Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: An honest, sensitive story from a Vietnamese point of view.

- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Friday, July 26, 2002

Fresh: One of the best films of Swayze's Career....Not to be missed

- Clint Morris, Moviehole, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: Drives for the same kind of bittersweet, conciliatory tone that Three Seasons achieved but loses its way in rhetorical excess and blatant sentimentality.

- Dave Kehr, New York Times, Thursday, July 18, 2002

Audience Reviews

3 stars

Little known Patrick Swayze, Forest Whitaker gem. Takes a very different look at the war and some of the other aspects of the war and the people it left behind.
