An average movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should check it out again at some point. Well, even though this movie seems to have a decent reputation, I always had some mixed feelings about the damned thing. First of all, I’m afraid it came too late. Indeed,  apparently, De Palma was trying to make this movie as far back as 1969 and the whole thing would have had mu... read more

" Casualties of War is a 1989 American war drama film directed by Brian De Palma and written by David Rabe, based primarily on an article written by Daniel Lang for The New Yorker in 1969, which was later published as a book. The film stars Michael J. Fox and Sean Penn, and is based on the events of the 1966 incident on Hill 192 during the Vietnam War, in which a Vietnamese woman was kidnapped from her village by a squad of American soldiers, who raped and murdered her. For the film, all name"

"3.7. C More Uusintakatselu. Brian De Palman Vietnam-elokuva ei aina vakuuta hyvän (muttei täydellisen, yhyy) yksilön ja moraalinsa menettäneen joukon puinnissa, mutta jotenkin mystisesti tämä epätasapaino tuo jonkun kiinnostavan ulottuvuuden lisää sodan mielettömyyden kuvaan. Vasen vasara on paikoin aika raskas, mutta toimiva tarina ja näyttelytyö kantavat varsin hyvin, jolloin tosiaan ne objektiivisesti heikot ratkaisut kerronnassa eivät juuri vaivaa. Sota paha. Amerikka paha. Ar"

"Kun rikkaat käyvät sotaa, köyhät kuolevat ja kun sota jyllää, jengi flippaa. Ja sodan kasvatit kantavat sodan arvet hautaansa. Kersantti Tony Meserven (Sean Penn) johdolla vietnamilainen nainen raiskataan ja lopulta ammutaan seulaksi. Max Eriksson (Michael J. Fox) kieltäytyy osallistumasta raakuuksiin ja raiskaukseen. Tästä syystä muu komppania vihaa häntä. Vihan liekki leimahtaa väkevämmäksi, kun Eriksson on valmis todistamaan sotaoikeudenkäynnissä kavereitaan vastaan. Ennio Mo"

"Brian De Palma's tough Vietnam drama has Michael J. Fox as a soldier assigned under bullish Sean Penn, who kidnaps a Vietnamese girl in order to rape her while on patrol. This is possibly DePalma's most straight-forward film, lacking any of his usual cinematic flairs, instead of telling this horrific tale without anything flashy. The performances, especially from Fox and Penn are exceptional. A hard film to watch and one of the underrated Vietnam dramas that came out of the 80's."
