I bought this movie at a cheap price but it was worth more than most movies you spend much more money on. This is a great dramatization of the court martial of Lt. William Calley in his involvement in the Mai Lai massacre. The cast includes a brief but important performance by Harrison Ford as an emotional witness who breaks down during his testimony. This shows what a confusing and convoluted way that the Vietnam War was fought. The soldiers do not know friend from foe and innocent civilians are killed because of it.

Whether or not you believed the Vietnam War was right or wrong, this drama is a must see. It shows that the war had contradictions in both the command and combat had behaved. 10/10
