Reviews for The Big Red One

Review - Big Red One, The

It seemed rather small-budget, but the concentration on the action for a single platoon actual made it easier to follow than is the case with many war movies. There wasn't really a plot apart from the war itself, and the four G.I.s were rather interchangable, but Lee Marvin as the Sgt. was good.
