    A good film, which contains an interesting underlying political narrative of the American takeover of the European colonial empires. 8 years 10 months ago

    I love the book and the movie definitely captured some of the general atmosphere and is in parts very interesting. Michael Caine, the Indochina war, his love affair - all that's great

    In other parts it's horribly uninspired and formulaic. We hit the story beats from the book and it feels like checking boxes. Also the camera work was more than distracting - is there a point I missed to all the flat shots and people constantly talking directly into the camera and handing looking at the audience?

    Overall ... ok. Somewhere between C and C+
