THE PENTAGON WARS (Television Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

The Pentagon Wars—classic film about the Bradley tank tests and production—produces an exceptionally comical view of how military tests run and what happens when people in command are more interested in financial gain than in people and their safety. The script is very well-written, but not well acted.

Storyline

Congress appoints a representative to examine the costs and time for developing several military products to include the Bradley tank.
