Set during the Allied invasion of the island of Guadalcanal in the Pacific theater during WWII, this film is based on the novel by James Jones. Keir Dullea is Private Doll, who dreads the invasion and steals a pistol to help him protect himself. Sergeant Welsh (Jack Warden), a caustic, battle-scarred veteran, hates Doll, whom he considers a coward. In battle, Doll kills a Japanese soldier and is filled with remorse, which further angers the sergeant. The next day, an emboldened Doll wipes out an entire enemy machine gun post and begins to feel as sadistic as Welsh. The two must work together to clear away some mines, but as they do, their platoon is surprised by a Japanese raid.

Vikas M (ag) wrote: The sucess of this film relies on the brillaint performace of Mahesh Babu as an undercover cop who pretends to be a gangster and kills the biggest mafia rings in Asia. The comedy seems out of place but Bhramanandam garu is fun to watch none the less. Raju Sundaram master as done an excellent job with the song "dole dole" and the rest of the songs are good to listen to. The dialog " Once im committed i dont even listen to myself" is one of the cleaverly written dialogs. Overall noa bad flick after all.

I was not familiar with the play (though I like it now), but it's nice to see the same modernizing that happens with Shakespeare being applied to other authors of that period. If this movie had a better budget, and wasn't so obviously the product of early digital video, it would be significantly better. As it stands though, the adaptation appears pretty decent (to someone unfamiliar with the original play). I certainly enjoyed myself. I would check out other Middleton adaptations on the strength of this.
Alicia A (es) wrote: An unusual movie depicting the abject poverty and sad history of neglect on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation. A strong bond between brothers one a law enforcement officer the other an alcoholic. An unforfortuate act of vigilantism by one brother negatively impacts the other. Many native actors will be recognized from various movie and/or television roles.
