Storyline

Set in Vietnam in April 1968 - three months after the tide-turning Tet Offensive and one month after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. - Point Man is the story of a U.S. Army fire team fractured by racial tensions, moral crises, and the crushing pressures of combat in a war nobody wants to fight. Andre "Casper" Allen, a rough-edged ideologue, finds his radical politics put him at odds with the squad's machine gunner, Silas Meeks. When their search-and-destroy mission in the Mekong Delta goes terribly wrong, both men find themselves pitted against each other and their recalcitrant platoon commander, Lieutenant Sutter. Point men die like flies in the bush, and as loyalties dissolve every step forward comes with a price.

A Quality Film
8 February 2019 | by la_filmcriticSee all my reviews

Other than the obvious production limitations, this story about Vietnam was very compelling along with exceptional acting from the main cast, if I might add, enhanced what this movie might not have been. These essentials will always capture audiences and should be acknowledged with cheers. Congratulations to all involved.
