The Green Berets is an exciting war film that was lambasted by critics who at the time of its release opposed the war in Vietnam. Wayne's role is similar to his part in The Longest Day (1963), but it was evident to the worldwide public that the same bravado that flew well in World War II crash-landed in 1968 in the wake of a very different war and political time. Wayne plays the hard-nosed rough-and-ready Colonel Mike Kirby who heads a courageous bunch of tough-as-nails Green Berets determined

John Wayne fans - particularly the fans of his war films - will like this movie for the chance to see him mix it up with heavy artillery.
...politics aside, the film is simply overlong and boring, which are among the greatest sins any movie can commit.
Despised by liberals in its day, The Green Berets isn't nearly as bad as its reputation.
