Off. Maybe an honourable failure. And there's a deeper film tic here from De Palma, one that I've mentioned before, a minor obsession of mine: that nonactors and actors can mix seamlessly because they are the same.

The blurs are hardly needed. There's no way these guys or their 'real' counterparts are uninfluenced by the Vietnam movies... For some they'll be the reason for their choice of career.

Who wouldn't act, in the middle of a war? You'd hardly want to just 'be'.
