Yeah, I'm not sure how I missed this dystopian flick when it first came out, but it was very good, thanks to John Milius' writing. The fact that the heroes were teenagers was key; this story wouldn't have been nearly as heartfelt or novel had they been adults. Milius has contributed his writing skills to several other major projects that I've enjoyed: "Dirty Harry", "Jeremiah Johnson", "Apocalypse Now", "Conan the Barbarian"... and more recently the 2005 - 2007 well received HBO series "Rome", which I hope to find the time to check out. (And I'm almost certain I won't find the time for the current remake of this -- it smells bad)

A much better movie than the highly sanitized, politically correct newer version—and I not a fan of Swayze, mind you! I had never watched it before and was quite surprised at how much I liked this movie. Very interesting, realistic situations, some quite dramatic, some have to do with very hard choices—and by kids, which makes the choice even more thought-provoking. The kids in this movie grow up very quickly, wake up from a cuddly small town life to a harsh life of guerrillas, fighting for their country’s freedom. Quite touching and really worth watching.

saw this when I was a kid and loved the suspense. Can't wait to see it again and the new one coming out Dec. 2012

Great 80's movie. The re-make this year looks like it will be a hit!
