Just finished watching UNDER HEAVY FIRE, a few minutes ago, and still have tears in my eyes. We rented this from Net Flix and if you can get a copy of it, take the time to watch. Didn't know what to expect. Lee and I were both touched by the story. This movie received reviews on both ends of the spectrum, but as I stated, we thought it was worth watching.

The story is told in flashbacks, by the surviving members of Echo Co, along with their captain, who go back to Vietnam with a documentary crew. Was not expecting the ending...

Here's more info for you:


From the director of "Boys in Company C" and in the tradition of "Platoon" and "Apocalypse Now" comes a riveting action film about Echo Company, one of the hardest hit American units of the Vietnam War. After one of the War's most brutal battles is waged, Captain Ramsey (Casper Van Dien), the officer in charge of the campaign, is falsely accused of providing incorrect bombing coordinates, causing the senseless deaths of the men under his command. With all the odds against him, Ramsey now faces the battle of his life in this epic story about bravery, loyalty and honor.

Studio: Uni Dist Corp. (mca) Release Date: 09/27/2005 Starring: Casper Van Dien Austin Farwell Run time: 118 minutes Rating: R Director: Sidney J. Furie
