Whether you find yourself caught up in this harrowing war drama depends upon whether you accept its implausible premises: first, that a Vietnam War medic (Ulrich) could succeed in flying his girlfriend (Cates) to a jungle outpost; second, that the lady would become so fascinated by the carnage around her that she’d begin accompanying Green Berets on ambushes. Believe in A Soldier’s Sweetheart, and you’re in for a heartbreaking loss-of-innocence tale; resist, as I did, and the whole thing seems at best intriguingly abstract. C+
