    This is an excellent depiction of the insanity that was the war in Viet Nam. My view as a naval officer during a scenic tour of the Mekong near theCambodian border and the Vietnamese city of Chau Phu, permitted me to be awitness to many, many occasions involving the wholesale abuse of humans byhumans. The strain on mind, body and soul takes years (if ever) to repairand this film captures it. There are brief glimpses of this agony in someof the other films mentioned here in the reviews, e.g., Apocalypse Now, FullMetal Jacket and Platoon. Each of these films have merit but are deeplyflawed. Apocalypse Now is steeped in moral allegory to the expense of anaccurate portrayal of the war; Full Metal Jacket is only 2/3 completed;Platoon becomes a Levi-Straussian moral tale with an arch villain andvirtuous hero– the latter heinously slain by the former with revengeexacted by the weary sojourner on the odyssey. OK. What do we have herewith Hamburger Hill? A story? Heroic acts? Action? Not really. What wehave is the horror and insanity of war. The film ends on the same pointlessnote as it began. But, you know what? Reading through the detractors ofthis film who touted the other potential three and slammed this one, I wouldnot hesitate to bet they were never there. I could glance at the reviewsand pick out the vets– not just on the basis of whether they liked thisfilm or not but of how they reacted to it. I know and know damn well. Itoo was there, brothers. See this film. It’s well produced, directed andthe cast is damn good. Check it out.

    I, like most of the other people posting comments, believe it is a veryrealistic movie. Some have commented that they didn’t like the characters.Well, I’m a military helicopter pilot and I have worked with the infantryonmany missions. When they are in the field, they are subject to a rawlifestyle that few would understand if they had not lived it. I’ve seenthemand I’ve carried them. They do not apologize for the way they look, act oreven smell when they,ve been out for days and weeks. When you see thecomplete fatigue in their faces, you would not expect them to. They arewhothey are and I’m proud to have carried them as a crew chief on a CH47earlier in my career and now as a UH60 pilot.But the movie does need a "goof" link for some critical errors. The menwhoassaulted Dong Ap Bia "Hamburger Hill" were never attacked by a UH1. Thefratricide events occurred 4 documented times. Once by a Skyraider(fixed-wing) and three separate times by AH1 Cobras. The Skyraiderdropped,I believe a 1000 pound bomb and the Cobras shot them up with their machineguns and rockets.Having pointed this out, I do realize that the film industry, putting outalower budget film, might have a difficult time actually finding a Cobra touse. Hueys are easy to find and cheap to operate.Also, the scenes with who is supposed to be Col. Honeycutt in the Commandand Control helicopter (you never really see him)portrays him ascompletelyout of harms way during the battles. The fact is that he was in harms way,with NVA artillery constantly. He and his staff also ended up in a firefight themselves. The radio traffic also leads you to believe he isuncaringand dogmatic with his people. I could only answer this by pointing outthatsomeone had to be the commander and it was a difficult mission. But, the"ruthless uncaring leader" (almost as a matter of political correctness)isthe only way Hollywood will portray a commander in Viet Nam. Too badthough,that episode with his staff would have been interesting to have seen actedout.It doesn’t change my opinion of the film though. It’s one of my favoritesinmy DVD library.

    I was an infantryman in the field in Vietnam. There are only 2 Vietnammovies that are even close to real – this one and Apocalypse Now, and theyare both as close as a movie can get.

    Hamburger Hill gets it right in many ways, the banter among the grunts, thefatalism mixed with the desire to survive a vicious war, the emotionalstress of seeing your fellow GI’s become casualties. The GI jargon used inthe writing is the most authentic in any movie about that war. But most ofall it depicts the incredible, to me mystical, bravery which drives any maninto terrible battle in any war, on any side. This movie is anunpretentious marvel.

