Tom Cruise delivers a riveting and unforgettable portrayal of Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic in Oliver Stone's Academy Award®-winning masterpiece. Based on a true story, the acclaimed film follows the young Kovic from a zealous teen who eagerly volunteers for the Vietnam War, to an embittered veteran paralyzed from the mid-chest down. Deeply in love with his country, Kovic returned to an environment vastly different from the one he left, and struggled before emerging as a brave new voice for the disenchanted.
Worth buying DVD!
This is the most emotional War movie out there, although it doesn't over do it. It will delight and terrify. This surpasses Oliver Stone's previous vietnam movie 'Platoon'. Born on the Fourth of July is truly memorizing, John Williams score is one of his best and will stick with you as much as his 'Star Wars' and 'Superman' scores'. This movie is seriously underrated.
Great Cruise Movie
Mr Cruise you should have won an oscar, a superb performance with perhaps at the time was your best acting so far, well worth watching, a gritty film by an excellent director Oliver Stone
