Storyline Heading
We Were Soldiers" is based on the best-selling book which details the events of the battle of LZ X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley, We Were Soldiers Once...And Young, written by Lieutenant General Harold G. Moore (Retired) and civilian war correspondent Joseph L. Galloway, both of whom endured the brutal battle and vowed to tell the story of the men who fought and died there.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama War - This is not just a war movie. Most of the first half is spent letting you get to know the main characters before they go off to war. The war scenes are extremely graphic and bloody and many of the main characters are killed so this is not a movie with a happy ending. I say that because it seems most people want all movies to have a happy ending. This one can't. If you go in knowing this I believe this movie will receive some of the highest opinions ever seen.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "The writer-director bestows honor -- generously, apolitically -- not only on the dead and still living American veterans who fought in Ia Drang, but also on their families, on their Vietnamese adversaries, and on the families of their adversaries too.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Very Good "The movie has the ability to keep viewers on the edges of their seats and to wring tears from their eyes. It's an amazing experience, and a second success from the team that previously cooperated to give us an Oscar-winning motion picture. Their subject, both then and now, is about the courageous of spirit and brave of heart.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "...it's remarkable that We Were Soldiers includes a dedication not only to the Americans who fell at Ia Drang, but also to "the members of the People's Army of North Vietnam who died in that place''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "Wallace is so determined to realistically simulate combat that the big picture is lost. Who these brave men were and why they fought disappears under the usual clichés, while the astounding acts of courage that occurred at Ia Drang are lost to the dust and din.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

As I predicted, these opinions are OFF THE CHART! For adults to give so many "Fantastic" opinions is rare and to me indicates a movie many would probably place among the best movies they've ever seen. Even the very few somewhat lower opinions of "Good/Avg." were actually high because every one of them indicated they would recommend the movie to friends and many also said it was better than they thought it would be.

I GIVE "WE WERE SOLDIERS" MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
DON'T MISS IT!

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
I've seen thousands of movies over the years and I would say that "We Were Soldiers" is the finest movie I've ever seen. The way it bonds you with the main characters and makes you truly care what happens to them. When many of them die in the intense fighting it certainly put a lump in my throat. It also made me mad at the stupid waste of precious life. It's a very emotionally draining movie that you will find yourself thinking about hours afterwards.

I wouldn't say I enjoyed this movie since it's based on true events where many lives were lost, but I would say I found it extremely interesting and entertaining. This is a movie YOU MUST SEE! I predict the opinions will be off the charts!

Ladies, you will probably want to take some tissues. Guys, you can expect to have a lump in your throat and possibly a tear in your eye during several scenes.

I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND "WE WERE SOLDIERS"!

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
On the day before he was to lead his men off to war, Lieutenant Colonel Hal Moore addressed his soldiers and their families. Before him were young men, still innocent to war, and older men already bearing the scars and decorations of battle. And sitting among them listening to her husband's words, was Moore's own wife, Julie, who had seen him up late at night studying history books about various massacres, strategizing a better outcome for his men, the First Battalion of the Seventh Calvary...the same regiment as General George Armstrong Custer.

On Sunday, November 14, 1965 at 10:48 am., Lt. Col. Hal Moore and his young troopers touched down at Landing Zone X-Ray in the Ia Drang (pronounced: Eye Drang) Valley, a place in Vietnam known as "The Valley of Death." A man of his word, Lt. Col. Moore set foot on the field of battle first only to find himself, and approximately 400 of his men, surrounded by roughly 2000 North Vietnamese soldiers. The ensuing battle was one of the most savage in U.S. history, and the first major encounter between the soldiers of North Vietnam and America. "We Were Soldiers" is a tribute to the nobility and uncommon valor of those men under fire. It honors their loyalty to their country and to each other, and it brings to light the heroism and unimaginable sacrifice of men and women both home and abroad.
