Based on an actual incident that occurred during the Vietnam War, a girl is taken from her village by five American soldiers. Four of the soldiers rape her, but Private Eriksson (Fox) refuses. The young girl is killed, but not forgotten. Eriksson (Fox) is determined that justice will be done, even if it means standing up to his commanding officer (Penn). This is a study of how morality can become one of the Casualties Of War. (Suzanne Hodges)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture exhibits images that are sharp and detailed, though occasionally images appear slightly smeared. Colors are well balanced, and rich, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation appear well balanced. There is occasional edge enhancement and pixelization, but overall the picture is quite satisfying. (Suzanne Hodges)
