Added depth to a movie that didn't need it...

Part of me wants to give Redux four stars, if only because the original Apocalypse Now wasn't broken. Far from it, actually. Apocalypse Now stands as one of the best movies ever made, regardless of what genre you label it and for so many reasons other than for "entertainment" alone. Redux will definitely add some depth to the story for those who have already experienced the original version, but might take away a bit of the tension for those who haven't. Some of the added/extended scenes are great, especially those involving the Playboy bunnies. When one of the bunnies asks Clean, "Who are you?" and he responds by saying, "I'm next, ma'am", it's absolutely hilarious despite the grim setting. Unfortunately, the scenes remove a great deal of the tension in Willard's methodical journey up the river, as stated earlier, if only because they, well... take time.

In short, the original Apocalypse Now was perfect (in my opinion) and Redux just adds some depth to it, although it's not necessary. Still gotta give it 5 stars though. It's Apocalypse Now, after all.

Apocalypse Now - Redux in HD

IMO, this is the best film of all time, period. I was a college student when this film premiered at a time when post-Vietnam War sentiment was extremely high and it caused me to completely change my mind about the war, and the duality in which we approached it. An entire generation has been defined/defined itself by the internal split that this film highlights through Martin Sheen's portrayal of Capt.Willard.

Horrible

Watch the original release if you want to see a great film. The editor did an excellent job of cutting the irrelevant material which makes this film disjointed. This version ruined the movie for me.
