UNCOMMON VALOR (Theatrical Release USA 1983)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Uncommon Valor—outstanding action—tells an unusual story of how one man’s vision forms a team from disparate backgrounds into one cohesive unit fighting with common purpose and direction. The tension, action, and realism of this movie are irreproachable. It uses the talents of Gene Hackman, Patrick Swayze, and Fred Ward to tell an incredible story of courage. The film stands at 39 years of age as of 2022 and is completely viable as an over-the-top WOW! war movie that completely captivates audience attention with its edge of the seat presentation. No lack here in entertainment value.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The movie performs as an over-the-top action thriller and presents an exceptionally realistic story. Watch for Jane Kaczmarek (from the 2000 to 2006 television show Malcolm in the Middle).
