Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 08/28/1987
"...[Not since APOCALYPSE NOW] has there been spectacle to equal the scenes showing the dropping of phosphorous bombs in the jungle....Vance is particularly fine..."
Variety - 08/12/1987
"...Well produced and directed with an eye to documentary-like realism and authenticity..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/28/1987
"...HAMBURGER HILL pays heartfelt, richly deserved tribute to the young American soldiers who fought so valiantly..."
Empire - 07/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "Dylan McDermott and Courtney B. Vance impress....A young Don Cheadle is one of the few survivors....HAMBURGER HILL is stirring..."

Product Description:

It was Vietnam, 1969, Hill 937, 10 days, 70 percent casualties. Those are the facts. This is the story: dodge the gunfire, get caught behind enemy lines, go into battle beside the brave young men who fought and died, and feel their desperation and futility.

Plot Synopsis:

In 1969, fourteen new Army recruits, mostly poor whites and blacks, go through the rigors of basic training in preparation for service in Vietnam. Once overseas, they are sent on a suicide mission to capture the insignificant and well-protected Hamburger Hill.

Plot Keywords:
