I'm not seeing the fuss here. The writing is pretty clunky and the characters are just archetypes. The story goes through all the familiarly horrific beats you're used to if you've seen a bunch of Vietnam movies already. There are a bunch of obvious hoo-rah scenes. It certainly moves - for all its length, I finished it in a weekend because I was gripped - but, I mean, action-packed does not a classic make. I thought this was just okay.
