Based on a true story. 

We Were Soldiers is a powerful & bloody war movie based on a true story that moves at a heart-racing & ear-shattering pace!

On Sunday November 14, 1965 at 10.48am, Lt. Col. Hal Moore (a magnificent performance by Academy Award® Winner Mel Gibson) and his regiment of 400 men touch down at Landing Zone X-ray in the Ia Drang Valley, a place in Vietnam known as “The Valley of Death”. They find themselves surrounded by roughly 2,000 North Vietnamese soldiers and the ensuing battle becomes one of the most savage in US history.

Heroism, bravery, sacrifice, the butchery of battle, We Were Soldiers is a gruelling exploration of war with all its horrors, that can rightly take its place alongside war classics Apocalypse Now, Saving Private Ryan & Platoon.
