In the bar/brothel scene at the start of the movie a soldier is wearing two different ranks. He has a specialist (E-4) insignia on one sleeve of his uniform and sergeant (E-5) stripes on the other sleeve. See more »
All DVD versions of the film are missing a brief 35 second scene where a soldier replies to a question asked by Captain Morris. The scene was in the cinema version and is probably missing due to print damage. See more »
David Warbeck kicks ass in 'Nam: what more could you want?
I had the privelige to see this awesome movie on a huge screen in 1997, it was shown at a festival as a tribute to the late David Warbeck.
The opening sequence is truly stunning, a slow-burning scene in a brothel ends in huge explosions and sees Warbeck as an action hero in a white singlet years before Bruce Willis.
John Steiner once again shows his prowess as his squad is picked-off, leaving only Warbeck and the larger-breasted of the Farrow species (Tisa), to escape tiger-cages and discover the identity of a traitorous broadcaster.
Don't miss the final shot of Warbeck against the war-torn sunset, left to his fate in the jungle. It's a real kick in the guts, with the same power of seeing Martin Sheen rising from a swamp.
The one problem the movie really has is that the identity of the mysterious traitor is quite ridiculous, but not enough to grind things to a halt.
All in all, one to put at the top of your "must-get" list, right above beer, pizza and peanuts.
