When it comes to war movies this one is one of the best, its based on the true events of the vietnam war and the fight for what the soliders named hamburger hill ( because it chews them up like hamburgers). The battle for hamburger hill became legendary for its little stragetic importance and the lives that were lost to gain control of it. only to then abanden it. which shows the utter pointlessness of war and some of the decisions made in conflict. it was mean and long bloody battle that served little purpous. Its a a very well made and well acted movie with plenty of blood guts and also has a fine soundtrack. a underated movie for sure..

Hamburger Hill is the story of a group of soldiers ordered to take a "strategically important hill" in Vietnam. Overshadowed by its contemporaries Platoon and Full Metal Jacket, this is a very creditable account of the Vietnam war viewed day by day by soldiers fighting a pointless and bloody battle for a grid reference. It's essentially an analogy of the whole war, as the characters are dehumanized, traumatized and butchered by a largely unseen enemy for reasons it's difficult to fathom. The structure of the film is basically a series of brutally realistic and mud-soaked battle sequences punctuated by the soldiers bonding and discussing the various politics involved in their being there. This does come across as a little dry and emotionally uninvolving by its very nature as there is littl...
