Rating: 3/5 -- Despised by liberals in its day, The Green Berets isn't nearly as bad as its reputation.
Rating: F -- If you liked this film, you're probably also thrilled with W's Iraqi war. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: D -- When I first saw this at an NCO club during the Vietnam War, Army vets laughed and catcalled throughout the film because of the preposterous dialogue and action sequences.

Rating: C -- One of the first movies about Vietnam is also one of the weakest and most preposterous right-wing agit-prop Full Review
Simplicities of the right, simplicities of the left, but this one is beyond the possible. It is vile and insane. On top of that, it is dull. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 0/4 -- The Green Berets simply will not do as a film about the war in Vietnam. It is offensive not only to those who oppose American policy but even to those who support it. Full Review
Rating: 4/10 -- ...politics aside, the film is simply overlong and boring, which are among the greatest sins any movie can commit. Full Review
One of the first American films specifically about the Vietnam War was also one of the most hawkish, offering a pro-intervention perspective at the height of the conflict. Filmed along the conventions of a World War II action drama, a gung-ho colonel battles the vicious Viet Cong while protecting innocent civilians, befriending an orphaned boy, and reforming a liberal newspaperman's misguided political views.
