Movie Reviews

Most accurate Viet Nam series to date
F. E. Coffing | Indiana | 06/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series is a favorite of my husband's. Recently retired CW4, he spent 6 1/2 years in Viet Nam as a Green Beret. He constantly picks movies on that era apart with critique about dates, uniforms, insignia, equipment, place names etc. Well you get the idea. He has been delighted with the accuracy of the series.
Several of the episodes on the earlier editions had reference to actions he was actually involved in! He paid special attention to those. We both love the series and can't wait for the last one to come out. If you can't believe the opinion of a man who was actually there and saw it, who can you believe?"
Forget the sound.. Tour of Duty is the best war series ever!

"I'm so glad they are going to release this as my tapes of the third season are mostly worn out. We also get more episodes (20) as compared to just 16 in season 2. The boys in Tour Of Duty also steer away from most of the soap opera style episodes and the focus is now more on combat and the soldiers realizations of the futility of the Vietnam war. Some of my favorite episodes of the series were in this season especially when Carl Weathers-from the Rocky movies joins the cast and as a special forces Col. His character and acting are superb and add so much to the series. Lee Majors also joins for a few episodes as an old soldier in his third war.
Whether Tour Of Duty has real music from the 60's or the same old tired tracks we have heard throughout the series is irrelevant. Sure it WOULD be nice to hear those songs, but it seriously doesn't ruin the whole experience. If I want to hear 60's music I can always pop a cd in my stereo and listen. I bought the other two DVD sets to experience the best war series ever, not music.
To me the content of these episodes makes this the second best season. Each soldier's tour comes full circle and for better or worse they all have to deal with the problems of overstress from war, recovery the horrors they have seen, and come to grips with their part in it all whether good or bad. The series could not be complete without the closure that is given to topics that have been nagging the soldiers throughout their tours.
I doubt after watching all 20 of these episodes anyone who has complained about the music will still be complaining because of the gripping content of each episode.

Tour of Duty - 3rd Season DVD

"This series takes me back to when I was in Vietnam. In a way I cannot explain. I think of the guys and what we went through together. It may not be for everybody but it helps me heal."
Soundtrack ? Who Cares !!!!

"I love this Show and I was waiting for this particular Season for a long time now. Soundtrack ? who cares about the cheap muzac, I am just glad they ever came out with this series on DVD at all. I have all the episodes in VHS and the music does help the show feel like it happened during the Viet Nam era, but is not the music that makes the show but the story, characters, actors and the sweet HUEYS flying all over the place. I recomend this DVD and the complete 3 seasons."
