I was extremely divided on this one. I thought the performances (especially Penn and Le's) and the dialogue were excellent. But then again, director Brian De Palma decides to stuff the anti-war message down our throats, with overly excessive scenes of violence and brutality. The scenes involving the rape of Le, make this an extremely uncomfortable experience to watch all the way through. I figure if you have the stomach for this, and can deflect De Palma's attempts to hammer his message into you, go right ahead and watch it.
