One of the very few "Vietnam war" movies to come out of Hollywood that did not go overboard. Captured combat and the home life of soldiers families. Very well done, Oscar material.

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. “Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box”.

One of the best war movies ever. Although the napalm scene always gets to you...
