I was reminded of Hackman's comment in Night Moves that watching a Rohmer film was like watching paint dry - although in this case, it's more like watching blood coagulate.
A straightforward, surprisingly somber picture that sticks to the facts.
An unsatisfactory mix of low-key heroics, buddy-buddy humour, and anti-war sentiment ..
The film has a solid, simple story, an effective cast and a fair amount of grit.
"BAT*21" is the kind of lean, no-nonsense war film Hollywood used to make back before the subject became burdened with metaphysical insights.
It's smart, but not too smart, like a Chuck Norris movie if Chuck got a PhD.
Bat 21 belongs to Hackman and Glover, and director Markle has the good sense to let these two veterans take over the show.
Faithful adaptation of the book.
Enjoyable Vietnam War actioner with a good dynamic between Hackman and Glover.
A good story overwhelmed by routine filmmaking.
Great chemistry between Glover and Hackman highlight this intense little war flick.
"Bat 21" is an exciting thriller about survival. And it also manages to say something about the victims of war, and how distance makes the difference to the soldier.
I saw this when a friend let me watch some burnt dvd's he had. I noticed it said "Gene Hackman" and "Danny Glover", so I put "Bat 21" in my DVD player.
I was in for a major suprise. An unheard of Movie Special!
This film is so AMAZING. I have underestimated myself, and have learned to give some unheard of movies a try. This film is sheer Moviegoing-Bliss. Pure Action-War Entertainment.
An ok film about a man trapped behind enemy lines in the vietnam war with a good cast.
Bog standard militaristic flagwaving from Hollywood, as the two stars run around behind enemy lines while spouting golf terms through a walkie talkie. Hackman keeps it bearable; the only poignant moment is when he actually sees the results of his orders in human cost on the ground. But that's of course quickly glossed over to get back to the gung ho action. Brainless.
Incredible true war story of the backroom bigwig in uniform shot down behind enemy lines, and the black pilot trying to get him out.
