I never understood the acclaim this movie got. I tried watching this at differant times in my life thinking i might see or understand something that will make me agree with the reviewers must be into boring movies. The wedding the movie starts with and goes on forever had nothing at all to make that part of the of movie even remotely interesting.
The next part is the guys deer hunting. Again nothing interesting. Maybe the directer wants us get an idea of the characters which i would understand if any character in the movie was interesting.
Then the only part of the movie which isnt long to class it as war movie is amazing. Robert Denero shows us why he's the best actor of all time. If they all died playing russian roulette and ended the movie at that point i wouldnt have had to suffer more endless depressing boring characters saying (in my opinion) nothing.
This movie got an oscar and critical aclaim for one reason.It had an amazing who are loved by the movie world. If i was a proffesional critic back then and wrote my honest opinion like i am now i would be fired and destroyed.
All you peaple who say this movie is one the best, think this cos all the top peaple Hollywood who we respect said it. OH. If they said its good i bet alot you agreed before even watching.
Im not saying this to be harsh.I'm just been honest. I know most of you wont agree with because youve probaly told to many peaple you think its an amazing movie.
The vietnam scenes are amazing but such a tiny part of the movie.
Please prove me wrong and give one reason you think this movie is great ?
And dont mention the war part which i agree was very powerful an amazing acting.
If you havent seen this movie. Sooner or later someone will tell you its amazing. Dont believe them and dont waste 3 hrs of your life by watching it.
An amazing cast of actors doesnt guarentee an amazing movie.
