Conventional war movie about a rookie platoon on duty
in Vietnam, charged with the mission of taking the hill of the title.
A rather run-of-the-mill plot is set aside from
mundanity by good direction from John Irvin, making the film a metaphor for pointless obsession in the name of duty rather than just another standard routine flagwaver.