    As for Apocalypse Now, it gets it right in a very different way.Everythingin that movie actually happened in Vietnam, crazy as each scene may be toone who wasn’t there. Take it scene by scene. Believe everything you see.(Except, of course, the whole Col. Kurtz – private army – assassinationtheme, which was out of the book about war in South Africa. It made agreathook for this movie, but no U. S. Army senior officer ever went off thedeepend like that.)

    Many excellent Vietnam films, in an attempt to present their owninterpretation of America’s darkest hour, ask many political questions vitalto the war: "What were we fighting for?" "Was this worth it?" "When doesmorality take over?" "When does the fighting stop?"

    On the other hand, "Hamburger Hill" doesn’t need to state any suchquestions. Rather, it presents the viewer with the scenario– a group of mentrying to advance on a hill– and allows him to come to his own conclusions.It is a wonderful display of characters from all walks of life, and how hardtimes brought them together. Some want to be there, others don’t, but theycall all make the same statement: When it comes to their determination toget on top of that hill and advance upon the enemy, all of those politicalquestions "don’t mean nothin’."

    This is probably the best Vietman film as far as visuals go. The actionssequences are raw and gory, and the locations are incredibly depressing–setting the perfect stage for a war movie. Combined with excellentperformances by everyone involved, this is certainly an underrated film thatpresents a clear picture of what the war truly might have beenlike.

    This is one of the very best and most realistic movies on the Vietnam War. There is no politicizing angst like "Platoon" and no flights of fantasy andmetaphysics like "Full-Metal Jacket" or "Apocalypse Now". Those movies weretoo full of themselves and their "message" (and Oliver Stone, in particular,sought more to advance his political viewpoints by distortion rather thanshow realistic combat). These guys in the 101st Airborne were engaged in abrutal, actual battle. From the first ambush scene through each of theassaults on the hill, realism was achieved. The North Vietnamese hidingsafe in their bunkers during air-strikes, only to emerge and start shootingand rolling grenades down the hill again on the paratroopers–all real. Theconversations among the troops, about what they would do when they got home,what kind of car they would buy, are all typical of what I remember from myyear over there in the infantry. There was no pontificating about good andevil as with Oliver Stone’s much overrated "Platoon". Most of all, itshowed guys trying just to take care of each other, while still carrying onwith a meat-grinder of a mission. The actors were all virtually unknown atthe time this was made, but acquitted themselves well. This movie wasunfortunately underpromoted and slipped virtually unnoticed through thetheaters, leaving most of us to catch it in the video stores. I am glad Icame across it. If you missed this one, go rent it.

    No stars, no over the top heroics, no secret missions. Brutallyrealistic and historical accurate Nam film. One of the very few so far.One can nit-pick over the dialogue interludes throughout the film, butas with any story there has to be a set backdrop for characters todevelop from. You have to know a little about these guys before you canreally feel for them. It’s a plot device but it works and takes nothingaway from the film. Well done war films are a rarity, especiallyVietnam era ones. This particular film is truly a good one. I wouldeven consider it an excellent film for history students of the war andit’s times. The last scene screams out in silence what every combat vetknows and feels.

    Drawing from a good book by the same name concerning a real battle, the filmchose to concentrate on a single unit of the 101st Airborne during thisengagement instead of the strategies and tactics of the battle. Fictionalizing the characters we see the typical group of soldiers, somenew, some veterans, some black, some white, some Hispanic, conduct assaultafter assault on a hill for some reason that they only have a vague conceptof. But instead of making the battle slick and interlaced with subplotsabout the possession of souls (such as "Platoon") or a work of art (such as"Apocalypse Now" or "Full Metal Jacket") the characters are real and thebattle is believable.

    Whether intentional or not, it is hard to identify individuals in this film. The viewer is aware that there are ethnic and class separations butidentities are harder. I believe that this was intentional to some extentby the director so that the impression could be made that this could be anyunit and the soldiers could be anyone that you may know. Like the facelessnames on the Vietnam War monument during the opening of the film, thesesoldiers are essentially faceless forcing the viewer to place a face andpersonality that they are intimate with. The real star of the movie is thebattle and the tragedies that resulted. As with the better, and moreaccurate war films, there are no heroics, just fear; there is no gloriousflag waving over a captured fortification, just survivors.

