Sunday Cinema – “Platoon Leader”

One of the films riding the “Platoon” wave of Vietnam-era war movies of the late-1980’s, “Platoon Leader” seems to hold its own rather than being a poor man’s version of Oliver Stone’s riveting film. Directed by Aaron Norris (Chuck Norris’ brother) and starring Michael Dudikoff (of the “American Ninja” series of films), “Platoon Leader” follows a naive West Point graduate as he takes his first command post in Vietnam. He is injured but later returns a hardened leader respected by both his men & his superiors.
