    Synopsis


    The Green Berets
    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 to capture an important enemy general. They are accompanied by a skeptical reporter who soon becomes a gung-ho red-white-and-blue patriot as the Colonel and the others lecture and show him why they must defeat the "commies." Interestingly, despite the massive anti-war sentiments of the times, the film grossed over $11 million at the box-office and is especially notable for the fine battle scenes. The film also features the hit song "Ballad of the Green Berets," sung by Sgt. Barry Sadler. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

      This is a great movie , I had seen this movie along time ago and when I saw it again I decided that I had to own it. This movie has a great story line and some really good combat scenes. The ending is a real tear jerker, a must see.

      this was the 1st movie to come out about Viet Nam. It was definitely pro war. The way it portrayed the VC as vile evil people and the Americans as the good guys was typical of films that came out during WW II. John Wayne was able to carry it off. I pretty much like anything that John Wayne starred in.

      I've always loved this movie. I wasn't in the military, but enjoy movies about them. This one highlights the hard work the Green Berets have to go through during a war. Very enjoyable movie.

      My father got me hooked on John Wayne movies when I was young. When I saw this in the discount bin, it was a no brainer.

      Not one of John Wayne's best movies, but a decent action flick just the same. Fine supporting cast.
