Aro Recommended We Were Soldiers


USA 2002, 133 minutes
Dir. Randall Wallace
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Action/Adventure, Drama / War

Topics: Period 1970s.


Aroview: Big-budget, lavish re-enactment of America’s curtain-raiser in the Vietnam War, the fierce battle of la Drang, with an all-star cast up to their ankles in carnage and brutal combat-scenes.

Fuzzily non-political, with hurried glances to the home-front and behind Vietnamese lines, this serves, depending on how you look at it, as a universal tribute to soldiers’ loyalty to their task or to present-day notions of the neo-warrior ethos.
