Discover Vietnam War Movies and Documentaries films
Vietnam war movies is one of the hottest subjects in motion picture industry after the Vietnam War ended in April 30, 1975. According to Martin Novelli’s research, the representation of the Vietnamese in Vietnam War movies is woefully stereotyped. The films producer usually created Vietnamese civilians are typically shown as passive victims, prostitutes, as well as conniving with the enemy, although North Vietnamese or guerrilla fighters in many cases are driven as cruel torturers or effeminate cowards, and the Armed forces of the Republic of Vietnam are identified as incompetent. The South Vietnamese armed forces are criticized for being mediocre troops with not reliable leaders. That may have been so that in some cases but we recognize most of the South Vietnamese troopers, sailors, airmen and Marines were reliable troops, also led by proficient officers who put up a damn fine fight.
Vietnam war movies are based on Vietnam war occurrences (1955-1975) and the 2nd stage is the most intensive phase of the Indochina War (1945-1979). This is exactly a war between the two sides, one side is the Republic of Vietnam in South Vietnam and the United States Of America and some allies such as Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Thailand and the Philippines battled directly.
The Vietnam War is combat caused the most very hurtful in the history of Vietnam as well as significantly divisive in the heart of the people of Vietnam and turmoil and division in the USA and many other countries. Depending on the source, the number of people killed in the Vietnam War is from 3 to 5 million, millions of many others were injured and disabled. The survivors continuously face horrible problems of social and economic environment that has brought by the war. In the United States, other than 58 220 soldiers killed and 305,000 injured (which includes 153 303 handicapped), many of the 2.7 million American soldiers who fought troops in Vietnam suffer the pain of a mental disorder, also known as the “Vietnam Syndrome.”
