Poor attempt at depicting the Vietnam War
Verified purchase
If you’ve watched Platoon, We Were Soldiers Once and to some degree, Full Metal Jacket and Heaven and Earth, Hamburger Hill pales in comparison and ends up being trite and cliched with lame acting.

Cortney Vance’s acting is absolutely awful and each time he’s on screen the movie dies just that little bit more.

The film is based around real life events but with such poor dialogue and acting, it falls wide of the mark in depicting the bravery of the soldiers who were there and the true horrors of war.

This movie should be remade with a bigger budget, better actors and a better script.

one of the better Vietnam War movies
Verified purchase
One of the better Vietnam war movies... It tells
the story of the assault on Hill 937 at the A Shau
Valley in 1969.

It starts with the arrival of a bunch of FNGs, that
is F***ing New Guys, who are green to Nam... The
jargon is about right, and it does show some of the
darker side of the war, like the brothels and friendly
fire. The battle scene are quite good, but we hardly
see the POV of the NVA or VC, they seem to be an
invisible enemy. Maybe that was the point, but there
were two sides to this battle...

Overall, still a good film.

So Loud
Verified purchase
I had to switch this film off after 10 minutes the noise of bombs going off, gunfire and general mayhem meant that you could not hear anything that the actors were saying to each other. I have rather gone off watching films about Vietnam after this and sitting through the redux version of Apocalypse Now.

Grim viewing.
Verified purchase
Not much of a story here, but if you ever wanted a film that fully demonstrated the grim, unrelenting, utterly terrifying misery of modern warfare, then this is it. I struggled to make out what was being said a lot of the time. I don't know if that's the fault of the actors, the DVD or my ageing ears, but it was pretty hard work.

Eat hamburgers and prepare to get hilly with this classic.
Verified purchase
One of the only independent Vietnam war movies, attempting to showcase the day-to-day lives of infantrymen in the 101st Airborne Division, their interactions with the Vietnamese they encounter, racial tensions within the US military during the sixties, and finally, the brutal attempt to take Hill 937, the aftermath of which caused what could be considered a turning point in American public opinion about military involvement in Vietnam.

A triumph of direction
Verified purchase
Very realistic, and obviously violent scenes but not gratuitous at all. All were entirely in context. Two scenes I found harrowing, specifically, when so many were shot by "friendly fire" & in the final push for the summit of the hill. Brave men indeed who shamed many protestors at the time back in the States, showing a courage beyond any call of duty. Thank you to such men and those who have followed.

Well worth the rental. Huge respect for those who fought to win, “Hamburger Hill!”
Verified purchase
A film worth watching as a tribute to the young men who did fight for Hamburger Hill during the Vietnam War, true guts and determination under Overwhelming odds. Sadly the gill passed back and forth during further campaigns.
