1968 Tunnel Rats (2008)

Title - 1968 Tunnel Rats

Year of release - 2008

Genre - Action/War

Length - 1 hour 36 mins

Rating - 18

Director - Uwe Boll

Writer(s) - Dan Clarke and Uwe Boll

Who is in it? - Wilson Bethel as Corp Dan Green, Adrian Collins as Pvt Dan Garraty, Scot Cooper as Pvt Joseph Walderson, Mitch Eakins as Pvt Peter Harris and Erik Eidem as Pvt Carl Johnson to name a few

What's it about? - This film portrays the problems the US army faced with the Kamikaze Vietnamese soldiers.

The Army's job is to flush out the tunnels and render them useless, but little do they know that the tunnels they are in are actually above where they need to be. The Vietnamese suicide squad does its best to stop all this from happening.

Is it any good? - Despite having an air of doubt over this film after reading that the director Uwe Boll was given a Razzie award for worst director I decided to watch it. I am glad I did.

Why should I watch it? - This film has blood, action, fighting, explosions and a hint of gore. The screen play is top notch and I think the director does not deserve the Razzie, he did a fantastic job. The actors are little known but still I recommend watching.

How do you rate it overall? - 8/10
