      Chronos It was a nice pass time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/19/22 Full Review Audience Member They had a cast that could have made it a decent film, but lackluster directing and poor acting made this inadequate mess almost unwatchable. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member it is amazing because it has cool make up Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review dave j Friday, June 13, 2014 (1994) The Walking Dead WAR Not to be confused with the TV series that started in 2010 which involves zombies, this is strictly a 'war' movie made in 1994 from HBO which focuses on 5 marines being stranded somewhere along the Vietnam jungle, using the saving mission operation as a backdrop to tell viewers how these specific 5 became marines in the first place. It includes a preacher, a thug, and a young man who was living in his mom's basement. Not one war story had anything to do with pride. I mean, what are the odds that all 5 of them had an "ulterior motive" for joining. The other thing I had a problem with, is that there are times, the fighting war scenes didn't look like how actual war scenes was supposed to look like since it looked fake and stagey, and despite the good ending, it doesn't offer anything new viewers can't come up with themselves. 2 out of 4 stars Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Seriously, it f$@&ing sucked Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of the most idiotic war movies ever created. Marines on a Vietnam POW rescue mission ditty bopping through the jungle, smoking weed, and arguing the whole time. The writer and director should both be shot.

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly The zombie-horror-film title is the most dramatic feature of this meandering combat melodrama. Rated: D+ Aug 5, 2015 Full Review Emanuel Levy Variety Paying tribute to the black American combat soldier, this is an earnest, socially conscious film that is neither effective as an actioner nor as a personal drama. Rated: C Oct 31, 2006 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com An admirable attempt, but these soldier's stories could be told a whole lot better. Rated: 2/5 Apr 3, 2005 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 2/5 Jul 29, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews
