Two great flicks

These really are good movies, it just sucks that they're under one roof. If Full Metal Jacket was somehow a two-part film, it would be a masterpiece. Now after about 50 minutes we cut from one great film to another great film, with no common theme or development. It's obvious that the focus of the training segment is Pyle, even if Joker is the main character. The loss of this focus when the war se... read more

Along with Platoon, this has to be one of the best Vietnam war films around. Starting at the training camp, FMJ follows a Vietnam-bound squad through training at the hands of one of the most recognisable and memorable characters in film history - played by R. Lee Ermey. His rants are the stuff of legend, and out of anything in this film, his character will probably make the most lasting impression... read more

''The deadliest weapon in the world is a marine and his rifle. It is your killer instinct which must be harnessed if you expect to survive in combat. Your rifle is only a tool. It is a hard heart that kills. If your killer instincts are not clean and strong you will hesitate at the moment of truth. You will not kill. You will become dead marines and then you will be in a world of shit because mari... read more

A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow Marine recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting set in 1968 in Hue, Vietnam.

CheoFuenmayor posted a review 1 month, 2 weeks ago

“Me gusta mucho el enfoque que le dieron al ejército de Estados Unidos en esta cinta, ya que contrario a lo que normalmente se plasma en los medios, aquí no se busca realzar a los militares como héroes ni se pinta el nacionalismo como un valor escencial, sino que se refleja la vida de los soldados como simples seres humanos que arriesgan sus vidas por causas que no entienden. Si tomamos en cuenta que esta película se realizó en los años 80's y que además es un pilar fundamental en lo que la cultura entiende como entrenamiento militar se hace especialmente interesante de ver, se la recomiendo especialmente a las personas que no crean mucho en la política, a quiénes tengan el nacionalismo como un valor importante y a curiosos del séptimo arte.” read more

9 Movies Every Marine Needs To Watch (9 movies items)

"Plot: A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the U.S.-Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue. Reason to watch: "Full Metal Jacket" is really two films in one, with act one depicting a realistic look at Vietnam-era boot camp, and act two showing life for Marines in the battle of Hue City. The performance Marines love — and can perfectly quote — comes from R. Lee Ermey, who plays Drill Instructor Gunn"

"The opening head-shaving scene doesn't set the tone for an intense film where the training (first half of the film) is just as brutal as the Vietnam War itself (second half of the film.) "
