Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: One of the characters is named [[WebVideo/RedVsBlue Private Griff]]. Doubly so since Mark Hamill would later play a character named [[VideoGame/DarkCloud Emperor GRIFFon]].

* VindicatedByHistory: Not a smashing success when released, time and a later director's cut led to this movie being considered on par with ''SavingPrivateRyan'' and ''Film/{{Patton}}'' as a great war movie.

Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: The concentration camp.]] The fact that the entire scene is almost completely wordless just makes it worse.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: LeeMarvin and the boy from the concentration camp (becomes a TearJerker moment when the boy dies in Sarge's arms). And the little girl who decorates his helmet with flowers earlier.

-->The Bangalore Torpedo was 50' long and [[MadeOfExplodium packed with 85 pounds of TNT]] and you assembled it along the way. By hand. I'd love to meet the asshole who invented it.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Several, especially with the Hitler Youth sniper's fate.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: LeeMarvin and the boy from the concentration camp (becomes a TearJerker moment when the boy dies in Sarge's arms). And the little girl who decorates his helmet with flowers earlier.

-->"I can understand you being horny Fritz, but you've got bad breath."
** Also when two soldiers are sleeping next to each other.
-->"Zeff, quit pockin' me with your rifle."
-->"That's [[OrAreYouJustHappytoSeeMe not my rifle]], Johnson."
* MoralEventHorizon: Near the end of the movie the squad stumbles upon the Falkenau concentration camp.
** Specifically [[spoiler:the pacifistic Griff finds a remaining German guard hiding in one of the crematories. Griff coldly shoots the guard, and keeps shooting even after Sarge wordlessly hands him more clips.]]
* VindicatedByHistory: Not a smashing success when released, time and a later director's cut led to this movie being considered on par with ''SavingPrivateRyan'' and ''{{Patton}}'' as a great war movie.
