Unbelievable. Parker spends two hours telling us how absent-minded Birdy is. The use of flashbacks wasn't worth at all. When the screenplay doesn't know where to go next, tries to sell us how terrible Vietnam was! It rejects the value of their own story. Didn't connect with Cage nor Modoni. Terrible ending, didn't fit La Bamba with two guys trying to escape..in a story which basically was from a man desiring to Fly!
