Underwhelming imperfect docudrama
What was stated as a story of John Ripley and Le Ba Binh and their fight during the war was little about the actual acts.
I had hoped it was a deep story of the 1972 offensive that had not been covered much but other than some of Ripley’s heroics on the Dong Ha Bridge mentioned by interviewees little more was stated.
It jumped and spent most of the time in post Easter Offensive with Ripley watching TV showing clips of antiwar clips (Fonda. Kerry) and long scenes of Le Ba Binh in re-education camps after fall of South Vietnam.
In some selected clips, the whole story was not given. For example, when Vietnam was split, the south was supposed to have elections (did not). Diem was not a saint (Reagan clip), that all the South Vietnamese wanted the US there or even the Thieu government.
What was missing was any real mention of Johnson’s refusal to expand the war, the false projections (media got this right) we were winning, and Nixon administration handling the peace deal so not a balanced account.
The look and feel of the dramatic sequences was more of a reality show.