    Again, with the better war films it is the little stuff that separates thegood ones from the "cowboys and Indians in battle dress" ilk: the radiooperator calling in an artillery strike in panic and is reprimanded for notusing proper radio protocol, the mud slide down the hill right in the middleof the battle, the officer trying to call for reinforcements and realizingthat his radio was blown to bits along with his arm. All of these "touches"are real and give credibility to a film. In this case "Hamburger Hill"stands apart, and somewhat higher, than most films about thesubject.

    Extremely brutal and fierce true story about one particular group in the 101Airborne Division, who spend ten days and eleven battles trying to claim amuddy and well-occupied hill that’s dubbed "Hamburger Hill".

    The cast in this film were mostly unknown like Dylan McDermott (who made hisfilm debut here) and Steven Weber who both play the platoon’s two weary anddetermined sergeants, Don Cheadle is one of the five new recruits, MichaelBoatman and Courtney Vance are also in the cast. It’s certainly well-actedby McDermott and Vance..

    John Irvin ("The Dogs of War") directed the film and here, he lets theemotions of the soldiers go very far but not too far and the same can bementioned for the battle scenes. Also, Irvin take a page of RobertAldrich’s WW2 classic and unforgettable melodrama "The Dirty Dozen".Instead of making instant up close shots as Aldrich did, Irvin slowly movesthe camera in and it captures the unpredictable feeling that any of theG.I.s have. I wasn’t moved, yet I was amazed as well.

    Jim Carabatos ("Heartbreak Ridge") wrote the movie’s story and like Irvin,Carabatos is careful in making the tale absolutely clear and veryunderstanding to the viewer. The point that Irvin and Carabatos are tryingto make is fascinating and simple: No one here is trying to be the hero northe villain because surviving the war is a more important factor than tryingto be gutsy and wind up being killed.

    "Hamburger Hill" isn’t the type of war movie like Oliver Stone’s "Platoon"or Stanley Kubrick’s "Full Metal Jacket" were, but it tends to be likeTerrence Malick’s "The Thin Red Line" was a few years ago. It’s a fierceand very thoughtful film

    Minor spoilers here…

    This is one seriously disturbing film. I can’t even begin to describejusthow disturbing it is. It has a pencil-thin storyline, too, and isultimately pointless. Those are just a few of the qualities that makethisperhaps the best — and I cringe at that word, because it’s really aterrible experience to behold — film yet made about the Vietnam conflict.Built around a cast of unknowns, all of whom turn in utterly convincingperformances, this film’s script must be either (a) really short or (b) areal mess. Most of the dialogue in the film’s last half, for example, ismilitary jargon and yelling, with a lot of screaming thrown in for goodmeasure. Much of the dialogue that precedes it is the kind of meandering,pointless talk that real people — as opposed to actors in a theatricalproduction — fill time with. This feature, a failing in many otherfilms,.is part of what makes this film work. If the film is largely withoutpointthat is only because the taking of Hill 937, the ‘Hamburger Hill’ of thetitle — was ultimately pointless (as was, in the larger sense, the entireVietnam adventure and as is, ultimately, most war itself). The brutallyrepetitive storming of Hamburger Hill that occupies the second half of thefilm, particularly from May 15 on (the assault began on May 10, 1969 andwasfinally completed ten days later), is mindnumbing. Well, you WISH that itwere mind-numbing, but your mind’s all too awake and aware, and the imagesthat fill it are horrible. This movie has some gruesome scenes and a lotofgore. Is it gratuitous? No. Well, yes, in the sense that the real-lifeequivalent is just as gratuitous and unnecessary. Is it realistic? Yes.That’s what makes it so horrible. Added to this is an extreme sense ofconfusion to the viewer that mirrors the confusion of the soldiers. Allwaris better understood after the fact, or by those who draw arrows oncampaignmaps and make the decisions at the time, and this film does not presentthebig picture at all. Again, this only places us in greater empathy withtheyoung men sent to complete an ultimately futile task. For that matter,I’mnot sure that much of the Vietnam War was even able to be accuratelycharacterized by arrows drawn on maps.

