Emotionally Charged War FilmAnother well-casted Vietnam war film. This one now involving US Army soldiers. Having lost a good friend to hostile enemy fire, Michael J. Fox is one of the soldiers who has to confront issue of doing what is morally right versus following the orders his squad leader, played perfectly by Sean Penn, lest he risks betraying his fellow troops. One the films where you can't help but sympathise with the hero as well as the victim..Score: 4/5

Emotionally important film in its timeWhen this film came out, it was just 2 years after Michael J. Fox’s successful “The Secret of My Success”. He was popular with teens and 20-somethings as well as middle aged audiences who appreciated his former squeaky clean “Family Ties” image. Which meant that pop audiences who might not have otherwise chosen a gritty film about a difficult topic were exposed to this film. Not all of them, obviously, based on box office returns on the film, but some. I was one of those people. I was a teenaged girl who had never heard of “fragging” and had never been told about the prevalence of rape in war. This film provided a focussed (though some might argue over-simplified), emotionally comprehensible look at those two issues on a small scale. I found that small scale, at age 16 to be harrowing enough. Had the film been any more complicated or chaotic, such as in the vein of Apocalypse Now, I would likely never have been able to finish it. As an adult, I still find the film to be significant and poignant, though I cannot be sure whether that assessment is completely objective, considering how profoundly I was affected by it when I was young. At any rate, I highly recommend the film..Score: 5/5

BeastThis movie is so beast its insanely awesome.Score: 5/5

Amazing movieIncredible performance by micheal j. fox, and sean penn. basically, and all around amazing film..Score: 5/5

Brutally horrificAmazing that Brian De Palma could make a film like this. He did a great job in making this movie. It’s a tough movie to watch. Even De Palma said that it’s one of the hardest film to make. He has made some really great films, But this is the best movie he has ever made..Score: 5/5

GoodSome of the scenes were extremely hard to watch. We don't know what really happened in Vietnam and to that girl, but Sean Penn's MOVIE character seem pyschotic to me. I think his friend's death allowed him to have such strong hatred for VC (and in his mind, all Vietnamese are VC). So he takes his anger out of the innocent girl. Don't get it twisted, I am NOT sympathizing with him. I just think it's more than "I want to rape this girl". I think it's more of "I'm probably going to die soon so I'll do what I want" or "Who am I going to take my anger out of?".Score: 5/5

PowerhouseThis is a difficult film to watch, but an easy one to admire. The performances all the way around are excellent. The cinematography is lush. The score is overwhelming. One can only imagine that the lower scores on here are ones angry at the depiction of our troops. What they fail to appreciate is that the hero of our story is quite obviously also a soldier and it is not an incitement of our whole military. It is a broader idea of what happens when there is unchecked power and how weaker men are corrupted when left to their own devices. More importantly it's about good men that stand up to the corrupt..Score: 5/5

Casualties of WarI love anything with Michael J. Fox in it, but this caught my attention because I liked "Platoon." This is just as good, if not better, and deserved a little more media attention. The acting is superb and the music is so deep and emotional. If you're not sure…just buy it..Score: 5/5

български език
Обявен от критиката за шедьовър, "Жертвите на войната" е базиран на действителната история на група войници, затънали в моралното тресавище на виетнамската война. Свидетел на гнусно престъпление, редник Ериксън (Майкъл Дж. Фокс) е принуден да се изправи сам срещу останалите войници и командира на взвода, сержант Мизърв (Шон Пен), властен и обичан от подчинените си мъж, подтикнат да премине границите на варварството, от ужаса и бруталността на битките. С широк обхват, екшън и сурова мощ, режисьорът Брайън Де Палма разказва опустошителната и незабравима история за борбата на един човек за справедливост насред хаоса на войната.

Český
Příběh je založený na skutečné události. Bojová četa v něm propadla v pralesech Vietnamu šílenství. Vize a intenzita tohoto příběhu pevného postoje jediného muže, který se ve světě, kde neplatí žádná pravidla postavil na stranu zdravého rozumu, je zcela bez konkurence a zůstává nepochybně tím nejvíce strhujícím obrazem Vietnamu, jaký byl doposud na stříbrném plátně vykreslen.

Dansk
Under Vietnam-krigen bliver 5 soldater sendt på en mission. Missionen i sig selv er intet udover det ordinære, men Sergent Meserve har lagt specielle planer for denne vandretur. På vejen stopper de i en landsby, og her kidnapper delingen en ung pige, og tager med på turen. Soldaterne tæver og voldtager hende på skift, på nær en. Eriksson vil slet ikke tage del i voldsomhederne, og trodser derved den forskruede Meserve. Men hvad er reglerne i krig, og hvordan redder Eriksson sit eget skind og pigens?

Deutsch
Gerade drei Wochen ist Eriksson an der Front, als er von seinem kaltschnäuzigen Sergeant Meserve aus einer Falle des Vietcong gerettet wird. Pausenlose Feindeinsätze im vietnamesischen Dschungel strapazieren die GI’s bis zum Äussersten. Wenig später, auf einem langen Erkundungsmarsch, befiehlt Meserve schier Unglaubliches: “Zur besseren Unterhaltung” der Truppe soll eine junge Vietnamesin gekidnappt, mitgenommen und vergewaltigt werden. Meserves Männer sind von der Idee begeistert. Eriksson ist schockiert und weigert sich mitzumachen, doch bald muss er sich mehr vor seinen Kameraden fürchten als vor dem Gegner.

