One of my favorite movies. Nolte is riveting. Weld is haunting and Moriarty is perfection in this movie.

Karel Reisz follows up "The Gambler" with this remarkable adaptation of Robert Stone's "Dog Soldiers". Nick Nolte stars as a Vietnam vet who agrees to help his friend (Michael Moriarty) smuggle two kilos of heroin back to the States. When thugs (Ray Sharkey & Richard Masur) attempt to steal the heroin upon delivery, Nolte and Moriarty's wife (Tuesday Weld) are forced to go on the run. This is a film not only about the affect of the Vietnam War on America, but of the steady decline of the idealism of the 1960s into cynical self-indulgence. The wonderful supporting cast includes Anthony Zerbe and Charles Haid.

Nick Nolte is great in this psychological drama about drug smuggling and its consequences.

UNDERRATED. Gritty, realistic and the "story" of what happens/happened to those who "gave all" and what they had to do to "make it". Nolte does a great job in this one. Not a true "Vietnam" film as much as it is a "story", a believable one at that, which portrays the good, bad, and ugly of society during this era.