    The acting’s first-rate, in that it’s less acting — or appears thatway –than real response to an insane situation. Dylan McDermott, Steven Weber,and a couple of others look familiar to me from subsequent projects, butatthe time the entire cast was basically new to film, or close enough toit.

    An interesting feature of the film is that the NVA soldiers are shown –these are NVA regulars and not the unseen ‘Cong’ or ‘Charlie’ of otherfilms(the Viet Cong were largely a spent force after the 1968 Tet Offensive) –and the US soldiers, of the legendary 101st Airborne, have more in commonwith them than with their own commanders. Helicopter-delivered ‘friendlyfire’ only reinforces the question of who the real enemy are, as doesintrusion (via letters, a tape recording, a film crew, and personalanecdotes of men home for leave) from ‘The World,’ an America that hadturned its back on — if not spat on — the GIs stuck in Vietnam. Theblack-white, poor-privileged issue is effectively entered into severaltimes, too.

    I’ve never been in combat and was still a kid when the Vietnam war ended,but a friend of mine — who completed three tours of duty in Vietnam withthe Marines (1967-1969…lovely time to be there) — told me that it’s themost realistic Vietnam-war movie that he’d seen. He avoided seeing anymovies that would remind him of Vietnam but, in the ’80s, his young sonbegan asking him about the War and he was forced to begin dealing withthings that he had covered over and mentally put aside. ‘Processing’ theVietnam experience, as pop psychologists might say. Part of hisself-administered therapy was catching up on movies made on the topic. Hedidn’t talk to me about what he saw in combat (my grandfather wassimilarlytaciturn about his WWI experiences) but he did tell me enough about someofthe ancillary matters, like his treatment when he returned to the US, thatIwas glad that he stopped there. His film recommendations were telling,though. He dismissed the phenomenal "Apocalypse Now" as unrealistic –notsurprising, because, at heart, it is neither about Vietnam nor war — andhealso said that "Platoon" was bogus. In his experience, at least."Hamburger Hill," he said — watch Hamburger Hill and you will begin tounderstand how it was there. I’d never heard of the movie, but I watchedit– this was over a decade ago — and saw what he meant. I haven’t watchedit again until today. I wasn’t in any particular hurry, either. It’s anasty movie, but only because it was documenting a nastysituation.

    This is a movie that I always feel I have to be careful in recommending.It’s just a bit too disturbing for some, especially those who avoidviolencein movies. The fact that this is not some Charles Bronson exploitationfilmdoesn’t really matter, in that respect, and the violence in this film isfarmore real and random than in any ‘slasher’ film. I can’t believe that theUS military actually cooperated in the making of this film. What I dobelieve is that this should be required viewing for those who don’t evenblink at sending young men into war, especially for an empty cause. Whatdid the Screaming Eagles do with the hill once they’d finally seized it?They were choppered out after a while, of course. Does that make sense toyou? I hope not.

    There were many battles for useless real estate in Vietnam butHamburger was among those that cost the most lives and John Irvin’stelling of it on film is up there in my list of the three best filmsabout Vietnam, the other two being "Platoon" and "We Were Soldiers" Thecritics generally overlooked HH but that doesn’t change the fact thatit was great movie in my opinion and the actors, while for the mostpart unknown, did a great job. They were "believable" as grunts.Theyhad the lingo of that day down pat and their characters were wellformed by the time the movie gets to the job of taking the Hill. Thisis especially true of Courtney B.Vance who played Doc.
