Product Overview

Get ready for some of the greatest dramatic retellings of life in the ranks with the Heroes Of War Collection: Soldier's Stories! This 4-Pack DVD set includes the films MEN OF HONOR: SPECIAL EDITION, COURAGE UNDER FIRE, TIGERLAND & THE THIN RED LINE.

MEN OF HONOR: Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Robert De Niro "deliver powerhouse performances" (Chicago Tribune) in this triumphant epic inspired by the life of Carl Brashear. MEN OF HONOR tells the courageous tale of an African-American sailor (Gooding) who dared to dream of becoming a U.S. Navy Master Diver. Despite a ruthless training officer (De Niro) and a tragic shipboard accident, Carl's iron will is never broken. Against all odds, he pushes on to achieve the impossible in an incredible finish that will leave you cheering.

COURAGE UNDER FIRE: When Lt. Colonel Nathaniel Serling (Denzel Washington) is asked to review the postumous candidacy of the first woman (Meg Ryan) to receive a Medal of Honor, he finds himself plunged into an apparent cover-up surrounding the actions that led to her death. As he struggles to uncover the truth, he also finds himself forced to confront his own tormenting demons. Matt Damon co-stars in this powerful and provocative drama.

TIGERLAND: Just released from the base stockade, recruit Roland Bozz (Farrell) joins a platoon of young soldiers preparing to ship out to Vietnam. Bozz's independence and outright defiance draws fire from his own men as well as commanding officers. But when the platoon is sent to TIGERLAND, a hellish training ground that is the last stop before Vietnam, Bozz's leadership and loyalty brings his men together - triggering extraordinary consequences. Hot newcomer Colin Farrell delivers a "star-making performance" - (ABC TV) and is a winner of the Best Actor Award from the Boston Society of Film Critics in this riveting action film from acclaimed director Joel Schumacher.

THE THIN RED LINE: A powerful frontline cast - combining Hollywood's biggest names with its newest young stars - explodes into action as a U.S. infantry unit battles for control on Guadalcanal in this hauntingly realistic view of military and moral chaos in the Pacific during World War II. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director (Terrence Malick), THE THIN RED LINE is an unparalleled cinematic masterpiece that Gene Siskel called "brilliant... a terrific achievement...the finest contemporary war film!"

Review [Tiger] Who would have thought director Joel Schumacher - purveyor of such big-budget, glossy pulp as Batman Forever and Dying Young, would have been able to pull of this unexpected delight of a movie?Shot on digital video, which lends it a suitably grainy, documentary quality, Tigerland is set in Louisiana in 1971 at a boot camp preparing young Americans for Vietnam...Despite his usual ability to spend more time on set design than he does on actors, Schumacher handles the more intimate setting with great skill, aided by some great acting, deft cinematography from Darren Aronofsky's cohort Matthew Libatique, and a phenomenally charismatic central performance by unknown Irishman Colin Farrell.

Review [Courage] Denzel Washington, whom Zwick directed to an Oscar in Glory, is in top form here, essaying a tormented man with a noble heart who's caught in a vortex of political and emotional turmoil. Meg Ryan, aiming to break away from her reputation as a romantic comedy leading lady, uses this opportunity to attempt more demanding, dramatic acting...the campaigns of Courage Under Fire that leave the deepest impression aren't those involving ground troops and air cover. Rather, they're the deeper, more personal struggles of Nat Serling as he sifts through the war-ravaged elements of the human spirit for that "one little piece of shining something for people to believe in." Courage Under Fire is as profound and intelligent as it is moving, and that makes this memorable motion picture one of 1996's best.

Review [Men] Cuba Gooding Jr. is the kind of actor who bubbles even when he's idling. That kind of energy wouldn't be appropriate here, and he dials down and delivers a strong, convincing performance. The secret of Brashear's success is not complicated: He won't give up, he won't go away and eventually his very presence shames Navy men who cannot deny his ability...This is the second feature by George Tillman Jr., whose Soul Food was a success in 1997. Here he depends on a strong story and solid performances, and avoids unnecessary flash; the movie sells itself.
