WE WERE SOLDIERS (R) Like Black Hawk Down, this account of the 1965 battle in the Ia Drang Valley, when 400 Americans found themselves surrounded by 2,000 soldiers, centers on the inspiring mettle demonstrated by U.S. soldiers under fire. The combat scenes are extremely intense, and while some of the dialogue may clank, the sentiments don't, and a no-nonsense cast (led by Mel Gibson) offers the necessary conviction.--MB
