Must-See Film
22 November 2004 | by mcorritoSee all my reviews

"Missing Brendan" is one of the most intriguing films dealing with past and current issues regarding the controversial Vietnamese war. It was pure genius the way that many of the unresolved issues regarding the war arose throughout the entire film. This film has an all star cast in which each actor/actress depicts their character perfectly. The setting of the film really makes the viewer feel as if they are actually in Vietnam with the characters. My favorite part of this film would have to be the resolution. The producers and directors of this film did an outstanding job in depicting the fact that although tensions between America and Vietnam have been at relatively high levels in the past, we as human beings are able to put that aside in order to help each other. If you have not done so, I highly suggest going out and purchasing the DVD, and especially watching the added features. Enjoy!!!!
