VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) An extraordinary paranoia thriller with 9 National Guards running for their lives when the tables are turned.
2) The bayou; the swamps; the entire background of this in-house-Vietnam movie is exasperating.
3) The unsettling dialogue-less climax with the last 2 remaining soldiers trying to escape the Cajuns.
4) Parlez Nous à Boire

 
CONS –
1) A weak cast but still a strong movie.
