Film information

Story: Recognised as one of the inspirations for Stanley Kubrick's 'Full Metal Jacket' (1987), this Vietnam war film follows the lives of five young Marines (Stan Shaw, Andrew Stevens, James Canning, Michael Lembeck and Craig Wasson) from their boot camp training through a tour in Vietnam that quickly turns into an awful nightmare. Disillusioned by futile combat, dismayed by the corruption of their South Vietnamese ally, and constantly endangered by the incompetence of their own company commander (Scott Hylands), the marines manage to find a possible way out of the war. They are told that if they can defeat a rival football team, they can spend the rest of their tour playing exhibition soccer games behind the lines. But as they might have guessed, nothing in Vietnam is as simple as it seems.

Starring: Stan Shaw, Andrew Stevens, James Canning, Michael Lembeck, Craig Wasson, Scott Hylands, Drew Michaels, Santos Morales, Noble Willingham, James Whitmore Jr.

Directed by: Sidney J. Furie
