In 1965, 400 American troops faced an ambush by 2,000 enemy troops in the Ia Drang Valley (also known as the Valley of Death), in one of the most gruesome fights of the Vietnam War. WE WERE SOLDIERS is a detailed recreation of this true story--of the strategies, obstacles, and human cost faced by the troops that participated. The story focuses on the lieutenant colonel that led the attack, Hal Moore (Mel Gibson), and a civilian reporter who accompanied them, Joseph Galloway (Barry Pepper), as well as a number of other soldiers who were involved.

This is an unusual Vietnam film in that it also shows the North Vietnamese perspective on the battle; their leader Lieutenant General Nguyen Huu An (Don Duong) is depicted as a brave soldier and smart commander. And in addition to the many gory battlefield sequences--which seem to have been influenced by SAVING PRIVATE RYAN--we also see how the carnage of war affects those left behind, the soldiers' wives and children. Ultimately this is a moving anti-war film, which, by sticking close to the true stories of real soldiers, very effectively brings home the overwhelming horror of war.

This is very good on Blu-ray, got this when it was at 'The Hut' for about £4.80 a good year ago............

Don't buy this film if you're English (or more especially Cornish) as Mel Gibson hates the English so much that he had the part of Rick Rescorla (The hero of the 9/11 bombings) written out of the film :x

What is English? :shock:Most of its owned by the rest of the world anyway, so somewhat hypercritical that they hate us !!:whistling:
Hot film though

Rick Rescorla is in the film hes a platoon leader

I think this film is pretty naff even tho its a true story its basically just the yanks getting massacred from start to finish, no story to it at all. If you want to learn about what happened on that hillside it takes much more than 2 hours of video you must read the horrific book of the same name
