed sides of a man, coming back from a place we will never see, eating things we would never eat. I loved the movie Heroes, even after coming back from Nam, Jack still had good morals, he still did what was right. I would love to see the movie come out so we could buy it, either on VHS, or DVD, I definitely would buy it.
