Watching this movie will make you want to be a member of the Army Special Forces. I joined the Army because of this movie!

Format: DVD
John Wayne like any other American had the right to promote his opinion. Period. ...
Now, the film is as accurate as any other Vietnam film made in that last 30 years because films are created to promote an opinion. (I've known Vietnam Vets who were not dope smoking, gun-totting genocidists.)
As far as action and commitment, the Green Berets succeeds as a solid "war film." No one who cares about good film making can argue that, unless they believe in censorship. The film is panoramic and energetic in cinematic quality. The characters are strong male types (like Vets I've known.) The film chose its side and promoted it. There is one strong element that the film brings home. The US military was better at killing, and it had to be. Most US detachments were generally outnumbered, fighting an opposition armed by numerous totalitarian countries from Europe to Asia. That is a historical fact, which interestingly enough, was introduced into a film over 35 years old.
The Green Berets, again, is a solid war-film and interestingly enough, is less fancifully than Platoon. The Green Berets is worth the time to see.

Format: DVD
If you ever read Gustav Hasford's "The Short-Timers" (which "Full Metal Jacket" was based on) you know how he felt about this movie: "Let's watch the Duke and Mr. Sulu karate-chop Victor Charlie in a Kodicolor fantasy about Vietnam." In other words, he thought it was bunk. So does everyone else on the left, who have bought into the myth that Vietnam was a purely guerilla war and that the human-wave assaults employed by the NVA/VC on Col. Kirby's camp in the film would never have happened in real life. In point of fact almost 90% of the fighting in Vietnam was of the conventional type in the Central Highlands or the valleys ("We Were Soldiers") while only 10% of the troops were employed in the rice paddies you see in movies like "Platoon." Whenever the NVA fought out in the open, a la the Tet Offensive, they were well and truly beaten, but their leadership was ruthless and understood that by trading 5 Vietnamese lives for one American, the U.S. will to fight would eventually break. They knew the American public had only tepid support for Vietnam and would not accept the losses. The result, of course, we all know. Hanoi Jane what she wanted and so did Uncle Ho. Too bad Jane didn't go back in say, 1975 and spend some time in a re-education camp. They could have taken pics of her in a tiger cage, eating bugs and rotting from typhus.
If you are reading this you probably know the story of the movie.
John Wayne's Col. Kirby and his elite Special Forces "A" Team (no, not the one with Hannibal and Face and B.A. Barracus)is sent to Vietnam to establish base camps which offer protection to the local farmers from the murderous Viet Cong (whose crimes against their own people are well documented here).

Format: DVD
Words cannot adequately convey the depths of moral and political depravity to which this film goes in its attempt to re-write the shameful history of our entanglement in Vietnam. Its simplisitic right-wing preaching, cowboy dialog and racist portrayals of Vietnamese characters could almost be regarded as camp if this piece of celluloid trash did not also have a darker purpose--the glorification and promotion of an unjust war in which America had no business being inolved.
If you want the real story of what happened in Vietnam, read "The Winter Soldier Investigation", published in 1971 by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. In it you'll read true accounts, by soldiers who were there, of atrocities committed by American troops in the name of "freedom". They set the record straight. This film deserves to be soundly condemned for its defense of our role in the Vietman War, the likes of which we had better pray will never be repeated.

Format: DVD
Although no expenses were spared in this spaghetti Western posing as a modern war movie, its politics make it hard for remotely intelligent people to stomach. THE GREEN BERETS (which takes many liberties with the superior novel) is Vietnam as it should have been (in the eyes of the pro-war hawks) but in retrospect, it appears to depict some alternate dimension. The conflict is broken down into simple black and white terms. Godly Americans helping their Godly Freedom Loving South Vietnamese defend their freedom against the Evil Atheistic Communist North Vietnamese.
Unfortunately, the anti-war films that followed it also seemed to take place in some alternate dimension. Evil Imperialist Americans deliberately napalm-bombing the Poor Vietnamese Peasants while American Boys got Killed in Large Quantities For Nothing.
Fellow Americans, lets encourage Hollywood to at least once, try and depict the conflict in Indo-China as it really was.

This is the worst war film I have ever viewed. It is flawed in every respect. The acting is shoddy...the special effects are absolutely childlike. The helicopter crashing scene rates as the most amatuerish scene I have ever witnessed on screen. John Wayne is a favourite of mine...I just can't find any redeeming fetures at all. Give this a wide berth.
