One of the great aspects of this film is that we see the wonderful (though surely wrong) concept of sovereign states and how they relate to each other, the way in which the "pillars" of different states relate to each other and the way in which there is a tendency to balk at going through the motions. While this could be an excellent film on its own it is so well-told and nuanced that there is no real need for a sequel. So we go into the sequel. Unfortunately, there are a number of things that are far from convincing. This would have been a much better film if the title had been "Battle for Vietnam", but "Battle for Wartime" is simply a misnomer as well. Again, the film doesn't attempt to give a clear picture of what the Vietnamese actually wanted, and it is very hard to tell what exactly is going on with the Vietnamese themselves when they go to the US to present their demands. It just doesn't happen as well as it could. One thing that is pretty interesting is that while they have been so busy and successful in turning this into a "star vehicle" for everyone involved in it, the script is very dull and just shows a lack of imagination on the part of the writer. While I thought the acting was okay overall, there are only a few memorable scenes. The Vietnamese are portrayed as being mostly immoral and corrupt, and the US is portrayed as being mostly altruistic and kind. Both of these characters could have done a lot better, but I suppose this is what was needed for the American audience. Overall, the story is told very well, but not much else. As it is, it is hard to get excited about what is happening. All that said, this is one of the best war films out there, and while it has been made for American audiences in this case, it should be for anyone interested in how conflicts should be resolved.
