Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film We Were Soldiers

Vietnam war film that at least respect the 'other side' and not treat the Vietnamese as people without a plan or strategy but as equal soldiers. Mel Gibson bark orders well with blood over his face, but there is not much new that is said about the war or brutality of it and the scenes about the waiting and grieving wives and children back in the U.S. only end up making the film stop in it's tracks.
