Much agonizing over past deeds leads to murder and worse
18 August 2007 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

Low budget tale of a Viet Nam vet who goes on a trip to kill his old army buddies who forced him to commit the atrocities he can't live with.

This short (73 minutes) film is very talky as everyone agonizes of their past deeds. Well done at times, a rape is particularly unpleasant, it still didn't add up to much for me, probably because I've seen too many Vet who can't cope turns violent films. I think it also doesn't help in that the movie wants to be both a look inside the mind of damaged soldier as well as being an exploitation film.

Its not bad, but in the end I was like, so? 4 out of 10
