Cambridge Dictionary

In 1969 The New Yorker published a detailed exposé by Daniel Lang concerning four soldiers deployed in the Phu My district of Vietnam who abducted a young woman and raped her repeatedly over the course of the next 24 hours. The following day, fearing discovery by incoming American helicopters, the sergeant in command of the squad ordered her killed.

After being denied the chance to go to a nearby village to visit a prostitute before starting a reconnaissance mission, a tough, embittered American sergeant involves the four men of his patrol in the kidnapping of a young Vietnamese woman. The impending gang rape and murder of the woman splits the patrol into two factions, those for it, and those against it with young Eriksson leading the dissension. But before long, the sergeant has convinced everyone but Eriksson to go along with the plan, making an already difficult mission unbearable for the morally conscious young soldier. Casualties of War is inspired by a true story.

Scene from the movie casualties of war

2 “Casualties of War” (1989) The Key Scene

Back to menu

22 jul. 2009
This is the climactic scene in “Casualties of War”, a 1989 film about the Vietnam War. The guy opposite Michael J. Fox here is very believable as an army officer, which isn’t surprising since he (Dale Dye) actually was a decorated Marine who served in Vietnam. Other than this scene though, I really didn’t think this was a good movie. Most of the acting isn’t very convincing.
Fox was no doubt eager here (and for the rest of his career, really) to show that he could do serious, gritty, non-Marty McFly type roles, but he still comes across as a bit too innocent and earnest. Sean Penn in particular is inexcusably hammy in way over-acting his part as the arrogant scumbag. Everyone was trying too hard and too self-consciously I think to make this an epic hardcore Vietnam movie that would earn Oscars and rank alongside “Apocalypse Now” and “Platoon”.
Brian DePalma directs, and at this point I personally am ready to say that after giving him plenty of chances, his work – other than of course “Scarface” (1983) and even “Mission Impossible” (1996) – just isn’t anything all that special.

Diaz was too weak and let peer pressure get to him, unfortunately!!!!
I watched this movie like 30 years ago and this is the only scene I can remember. I’m due for a rewatch!
Come to realize that I’ve never watched another Sean Penn film after having watched this film back in the 80s.

Rare scene , thanks

could anyone please provide the subtitles?

While I agree with Erickson and disagree with the Capt., this scene demonstrates the complexity of the world we live in, as well as the complexity of the emotions Erickson struggled with. What his squad did WAS wrong, but what are the consequences of him coming forward? Is he making himself a target by doing so? Is turning in Sgt. Messerve betraying the man that saved his life? If this results in major international backlash, is that helping the war effort? What if he doesn’t say anything? Could he live with himself if these men do something like this again? Ultimately he does the right thing, but being in this position is not easy.

4 Casualties Of War Theatrical Movie Trailer (1989)

Back to menu

“Casualties of War” is a 1989 American war drama film directed by Brian De Palma and starring Michael J. Fox and Sean Penn. The film is based on a real-life incident that occurred during the Vietnam War, in which a group of American soldiers abducted and raped a young Vietnamese woman.

Some of the key points in the film include:

  1. The portrayal of the Vietnam War: The film depicts the brutal and violent nature of the Vietnam War, as well as the psychological toll it takes on soldiers.

  2. The abduction and rape of a Vietnamese woman: The film centers around the kidnapping and rape of a young Vietnamese woman by a group of American soldiers, and the subsequent cover-up of the crime by their commanding officer.

  3. The moral dilemma faced by soldiers: The film raises questions about the ethical boundaries of war and the pressures soldiers face to conform to the group mentality of their fellow soldiers.

  4. The struggle for justice: The film follows the efforts of a soldier, played by Michael J. Fox, to bring his fellow soldiers to justice and hold them accountable for their actions.

  5. The aftermath of war: The film shows the lasting effects of the war on both the soldiers and the Vietnamese civilians, and the difficulty of coming to terms with the trauma and violence they have experienced.

Overall, “Casualties of War” is a powerful and thought-provoking film that explores the brutal realities of war and the devastating impact it has on individuals and societies.

Ethisch denken

Ethiek = de wetenschap die kritische redeneermethodes ontwikkelt om na te gaan wat goed en slecht is, rechtvaardig en onrechtvaardig, verantwoord en onverantwoord, menswaardig en mensonwaardig. Kortom: alles wat behoort tot de menselijke verantwoordelijkheid. Met als doel te zoeken naar de meest menswaardige oplossing.

The Vietnam War began in good faith, by good people with good intentions. But a combination of American overconfidence, Cold War tensions and imperialist tendencies the Americans had previously fought so hard against, made the war in Vietnam one of America’s darkest pages in its short but dense history. By the end of the war, more than 58,000 Americans would die, as too would 250,000 South Vietnamese soldiers. Over 1 million North Vietnamese soldiers and Viet Cong guerillas would also perish as well as over 2 million civilians’ from both the north and the south, and thousands more from Laos and Cambodia.
The Vietnam War brought everything into question. The rationalization of destroying villages in order to save them. America’s morality in the face of My Lai. The meaning of free-fire zones, shooting anything that moved as soldiers placed a cheapness on the lives of civilians. The falsification of body counts to increase kill death ratios. The unimportance of battle as men charged up hills because their generals told them too and after losing one platoon or two platoons they marched away to leave the hill for the enemy. Pride allowed the most unimportant battles to be blown into extravaganzas because America couldn’t lose, and she couldn’t retreat and because it didn’t matter how many lives were lost to prove that point.

I’m a huge fan of this film and noticed this short conversation with M J Fox about the film and his role in it is not available on this platform so thought I’d upload it for other fans of Michael J Fox and the film Casualties Of War itself. Please remember to like and Please also check out the other similar video I have uploaded which is a general ‘Making of Documentary’ about Casualties Of War with Brain De Palma. I do not own any of this footage and no copyright infringement is intended, all rights belong to the original producers.

Personal tribute and remembrance for the POW and MIA of the Viet Nam war. This short film and original song does not intend to be political , it is only for those nearly 2000 people still unaccounted for in SE Asia whose families and friends are still waiting and wondering where they are. Secondarily, this song goes out to every man and woman who has ever served their country, fighting for freedom and human rights for all. If there are some discrepancies with the content of the lyrics it was intentional to evoke imagery of the horrors of a war which has never brought all who served back home, regardless of the gender of the soldier. I pray that we never forget them, that we will continue to ask questions of our leaders and seek the answers so that there may finally be peace for these unaccounted heroes.
