About the Movie
Mel Gibson and Randall Wallace, the star and writer of Braveheart, reunite for this action-packed war movie that features explosive battle sequences, thrilling aerial photography and unforgettable military heroes who fought for their country, their loved ones and their freedom. The year is 1965 and America is at war with North Vietnam. Commanding the air cavalry is Lt. Col. Hal Moore (Gibson), a born leader committed to his troops. His target: the la Drang Valley, called "The Valley of Death." As Moore prepares for one of the most violent battles in U.S. history, he delivers a stirring promise to his soldiers and their families: "I will leave no man behind...dead or alive. We will all come home together." This heroic true story of commitment, courage and sacrifice also stars Madeleine Stowe, Greg Kinnear, Sam Elliott, Chris Klein, Keri Russell and Barry Pepper. We Were Soldiers is "a must-see film for our time and all time!"*

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: ... the first film in recent memory that a major studio has chosen to release early in the year with palpable filmmaking passion and production heft.
Fresh: Mel Gibson fights the good fight in Vietnam in director Randall Wallace's flag-waving war flick with a core of decency.
Rotten: By comparison, Oliver Stone's Platoon plays like the experience of a sensibly outraged man worthy of our sympathy.
Fresh: Probably the best thing you can say about We Were Soldiers is that it does justice to an awful conflict.
The best Vietnam film I have ever seen
This film accurately depicts the actions of Hal Moore's 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry. It show the unity and the brother hood that bonds soldiers together befro and during the battle. It also shows the diversity of the soldiers by the theme we were fathers we were sons …… and so on. Over all it shows patriotism. The music matches the actions and parts of the move perfectly. If you want to see a great action film that isn’t a bunch of crud that could never happen watch this If you have no clue about the Vietnam war or just want to get a clue about it this is a good one for that
Great Nam Movie
I served several tours in the 101st and fought at Battle of Hamburger Hill and several other major battles of the war. This is a great movie that really takes me back to serving. It tributes the soldiers as heros fighting to serve and protect freedom. This movie is worth the 9 bucks. It brought back both sad and good memories alike
We Were Soldiers
This is simply the best out there! It truly depicts the hardships and horor that these brave men went through in the war in Vietnam; it also depicts what the soldier's wives went through during this time. This is definately a "must buy" movie from iTunes
