A superb Vietnam war film packed with characters you might not traditionally associate with the soldier's role. Watching this film through again today, you see a handful of actors who went off on to bigger and better things, including a blink-and-you-miss-him cameo from Johnny Depp. The story-line is memorable and haunting. I remember the scene where the American GI's invade a small Viatnamese vil... read more

"Are you smoking this shit so's to escape from reality? Me, I don't need this shit. I am reality. There's the way it ought to be, and there's the way it is. Elias was full of shit. Elias was a crusader. Now, I got no fight... with any man who does what he's told. But when he don't, the machine breaks down. And when the machine breaks down, we break down. And I ain't gonna allow that... in any of y... read more

In my opinion, it is pure and simply the best movie about the Vietnam war. It might even be my favorite war movie. I mean, there are some other pretty good movies about the Vietnam war, like ‘Full Metal Jacket’ for example, but this flick is just way better than the rest in my opinion. The making-off was already the stuff of legend. Indeed, the actors spent 2 weeks in a boot camp to get into t... read more

"01.12. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Oliver Stone The only one of the Big Four of Vietnam War films I hadn't seen; I guess because I had a hunch it would be as mediocre it was. The message of the movie is that USA would've won the war if Willem Dafoe was sent to fight it alone. "

" As director Oliver Stone participated in Vietnam - it is an authentic and realistic war movie. Great ensemble with Tom Berenger in his most memorable and sadistic role stealing the film, but it is Willem Dafoe who has the most memorable scene."
