"It's winter in the Ardennes and the Germans are hellbent to end the war on the Western Front once and for all. The Battle of the Bulge has begun and a platoon of the 2nd Infantry Division is spread out to thin to hold the German's Blitzkrieg. Will the G.I.'s survive or will they be swallowed up by the Nazi advance? This is your average low-budget, WWII reenactor flick. It's got all the weapons and uniforms pretty spot on and good ol' Berenger is great as always but everything else is amateur. Take a look at the trailer and see what ya think."

Looks good. At first I thought it was a theatrical movie, but it said VOD. I don't think my internet speed is fast enough for VOD.

Sorry, Tango. But I've taken part in airsoft games that looked more realistic than this PoS ,-)

Came out in 2018. Never heard of it. Direct to DVR?
No critic reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, but got 6% (!!) from
the public reviews.
See https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5815078

Tom Berenger is miscast. He was 69 when the film was made, far too old for anyone on active service, even a general.

That said, the equipment looks good.
Looks like they got a real Hetzer and Sdkfz 252.

I watched the DVD a couple of years ago. It's not bad for a low-budget movie similar in production value to the 'Saints and Soldiers' series.

Berenger's actually a major in the movie. Must be the oldest in the army.

So Berenger was busted down from a major in Ww2 to a sergeant in Vietnam?

Or he time-traveled back to WWII and got promoted to major after (or is it "before"?) leaving Dafoe behind to the not-so-tender mercies of the VC in 'Nam. But don't ask me how he looked older and got rid of that ugly scar.
