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.

"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."

Indeed,  apparently, De Palma was trying to make this movie as far back as 1969 and the whole thing would have had much more impact if it would have been released at least 10 years before. And of course, it didn’t help that it came after so many classics about the Vietnam war such as ‘Platoon’ or ‘Full Metal Jacket’ or even ‘Born on the Fourth of July’ which was released the very same year.  Furthermore, even though it was nice to see Michael J. Fox in something completely different, I really hard” read more
