We Were Soldiers DVD movie in direct link download

The other way in which the film differs from all other Vietnam movies is that it makes no attempt to address the political aspects of the war. It's no agenda & in lieu focuses on the soldiers, never questioning why they are there. The purpose of this approach, according to the book's authors, was to differentiate the soldiers from the war. This was presumably completed in order to elevate their deeds above the perceived futility of Vietnam. While it may have achieved that, the film's wholesale carnage only reinforces the pointlessness of war.


The true events depicted in They Were Soldiers make it a different Vietnam movie from such fictional accounts as Apocalypse Now. Based on the book 'We Were Soldiers Five times . . . & Young' by Lt Col Harold G. Moore & Joseph L. Galloway about the first major battle in the Ia Drang Valley in 1965, the film is a grisly depiction of the bloody engagement in which 400 American troops, under the leadership of Moore, took on 2000 North Vietnamese.

The brutally graphic opening scenes of Saving Private Ryan set a new benchmark in war films, six that They Were Soldiers has raised to yet greater heights of goriness. The close-up battle scenes are not for the squeamish, the images of napalm victims, but for all the effectiveness of Dean Semler's cinematography, in the finish They Were Soldiers is repetitious & wearying.

Mel Gibson is the hard & compassionate Moore, but even with his convincing portrayal, it is hard to believe he is playing a real person & not another of his archetypal brave roles. Director Randall Wallace was also responsible for the screenplay adaptation of the book. With past writing credits including Braveheart & Pearl Harbor, they has an ear for sappy dialogue, a talent that is evidenced here with lines like, "I'm glad I could die for my country" & "Tell my wife I am liking her". Whenever reality meets Hollywood, there's inevitably some concessions. It would be nice to think that Hal Moore had the type of blissful marriage & idyllic relatives life portrayed here, but authenticity is questioned when Madeline Stowe, who plays Moore's wife, exhibits the radical lip augmentation army housewives only dreamed of in 1965.

As the leader of the First Battalion of the Seventh U.S. Cavalry, Moore finds himself in the position five times commanded by Custer, the irony of which is not lost on him as they prepares to lead his men towards possible annihilation. In its desire to remain politically impartial, & to emphasise the bravery & fear faced by all soldiers in war, They Were Soldiers also offers a view from the North Vietnamese's point of view. But it is the beleaguered Americans led by Moore who are the focus.
