    Thats because he is a good actor and did his job really well, its also one of the better war films of its time, remember compared to the US contribution of Boys from Company C its years ahead, Platoon, hamburger hill and full mental spastic didnt come out for a couple of years to remind us of the US war contribution. years ahead of Rambo
    I like it because of 2 things, it was and still is a classic non hollywood way of portraying war from the ground without gung ho and self introspective 1000 yard stare navel gazing which also made it fairly humorous to a 1980's squaddie, and finally because it was the only decent war flic in English at SKC Munster in 1983/4 and therefore worth watching each weekend!
    You can see a whole host of late 80's oz soap actors in the film.

    even a remf was farther into battle than I would have been.
