Interesting take
7 December 2000 | by rafaelc378See all my reviews

Of all the short stories from Tim O'Brien's book, "The Things They Carried", why did they pick this one? I could have picked better ones to put on the silver screen.

Otherwise, it did a good job, on the surface, of telling the story. But it seemed (to me, who has read the book) to unnecessarily drag on.

And what's up with the last scene? (Although I saw it coming for miles)

Another example of a good book turned into a mediocre movie
