    Easily worth a fiver if you like (stark reality of) war films. Caught it on one of the sky movie channels and enjoyed it.

    fantastic film, a real gem when i discovered it.

    the filming style of it is similar to band of brothers.

    mind you i think its 4:3 which is a shame.

    great film though i would recomend to any war film buffs.

    It's an HBO TV movie, shot in 4:3 by the same director that made Hamburger Hill.
    Quite a reasonable 2.0 surround audio track on it though.

    Like has already been said, very much in the style of Band Of Brothers and doesn't hold back when showing how devastating/futile war is. Much better than you'd think it would be given its TV-movie roots
