Not that anything's inherently wrong with a patriotic war movie, but there's a distastefulness in the film's simpleton view of mass suffering.

Presenta los hechos de una manera que recuerda a lo peor de la derecha republicana, asemejndose a la pattica y triste poca del senador McCarthy y su 'cacera de brujas'

Probably the best thing you can say about We Were Soldiers is that it does justice to an awful conflict.

Another in a long line of ultra-violent war movies, this one is not quite what it could have been as a film, but the story and theme make up for it.

This is an incredible story badly told.

A breathtaking but ultimately insubstantial fireworks display.

There is such a broad scope to the film that it seems ready to topple over on itself, but it very rarely misses a beat.

The movie is clearly diluted for mass consumption.

"Soldiers" suffers from a wounded script and some Hallmarkesque montages.

...hides behind carnage in an attempt to seem weighty, but (should not) be taken any more seriously as a historical account than an average episode of "Hogan's Heroes".
April 9, 2002
When staying true to its title--which, thankfully, is most of the time--this is an effective war picture.
