"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

Platoon es hasta ahora uno de los mejores ejemplo que he visto en el cine en cuanto a el tratar el tema de la guerra se refiere. Para comenzar diré que la dirección está bien. Podríamos decir que el trabajo cinematográfico se encarga bien de producir al espectador esa sensación de inmersión y poder así meterlo más con lo que está ocurriendo en la película.

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

“Platoon es hasta ahora uno de los mejores ejemplo que he visto en el cine en cuanto a el tratar el tema de la guerra se refiere.

Para comenzar diré que la dirección está bien.

Podríamos decir que el trabajo cinematográfico se encarga bien de producir al espectador esa sensación de inmersión y poder así meterlo más con lo que está ocurriendo en la película. Los sonidos de los lugares en los que se libran las batallas, las espectaculares actuaciones, la escenografía entre otros aspectos son los que hacen a la ambientación tan funcional y consiguen hacer sentir todo muy real, tenso y hasta entretenido (porque no, esta no es una película que aburra aún con su peso sustancial). Y es que las batallas de los pelotones están llenas de tensión puesto que las sit” read more
