Film information

Story: Trio of war films, all based on the US/Vietnam conflict. Oliver Stone's award winning film 'Platoon' (1986) tells the story of a 19-year-old soldier, Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen), who is thrown headfirst into the bloody Vietnam conflict. He is forced to fight not only the Viet Cong, but also his own fears and anger. As a result of not being able to make any progress against the enemy, the soldiers, led by the unsympathetic Sergeant Barnes (Tom Berenger), are forced to turn their anger and guns on each other. In 'Tigerland' (2000), new army recruit Jim Paxton (Matthew Davis) arrives at Fort Polk for basic training. He soon makes friends with the rebellious Roland Bozz (Colin Farrell), a soldier who is doing everything he can to get himself thrown out of the army. Bozz has plans to escape to Mexico, but Paxton refuses to go with him, arguing that if he doesn't go to Vietnam, then somebody else will have to go in his place. However, when Bozz makes an enemy of his vengeful and sadistic fellow recruit Wilson (Shea Whigham), the need to get out of the army becomes even more pressing. Based on a true story, 'Hamburger Hill' (1987) is a fictionalised account of the battle to secure Hill 937 (aka Hamburger Hill), an objective that resulted in one of the bloodiest conflicts of the Vietnam War. Focusing on the exploits of 3rd Squad, 1st Platoon, Bravo Company of the 101st Airborne Division, it shows the extreme duress suffered by the soldiers involved, as they do their best to win a pointless prize in a war being fought without popular support and which - like the attempt to secure the hill itself - is destined to end in failure.
