Big Red One, the

The autobiographical account of Samuel Fuller's experience with World War II is smartly done and is very stylish. It's a simple war story about five soldiers surviving many near-death and life-altering experiences together in this ruthless and terrible war. Possibly a bit too simplistic for some but it's very suspenseful and there are also funny bits of humor strategically placed within. The Big Red One is believable with a wonderful cast; I recommend it, especially to people who love films about war.
