Hamburger HillThe movie is a very realistic interpretation of one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. Hamburger Hill not only underlines the futility of the war but also the pressures brought to bear upon the troops by an insensitive, often hostile media.

Critic Reviews of "Hamburger Hill"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Irvin, who shot a documentary in Vietnam in 1969, the year the action takes place, makes fine use of the Philippines locations and the verisimilitude supplied by the production team.Time OutJune 24, 2006
There are a couple of rocky moments, but the large cast of unknowns go through hell convincingly, and illustrate the randomness of mortality.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
A well-made Vietnam War film that narrows its attention to the men of a single platoon in a specific operation.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
No matter what you think of the script, it's impossible to dismiss what's up on the screen.Film4April 28, 2010
This is a film about the futility of war expressed in the simplest terms.TV GuideApril 28, 2010
Although it was underrated at the time of its release, time will eventually reveal that Hamburger Hill is one of the best and most realistic films made about the Vietnam War.EmanuelLevy.ComFebruary 27, 2007
The most remarkable traits of this realistically detailed chronicle of a crucial, bloody Vietnam War combat is that it steers clear of Stallone's right-wing machismo in Rambo and of Oliver Stone's metaphorical meanings (good versus evil) in Platoon.Spirituality and PracticeAugust 27, 2004
Serves as a grim reminder of what it was like for young men to live and die in the war in Vietnam.eFilmCritic.comMarch 18, 2003
cliched but entertaining Vietnam war drama/action.
