    A war movie that can really put you to sleep.

    The music was annoying. The dialogue was so difficult to hear and understand at times that I am glad I wasn't watching it in the theatre, I would have walked out in the first 20 minutes. I had to use the English subtitles to understand what was said for a good portion of the film. I can't believe I watched the whole thing. I tried to care about the characters, but couldn't. Maybe the book allows you to know them. This movie did not.

    Anti-Military Symbolism Highlights film

    No change from the usual Hollywood denigration of the military. Movie depicts officer (Nolte) sacrificing common sense and his soldiers lives to seek glory. While this type of behavior was and is the exception in the military, on the silver screen it is standard fair. Malick continues Hollywood¿s anti-war Vietnam theme, which seems totally out of place in this WWII flick. I agree with the other critic in saying this movie doesn¿t deserve even a single star.

    Doesn't even deserve this single star

    They tried to sell this movie by listing all the stars in it. But they only have one or two lines at best. Other than that the movie was absolutely sickening.. I had to fast forward through the second half.. and the only reason i did that was to catch the single line apperances of these stars. If you are looking for a war movie.. or a movie worth watching at all.. do NOT buy this film.
