  1. This absurdly patriotic film is sickening. Obviously the creators of this film haven’t read much of the bible (the whole part where you are to forgive your enemies and so forth). Mel Gibson’s character is constantly talking about God, however he doesn’t seem to realise that if you kill people for a living you aren’t a good Christian!
    Rating: 1 / 5

  2. Has mr. Gibson got totally grandeur? This film is so bad as it could possibally be! Mel should be nominated to the Razzie award!
    It’s very unpleasant to see him with those other young, welltrained bodies, and you can even see the sucking spirit in his eyes!

  3. Utterly unrealistic glorification of war. I happen to know a few real soldiers who fought on the other side. The war was much more brutal and savage and americans were much less civilised and gallant.

  4. I would have never thought that I’d one day laugh hysterically at a war-genre movie. Then I saw “We Were Soldiers.” With all honesty, this could have passed for a comedy in my mind. “We Were Soldiers” is one of the most ridiculous war movies I’ve seen in recent years, with a story that is embarrasingly hysterical. Mel Gibson did his best to try and save the film, but it ended up sinking faster than the Titanic. The films weakest point was the story of Gibson’s wife, Julie Moore (Madeleine Stowe;) it’s where the film gets the most laughs, for me at least. “We Were Soldiers” is easily one of the worst films of 2002, and will most likely remain on my list of the Worst Films of the Year permenantly. What a horrible movie.

  5. This was by far the worst movie of the year(it’s up there with Goldmember) There was absolutely no heart to it. The carnage did not make up for it. I read the book before the movie and that [disappointed] too. Moore is a conceited man who just got as far as he did by blind luck. No amount of skill or experiance can help you avoid a bullet. In the book he sounds like he is a superheroe or something talking like he’s some kind of great leader of men. Give me a break! He also contradicts himself in the book twice. I’m was in the military also, and when it comes to surviving, luck around shootings counts for alot more than people think. Don’t waste your time with this book or movie, just go back to the RAMBO and BRADDOCK trilogys. There are more movies about Vietnam that are alot better than this one. As far as “getting it right”, of course galloway and moore are going to say that, it’s from their book. Wallace did an okay job and Gibson too, but don’t give them too much credit. “Murdoch, I’m coming to get you!” That’s a Vietnam flick!!
