An Excellent Film. Rent it, then buy it to watch again.
28 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film is truly an excellent work of art. It's realism is unparalleled. Not only does it paint a vivid picture of the Vietnam War, but it also brings the Puerto Rico of the 60s to life. The scenes that take place in Puerto Rico truly make you experience what it must have been like to live there in those times (for those of us too young to remember). The plot is excellent, and the surprize ending will make you want to watch it again.
