We Were Soldiers

We Were Soldiers (2001) - a Vietnam War drama, based on the true story of how the new "helicopter soldiers" (of the US Air Cavalry) were introduced into modern combat during America's first battle against NVA troops. Except for the unconvincing digital effects of jets dropping napalm bombs, the airborne scenes are excellent, with good use of Bell UH-1 Hueys to land a regiment in the Ia Drang valley.
