I just returned home after watching this movie at the cinemas. Man it really opens your eyes as to what people went through back in those days. I felt horrible at times, some of the scenes were horrific.
Mel Gibson i though put in a great effort as lead actor.
A few days ago here in Australia on Anzac day, some of the war veterans who fought in Vietnam also mentioned that this movie is right on the mark when it comes to realism.
I came away from the movie with an empty feeling but still satisfied that i did go and watch it. It re enforced the fact that we take a lot for granted, when so many people had no option but to fight and die for their country.
Anyone else see this movie? What did you think of it?
