Michael J. Fox’s 1989 Vietnam War Movie Depiction Was “Just Not Right,” Says Expert

Michael J. Fox’s 1989 Vietnam War Movie Depiction Was “Just Not Right,” Says Expert

A military history expert gives low marks for realism to Michael J. Fox’s Vietnam War movie. Fox starred opposite Sean Penn in Brian De Palma’s Vietnam epic, which told the harrowing true story of an incident in which a Vietnamese woman was raped and murdered by a squad of American soldiers. Released amid the Vietnam War movie boom of the late ‘80s, the intensely dramatic film was a box office failure, grossing just $18 million on a budget of $22 million.
