lol, We Were Soldiers is shit, my friend
I think that’s not much of a serious “critique” in that sense but I’d also go as far as to call the film “not good” (for reasons I analysed in the research paper I wrote for my high school graduation). But what the film does good, is create a gorgously-photographed war film, and show an episode of the Vietnam war previously not much centered on. the overly patriotic bullshit and sadistic violence aside, this movie is well entertaining and can serve (along with the documentaries and commentaries on the DVD) as a good starting point for research on the Vietnam War (and how that War is portrayed in american film in general).
WWSoldiers is a very modern approach to the matter and it at least “tries” to be unbiased… which it ends up being not…
