Plot Summary

Just release from the base stockade, recruit Roland Bozz (Colin Farrell) joins a platoon of young soldiers preparing to ship out to Vietnam. Bozz's independence and outright defiance draws fire from his own men as well as commanding officers. But when the platoon is sent to Tigerland, a hellish training ground that is the last stop before Vietnam, Bozz's leadership and loyalty bring his men together - triggering extraordinary consequences.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Beneath the rough verite exterior beats the same slick, corny heart that has pumped blood (and money) through Mr. Schumacher's Batman and John Grisham pictures. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: An affecting, old fashioned, antiwar war story. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Even when the script overtaxes the allegory about how Vietnam divided a nation at home, Schumacher and the actors prevail by fixing their sights on what happens to men on that last stop before the game of war becomes a grim reality. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: This take on Vietnam War doesn't break new thematic ground but it's Schumacher's best film since the 1993 Falling Down, and it showcases the talents of newcomer Colin Farrell, who has everything that it takes to become a major Hollywood star – Emanuel Levy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010
