About the Film
"Full Metal Jacket" joins "The Deer Hunter," "Apocalypse Now" and "Platoon" on the frontline of powerful films about the Vietnam War. Cinematic genius Stanley Kubrick ("A Clockwork Orange," "The Shining"), awarded Best Director by the London Film Critics Circle, traces a young Marine's (Matthew Modine, "Pacific Heights," "And the Band Played On") odyssey from dehumanizing boot camp to the bloody terror of the Tet Offensive. Co-starring Vincent D'Onofrio ("The Player"), Arliss Howard ("Tequila Sunrise"), Adam Baldwin ("Serenity"), Dorian Harewood ("Pacific Heights") and adding true grit to the Marines' basic training, a powerhouse performance by real-life former drill instructor R. Lee Ermey (the "Toy Story" movies). Adapted from Gustav Hasford's story "The Short Timers" by Hasford, Michael Herr and Kubrick.
This is an excellent film! Ignore the 1 star rating because of the price, this is for rating the film not the cost. This film deserves the 5 *****
Lots of Action :D
this is a brilliant movie, the start is excelent showing off what the training can do to some people, and what it can achieve in others, its not so much we were soldiers, its more Platoon with rambo style people and one hand mg antics, and with that kind of blackhawk down feeling where the civies are out there to get you, and then its got its own style of warfare which is alot slower and more realistic when it comes to urban warfare
Please can everyone stop going on about price. YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WRITING A REVIEW. Use your intelligence.
