This is a true story of what happens in war when morality and ethics are tossed aside. The killing that is involved in war gets mixed up with murder, bigotry, and revenge in this factual horror story.
Fox is excellent as the naive but ethical young man exposed to a “Nobody cares” atmosphere in the midst of war. The film not only shows what can happen to human beings when they let go of any sense of conscience, but it is also a metaphor of the amoral mentality that was behind the Viet Nam conflict and its aftermath.
The struggle depicted here is between going along with the group or maintaining one’s own integrity. Are there rules of war? Are there rules of living? These are the profound questions which underlie the action in this disturbing film.
There’s hard hitting, and then there’s Casualties of War
CASUALTIES OF WAR tells the excruciating true story of a squad of American soldiers during the Vietnam War, who kidnap and rape a young Vietnamese girl in the name of fun. The story is told through the youthful and innocent eyes of Michael J. Fox, in a rare dramatic performance that may be his career-best.
Films like this can hardly be enjoyed, but CASUALTIES OF WAR proves to be unmissable entertainment and one of the harshest war stories out there; also, one of the best. It’s a bit like watching a film of a train wreck, where you can’t tear yourself away from what’s happening and what you know is going to happen. The tragic, soul-searing story is one of the most moving I’ve ever seen.
A film like this needs a great director to tell it, and de Palma is that director. He wisely lets the story tell itself for the most part, but he can’t resist incorporating a couple of flourishes (like the POV sequence) that remind us of his skill as an auteur. The cast is great, too, particularly the newbie actors (John C. Reilly and John Leguizano) playing soldiers and Sean Penn as the hateful sergeant. Understandably, Thuy Thu Le has the toughest role, and it’s one she walks away from with her head held high; if ever an actress deserved an Oscar nod, it’s her.
