2.0 out of 5 stars Good premise but disappointing ending September 6, 2007
By windk
Format:DVD
Watching this movie was a mixed bag for my family and myself. I thought that this would be a rehash of some more well known movies regarding the Vietnam War and its veterans, but I found the premise very interesting: MIAs remaining in Vietnam 30+ years after, and U.S. government agency intentions to find them. I also had the preconceived notion that a it would have low production and storyline quality. However, I was actually surprised at the quality of the production, especially the flashback scenes. The actors in the flashback scenes do an excellent job and add much to the realistic nature of these scenes. The main actors are also effective enough, but the hotel room scenes do get tiresome. The thing that disappointed me and my family was the ending - it was so abrupt that I wondered if the producers ran out of money and decided to call it quits. I wont give the ending away, but the premise of national intelligence agency involvement with a presidential hopeful seems rather far fetched. I would have given this movie 3 stars if it weren't for the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars The sequal to "Under Heavy Fire." May 2, 2008
Format:DVD
When I first saw this at the local dvd rental store I went on the thought to rent it just because it was another "Vietnam War" movie and it's good to see more coming out!
However as I watched this within minutes I saw the connection and its an obvious second part to "Under Heavy Fire!!"
I was happy of course because though "Under Heavy Fire" is not an epic 5 star movie, I did enjoy it a lot!!

I wont give away things at all in this movie, but this "Veteran" brought back all the characters from "Under Heavy Fire" and made it better.
The main issue is about MIA's but it all ties in well with the main plot from "Under Heavy Fire."

I heavily recommend watching "Under Heavy Fire" first and then the "Veteran" second and you will see quite a connection and near sequal!

1.0 out of 5 stars One short movie plus lots of archive footage August 10, 2008
Format:DVD
The premise about American soldiers missing in action in the Vietnam war still being in Vietnam is an interesting one. But it's not well executed. Not until after watching the movie did I learn that the flashback scenes were archive footage from another movie, (Under Heavy Fire, aka. Going Back). That explains the difference in production values between those scenes and present-day sceness that were actually shot for this movie. The present-day storyline is very thin and seems to be nothing more than a means to connect the flashback scenes, in order to get two movies for the production cost of one and a half. The result is rather incoherent and also quite dull and unsatisfying. Not recommended.
