We Were Soldiers
Lt. Col. Hal Moore is the commander of the First Battalion, Seventh Cavalry. As part of the Pleiku Campaign of late 1965, Moore is assigned to action at Landing Zone X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley, an area known to be overrun by North Vietnamese troops and nicknamed "The Valley of Death." Moore soon finds himself and his men contained to an area about the size of a football field, surrounded by more than 2,000 enemy troops and engaged in the first major battle of the war. Heroism becomes the order of the day as the men refuse to yield, in spite of heavy losses of life.

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”.

A simply outstanding film- Mel Gibson is brilliant as usual, and the fact that this is a historical film, based quite closely on Hal Moore's account of the battle, and that the North Vietnamese aren't portrayed as evil villians, but are simply soldiers, makes this one of the better war movies ever made. I highly recommend it.

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