Good war movie even in this modern days. Definitely in those times the movie had an impact, S.McQueen being Godlike. Watching this, for me the feeling was genuine like when i was a child and the TCM stepped in at nite right after the all day long cartoons. Broken memories but the feeling have stuck with me and is triggered every time i watch clasic war movies. Decent story, short runtime. 0300 still awake. 6.5/10
A devastating, bleak depiction of humanity, of actions & the difficulty in determining the moral ramifications of such actions. Though daytime is powerfully rendered, HELL IS FOR HEROES is bathed in a profound darkness punctuated by the piercing, sparkling light of war. Space, vision, life itself: all are abstracted. To act is to always render one's self open to despair. All that is left is a hushed, desolate fire.
