Pretty grim Vietnam action thriller.
28 March 2004 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

A U.S. chopper crew waiting to be air-lifted back to safety from the Viet Cong territory are ordered by their commander to recover secret papers from a drowned ARVN helicopter.The papers turn out to be gold ingot hidden in boxes.The group decides to keep 'their' gold for themselves."Dog Tags" was based on the experiences of its director,Romano Scavolini who was a freelance photographer during the Vietnam War.The film is well-acted and directed and it offers some really grim scenes.The leg amputation scene is quite gory and disgusting.The photography by John McCallum is excellent,but the editing is pretty uneven.It's nice to see Baird Stafford as one of the soldiers-he was really memorable in Scavolini's gory shocker "Nightmare"(1981)as a schizophrenic killer George Tatum."Dog Tags" is pretty obscure and hard to find,but if you get a chance watch it.7 out of 10.