ελληνικά
Η ταινία αναφέρεται στο πόλεμο του Βιετνάμ και στηρίζεται στην αληθινή ιστορία του στρατιώτη Ερικσον ο οποίος υπήρξε μάρτυρας σ’ ένα στυγερό έγκλημα που τον ανάγκασε να υψώσει το ανάστημα του απέναντι στην υπόλοιπη ομάδα των στρατιωτών καθώς και στον ανώτερο του. Ο Ντε Πάλμα καταγράφει μια αξέχαστη ιστορία για την φρίκη του πολέμου και την σκληρότητα του και για την αναζήτηση ενός ανθρώπου για την λογική και τη δικαιοσύνη ενάντια στο χάος.

Español
Durante la guerra de Vietnam, unos soldados americanos secuestran, violan y asesinan a una joven campesina inocente. El único soldado del pelotón que no ha participado en los hechos se siente, sin embargo, cómplice del crimen, y amenaza con denunciarlo a sus superiores. Por eso se convierte en el objetivo de sus propios compañeros, liderados por un psicopático sargento. Basada en una historia real, aparecida en un periódico americano, la película reflexiona sobre el horror de la guerra y la vida de los combatientes, así como también de la propia naturaleza humana ante situaciones límite. La cinta se beneficia, además, de un inesperado duelo interpretativo entre el siempre espléndido Sean Penn y Michael J. Fox, en uno de los papeles más dramáticos de su carrera.

Español
Guerra de Vietnam. Recién incorporado a su pelotón, en la jungla vietnamita, el soldado Eriksson (Michael J. Fox) es testigo de un crimen brutal cometido por sus compañeros. Incapaz de permanecer al margen, se enfrentará al resto del pelotón, pero sobre todo al sargento Tony Meserve (Sean Penn), un hombre enérgico y carismático pero desquiciado por el horror y la brutalidad de la guerra.

suomi
Sodan arvet -elokuva on raadollinen kuvaus Vietnamin sodan pimeästä puolesta, kriitikoiden ylistämä mestariteos, joka pakottaa katsojan vastatusten ruhjovien ja kylmien totuuksien kanssa. Ryhmä amerikkalaisia sotilaita kaappaa nuoren vietnamilaisen tytön suoraan tämän kotikylästä. Amerikkalaiset sotilaat raiskaavat ja tappavat tytön. Nämä viisi sotilasta kävelevät moraaliseen miinakenttään, eikä paluuta entiseen ole. Nuori Eriksson ei hyväksy tekoa, mutta ei voi sitä estääkään. Kersantti Meserve on pelätty ja karismaattinen johtaja, jonka Eriksson voi haastaa vain oman henkensä uhalla. Meserve on katalysaattori, jonka kautta sodan barbaarisuus ja järjettömyys purkautuu brutaalilla tavalla.

Français
Lors d'une mission, Eriksson, jeune recrue, est sauvé d'une mort certaine par son commandant Meserve. Quelques jours plus tard, le radio de l'escouade est abattu dans un village allié. Meserve décide alors d'enlever une jeune villageoise. Eriksson, ne doutant pas du sort réservé à la jeune fille, va se battre, malgré son admiration pour son commandant, contre tous les hommes de sa patrouille.

עִבְרִית
סרטו של בריאן דה-פלמה (הבלתי משוחדים), המבוסס על סיפור אמיתי, בו קבוצת חיילים אמריקאים אנסו באכזריות שבויית מלחמה ויאטנמית. הסרט מעלה שאלות נוקבות על כללי התנהגות בעת מלחמה, ועל האפשרות (או האי-אפשרות) להיות אדם מצפוני ומוסרי בתנאי ג'ונגל, תרתי משמע.

Magyar
A vietnami háború idején öt amerikai katona indul járőrbe. Négy harcedzett, sokat, sőt túl sokat tapasztalt veteránhoz egy frissen bevonult gyalogos csatlakozik. Még sejtelme sincs róla, mennyire más a háború, mint ahogy azt otthon elképzelte. Társaiban viszont már alig maradt emberi érzés. Olyan dolgokra is képesek, melyektől újonnan érkezett társuk még iszonyodik. Azt azonban nem tudja eldönteni, hogy ha szükséges, nyíltan is szembeforduljon-e a többiekkel. Márpedig a járőr katonái elhatározzák, hogy egy szomszédos faluból elrabolnak maguknak egy helybéli lányt...

Italiano
Durante una ricognizione nel Vietnam quattro dei cinque componenti di una squadra di fanti nordamericani sequestrano, stuprano collettivamente e assassinano una ragazza vietnamita. Il quinto (Fox) li denuncia. È un fatto vero, accaduto nell'ottobre 1966. Nel 1967 i quattro furono processati e condannati da un tribunale militare. Come s'usa in questi casi, le pesanti pene furono ridotte in appello. L'unico film bellico di De Palma è un cattivo film. Diffamare la guerra è un dovere, ma qui lo si fa in modi ipocritamente e provincialmente americani. Nemmeno il dilemma etico che affligge il gracile soldato Eriksson (qual è la discriminante tra solidarietà e omertà?) diventa espressivo. La sceneggiatura di David Rabe (Streamers) è basata su un libro di D. Lang, giornalista reduce dal Vietnam.

Stephen King's Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) is a lonely, withdrawn high-school student who is the object of ridicule because of her drabness and because of the influence of her mother (Piper Laurie)--a religious zealot who has kept her in the dark about all things feminine. When Carrie experiences her first period in the gym shower, she is teased and humiliated. Threatened with expulsion from the upcoming prom, the girls' ringleader (Amy Irving) devises a plan: Amy's boyfriend (William Katt) will pretend to court Carrie and then Carrie will be elected Prom Queen. At the prom, Amy and her cohorts (including John Travolta) drop a rigged bucket of pig's blood on Carrie. Carrie's kinetic powers are now unleashed in one of the screen's most-celebrated depictions of merciless and unstoppable fury.
