This film depicts the homecoming of 4 combat weary U.S. Army Green Berets. They rent a car and travel across country; meeting different people, picking up and accidentally killing a girl, watching a high school basketball game, and being totally disillusioned with coming home. The ending is similar to the Dennis Hopper film, Tracks. However, where Tracks freeze-frames to a violent ending, Welcome Home, Soldier Boys takes itself to a more graphic conclusion. The ending scene of the four blood-crazed vets freeze-framed will leave a lasting impact. Raw, brutal, down-beat, yet well-acted and intense. If you are a fan of symbolism, Joe Don Baker, and Viet-Nam era movies, this movie is a must-see.

Ratings explained: 

All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.

Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.

A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent

9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.

8 and below will be from 2nd  or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.

Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with  a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3

Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.

Every title on the site is region free so no matter where in the world you live you should have no problems playing any of our discs. Your only requirement is a DVD player capable of receiving a PAL and NTSC signal, about 99% of European players have this facility, the rest of the world check the net for compatible players.
