Good... though it could have been even better
14 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I thought that this was not a bad little movie. Actually, it tries to be "big" in scope, with its Vietnam flashbacks that clearly show a lot of time and money was spent in making them feel authentic. The battle scenes and the non-combat scenes in these flashbacks are well done. But to tell the truth, I actually found the present-day sequences in the hotel room with the two men a lot more compelling than those flashback sequences. The acting and drama in the hotel room sequences are very well done, and I was really wanting to find out what secrets were wanting to be revealed. The cast is first-rate, especially Michael Ironside. So give this movie a chance, and be patient whenever the movie flashes back to the Vietnam war - you'll be rewarded in the end.
