Going Back (2001)

Going Back (Released on DVD in the United States under the title Under Heavy Fire) is a 2001 war drama starring Casper Van Dien as Capt. Ramsey, a Vietnam War veteran and former Marine C.O of Echo Company who returns to Vietnam with several of his former E Company Marines to film a TV documentary about their reunion. During the reunion, tensions began to rise as the men of E Company blame Ramsey for a friendly fire incident that resulted in the deaths of several Marines. As the men revisit old battlefields, the events leading up to the day in question are shown in a series of flashbacks. The film co-starred Jaimz Woolvett, Bobby Hosea, Pablo Espinosa and Kenny Johnson, and was directed by Sidney J. Furie, who had previously directed the Vietnam War-themed films as The Boys in Company C and Purple Hearts. Sidney J. Furie would later direct a quasi-sequel, 2006's The Veteran, which also co-stars Bobby Hosea and utilized footage from this film.

The following weapons were used in the film Going Back:



The main weapon used by the U.S. Marines of Echo Company, including Capt. Ramsey (Casper Van Dien), Tex Atkins (Jaimz Woolvett), Eric Aimes (Daniel Kash), Chico Spaceman (Pablo Espinosa), Gunnery Sergeant. 'Gunny' Bailey (Jim Morse), Chicago (Mark Williams) and 'Top' Taylor (Lance Glass Green), is the M16A1. The rifles in the film notably have the round forward button of the M16A2 rather than the correct teardrop-shaped button.

M16A1 with 20 round magazine - 5.56x45mm. What distinguishes it from the original M16 was the addition of a raised rib around the magazine release button, changing of the forward Receiver pins, and the addition of the forward assist button on the upper receiver.
