Movie Reviews

OK Documentary
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary was OK at best. Entire session is from a (pre 1969) notion that we were winning all battles with nearly no casualties. Was refreshing thought to hear something about the war with an antiseptic point of view (like the US Govt's back then). Also was very much like the old WWII news reels...I even think they used the same narrator:) Was not what I was expecting, If you are craving a more true to life coverage of the Vietnam war, I would recommend saving up your money and paying the extra for the "...10 thousand day war" series also available here."
Historical Vietnam US Military footage on DVD
Michael Oberhardt | Brisbane, Australia | 10/03/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 3 hour documentary is exceedingly good value for money. Although the picture and sound quality are varied (I'm sure some episodes were taken from magnetic masters), the content was surprisingly refreshing in a Vietnam documentary sense. That is, this documentary seemed to have been coupled together from Military newsreel archives from the actual Vietnam conflict (pre 69, I think), and was deviod of the usual retrospective look at the war. Listening to the voice-overs, the war was already won - by the US. Some fill-in sections (to keep each episode to the 30 minute mark) was in some cases filled with un-narrated segments, but rather than adding sound effects, they had someone on a synthesizer making a pretty corn-ball "score" (for lack of a more accurate term describing the embarassing sounds that accompanied the images in this case). Fortunately, these segments were pretty far between. From a military equipment perspective, I actually learnt a few things from it. For starters, they showed the Marines amphibous APC, one which had a brief shot in Coppola's "Apocalypse Now", which I had previously thought was not hardware used in Vietnam. Definitely a worthy purchase for Vietnam era miliraty buffs."
USA TV fragments

(2 out of 5 stars)

"Should have red previous reviews. It's only fragments of very interestings films. But you will never see the scene in depth. It's almost a 60's American propaganda. Type of movies they used to recruit in colleges or universities. Only a one side view of the war."
J. Foster | Barrie, Ont, Canada | 11/10/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"While the commentary and the music were a little dull, I liked the fact that it was all real footage. It was broken down into different categories and painted a vivid picture of the style of warfare used at the time.."
