Not the usual type of a Platoon molded Vietnam caricature film where everything goes from Oliver Stone's conspiratorial mind, but I did deduct one point for the obvious and thinly veiled reference to the aforementioned film. This is a dark and sinister film where the people you thinking are playing certain roles aren't who they seem to be. The man in cloth is not so altruistic and the crazed veteran is actually what maybe called "the hero" of the story. What happened to the Vietnam veteran is a complete shame to America's record and one in which we need to rectify.
