    Having several times watched the 90min Foxtel doco featuring the actual guys and their experiences told first hand, there were a couple of things about the trailer that didn't ring true.

    Having said that, it's just a trailer, and until you watch the whole thing you just won't know.

    Look forward to it.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Great movie , a majority of veterans think it was accurate, except one thing, the main firearm used by aussie forces was the SLR , producers seem to mainly use the AR type semi auto for some reason ,

    Most of the extras and some actors were Veterans

    I wouldn't know how accurate it was but wifey and I got preview tickets a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't take our eyes off the screen. Great movie, I recommend it highly.

    Regardless of details of accuracy, if it is sympathetic to the history and the boys who served. It may well go a long way to healing the wounds of the Vietnam era. I'm not sure that anyone wanted to be there, I count myself lucky that I was a couple of years too young when it was over.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...
