Kirby and a select group of his men are then ordered on a special mission to capture a high-level Viet Cong officer.

Excellent action film

The Green Berets, The film has been to overly picked on for decades.It is not a masterpiece.The jungle looks not like Vietnam.The helicoptor shot is horrible for se at this time in history.It stands out horriblely.John Wayne gives a good performace in the film.The plot is centered on the green berets fight to protect a few camps and mission.The film has a few good actors.I love Sergant Mulldoon’s fighting spirt.He is the sarge.The politics may seem a bit jaded.At the time of the film,we had not lost or left vietnam.See it in the context of the time.

War is hell.

Politics aside the green berets is an excellent action and war picture -yes its dated,yes its campy,yes its sometimes cheesy and borders on the unrealistic-the helicopter crash for example and unbelievable-But i still like this movie-and i am not really a fan of john Wayne,but i find this film to be one of his best war movies-if not the best.after doing some research on this film i discovered that the some parts of the film-the gung-ho speeches at the start, the fire base,the ruthlessness of the Viet Cong,the boobytraps,and the fire fights were pretty accurate portrayals.john Wayne actually asked president Johnson for the army’s technical assistance and after looking over the script told Wayne he would have what he needed,the film was shot at Georgia’s fort benning in the summer and fall of 1967.But be warned the second half of the films trumped up Vietnamese matahari secret commando mission is pure Hollywood hokum from another era and reeks of old cheese and is strangely remaniscent of the mission from the dirty dozen.
