Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The opening, with the whirling sound of choppers intercut with Willard sweating angst in his Saigon hotel bed, a jungle burning with napalm...remains a visual and aural wonder. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 13, 2008

Fresh: Alternately a brilliant and bizarre film, Francis Coppola's four year 'work in progress' offers the definitive validation to the old saw, 'war is hell.' – Dale Pollock, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: ...the movie still has the power to floor you with its stunning sounds and imagery. – Paul Tatara,, Jul 2, 2007

Fresh: Apocalypse Now is a mixed bag, a product of excess and ambition, hatched in agony and redeemed by shards of brilliance. – Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 2, 2007

The Greatest War Movie of All Time

What can I say that hasn't been said already. Apocalypse Now is a masterpiece. From the acting, to the story telling, the cinematography, the action scenes and the quote "I love the smell of napalm in the morning", it is a landmark in cinematic achievements. Marlon Brando gives one of the most haunting performences with the little screen time he has, and so does Robert Duvall. And Martin Sheen does a fantastic job as well (Charlie Sheen followed in his dad's footsteps when he starred in Platoon). Anyone who hasn't seen this movie needs to spend the $15.00 or $20.00 in HD and watch it, if Francis Ford Coppola hadn't made The Godfather then Apcalypse Now would be his masterpiece because there is no other war film like this. Sorry but Saving Private Ryan or Platoon don't even come close. But that is my opinion.


one of the best movies ever made, but you should put up the redux extended version on here with itunes extra and i would love you apple, please do that for this awsome movie. If you agree like this!!!!!!!!!!!
