This movie was praised to be hilarious and a parody of all of these Vietnam war movies, so i got a grip on the original DVD and watched it. The hopes were pushed really high by the texts in the advertisements, but as i am familiar with amateur-movie productions i did not take these lines that serious, because most of them are only added to push the marketing. As this is a complete amateur production, i even won't say its a b-movie. Simply because it does not reach that level.
The first thing i noticed was that there were scenes taken from other movies and put into this one (the helicopter ones), which you can easily notice on the massive picture quality difference. Second thing i noticed was that the audio and video were about .2 to .3 seconds asynchronous, which i count as a major minus. The rifle shots and explosions are all digitally put in after wards, but they look nice for an amateur movie. I think, they did that because you can't simply detonate explosives in a German forest without permission. The forest looked pretty good and also the soldiers equipment was well done, so thats a plus.
The characters in the movie are shallow and fit the usual stereotypes, not even mentioning the acting, which was, in my opinion... brutal to look at. Don't expect anything from that part. Sometimes its embarrassing how desperately they try to fulfill that stereotypes.
Together with the fact that i did not have to laugh for a single time during the whole movie (there was not even a grin on my face), because it is simply not funny at all, made me think, how to get back the hour i wasted with this movie.
So i recommend it only for hardcore trash fans. Everyone else, stay away.
