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.

    I bought this long ago from this store and we just keep watching it. This movie has more details about the Vietnam war than any other movie made about it. The actors/actresses were awesome and made the movie worth watching. My whole family watches this more than once.

    I liked this movie. The DVD sound and video was excellent. It had deleted scenes and commentary that I found interesting. Definitely not for young children. If you like Vietnam war movies, I definitely recommend this one.

    A story sometimes difficult for Vietnam era veterans whether having served in combat or not, particularly if friends or family members were wounded or killed in that war. Still, the movie gave what I consider a realistic portrayal of both sides of this conflict, something most often left out of other films. Very enjoyable.
