Mark Olsen Los Angeles Times With 1968: Tunnel Rats, Boll continues to show himself to be an unusually versatile filmmaker -- outrageously awful in any genre. Rated: 1/5 Dec 19, 2008 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid A good film from Uwe Boll? You bet! Rated: 3/4 Aug 13, 2010 Full Review Bill Gibron very good -- and that's amazing, considering who's receiving said accolade. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 29, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

Curran D Really geat film that will keep you on your toes. Shows both sides of the war. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/16/23 Full Review Elvis D La película retrata el terror que sufren los soldados y toda la violencia que enfrentan. Lo hace de una manera bien lograda y las actuaciones son convincentes. Además, las matanzas son brutales y los efectos de maquillaje estuvieron a cargo de Olaf Ittenbach quien ha realizado películas super gore que ahora son consideradas de culto. Esta película está a un paso de alcanzar Apocalypse Now y Platoon, pero como toda película de Uwe Boll existen algunos tropiezos. La historia estuvo bastante bien, pero necesitaba más elementos y ser más extensas. También oí que la película tiene el error de mencionar dispositivos que aún no existían en la época de la guerra de Vietnam (aunque yo no sé mucho sobre historia y no pude identificar tal error) y además los combates que ocurren en los túneles apenas se distinguen, ya que dichas escenas son oscuras. El resto de la película está bien y no veo razón de porque debe ser mala y simplemente es otra película bélica más del montón. Para concluir, Tunnel Rats demostró ser una pequeña mejora para el estilo de filmación de Uwe Boll y aunque no sobresalió lo suficiente, al menos fue una película aceptable. Mi nota final para esta película es un 7/10 y al igual que las demás películas que pude ver de Uwe Boll, me pareció interesante. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/12/23 Full Review Likydsplit The premise of the movie was excellent; a platoon trapped in a tunnel fight, with a surface fight raging above. But the execution of the film was marred by innumerable inexcusable detail flaws. Was not a single Vietnam vet consulted on this film? From the American camp with no cleared fields of fire, no prepared defensive positions, and no sentries - to outright stupid tunnel clearing tactics, to the predictable radio failure - the setup for the story's sequences so stains credibility that the viewer has no chance of being invested in what becomes a running mishmash of action scenes strewn together with no real direction. The whole thing did, however, make me want to see better movie based on the story idea. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 10/11/22 Full Review laurie s If this is an accurate portrayal of US soldiers then no wonder they never win wars. British soldiers would have set up a parameter round the camp using booby traps which would have doubled as an early warning system so they wouldn't become overrun. They obviously weren't trained in jungle warfare either. This wasn't a bad film though. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Onesta rappresentazione di un particolare della guerra in Vietnam mai particolarmente sfruttato dal cinema. Owe ha il merito di non rendere mai noioso alcun passaggio. La scena di gran lunga migliore è il pianto del soldato in primo piano, dopo l'esecuzione del nemico. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member If you were expecting Rambo, this is not it, but rather a more realistic face of war.
