Movie Reviews

Excellent series with compelling stories
Ironmike | California | 06/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This excellent series was filmed on the same set as the CBS 'Tour Of Duty' series back in 1988-89. Each half hour show is packed with characters that are believable, based on actual events and done with a certain flair that makes this a DVD to grab as it well researched and powerfully acted. Check it out."
Powerfull, hard hitting, sad, tragic & heart wrenching drama
olhipe | ROANOKE, VA USA | 08/31/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Very well made HBO mini stories based on real occurances in Vietnam and at home. Brought tears to my eyes even after all these years! Whether you were there or not a must see for anyone who was alive back then and also it can relate to what our troops are going thru today. A MUST SEE!!"
Painfully On Target
Victor A. Bary | New Jersey | 06/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had seen a few of these on HBO when they first aired and found them riveting, and painfully accurate. I had no idea it was available on DVD until it came up on a search of Amazon for something else. So I bought the DVD.

Each one of the stories is well-written, painfully in concert with my recollections of service in the "Iron Triangle" in 1967, and well-acted.

While I have given a glowing review to "Tour of Duty" elsewehere, that fine series suffers in comparison to these stories, as it felt compelled to add round-eyed love interests for the leading characters. The few round-eyes I ever saw (a French journalist and the occasional "donut dolly") certainly weren't wasting their time with enlisted personnel or junior officers. "Nevah hoppon, GI!"

Buy this DVD together with the DVD "Dear America", also available at Amazon ,and you will understand war as experienced by average young men (and a woman).

It doesn't get any more real than this."
Great Show but this is NOT the complete series....
K. Callesen | Copenhagen, Denmark | 03/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have waited many years for this great series of made for HBO stories to make the transformation to DVD. I was very disappointed to find that not all of the 'stories' made it to this collection. Perhaps they will release the final two part ending to this great set at a later date, but still I feel cheated a bit.
I still gave it five stars because it deserves five, money grubbing HBO suits notwithstanding..."
