|Maximum Action, Maximum Drama! - We Were Soldiers is a powerful & bloody war movie based on a true story that moves at a heart-wrenching & ear-shattering pace! On Sunday November 14, 1965 at 10:48am, Lt. Col. Hal Moore (a magnificent performance by Academy Award winner Mel Gibson) and his regiment of 400 men touch down at Landing Zone X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley, a place in Vietnam known as "The Valley of Death". They find themselves surrounded by roughly 2000 North Vietnamese soldiers and the ensuing battle becomes one of the most savage in US history. Heroism, bravery, sacrifice, the butchery of battle, We Were Soldiers is a gruelling exploration of war with all its horrors, that can rightly take its place alongside war classics Apocalypse Now, Saving Private Ryan & Platoon.|

I like a good war picture and at the time I think Mel Gibson was in his prime as an actor. generally American patriotism leaves me cold but this is a tremendous picture with strong performances from all the leading characters. The battle scenes are very good and despite the fact that it is relatively easy to pick the ending, you are held by the action. The final fight scenes are TOO INCREDULOUS but that is what I expect from American patriotism !!!! A very enjoyable movie albeit one "based on a true story" which usually destroys credibility. 4 & 1/2 stars.
