The war scenes are well-done, but pretty standard, devoid of the emotion that is buried deep within some better war films, a la Saving Private Ryan. The film's best sequences, though, are those on the warfront, as the lives of the families of the fighting soldiers are portrayed with striking depth.

Cant wait to read the book!

I saw this probably 5 or 6 times since it's intial release in '02 and still haven't read the book 'We Were Soldiers Once And Young' written by Lt. Col. Hal Moore and war photographer Joe Galloway although I am meaning too. Havine re-watched again tonight i thought i'd come on here and jot down a review whilst the film is still fresh in my mind. By far one of my fave war films that according to Hal Moore 'Hollywood finally got it right' more then likely do to the fact that Moore was working alongside director Randall Wallace the whole time. Mel Gibson portrays Moore in this intense and truthful vision of the war in Vietnam. Wallace shows us the actual humanity of the soldier and not so much the braveity. I have read reviews where others have disbaraged this fact saying Gibson's Hal Moore...

"We Were Soldiers" by Yojimbo

Hollywood once more goes through the "war is hell" motions and gives Vietnam the Saving Private Ryan treatment. I cannot criticize the skillful representation of the battlefield, but pretty pictures of men being artfully eviscerated by slow motion gunfire does not a war movie make. What marks this film is the quite astonishing lack of subtlety and sophistication in the script and direction by Randall Wallace. Mel Gibson plays the kind of superhuman commanding officer who stands shoulder to shoulder with his men and probably blinds the enemy with the glow of his halo. The first 40 minutes of the film are particularly painful, as all the bootcamp cliches are present, interspersed with apple pie images of family prayer and an embarrassing scene featuring the officer's wives that is about as ...
