Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dark, riveting and uncompromising... Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" is so violent, visceral and uncompromising as a depiction of a war movie, it could make you ill. Makes Oliver Stone's "Platoon" look like a walk in the park. Starring Matthew Modine ("Birdy", "Memphis Belle") among many others, Kubrick's war movie is so full of fury and rage, it poses the question: is military training really like this? If the answer is yes, as the movie suggests it is; then military training is truly frightening. See this, but only for discerning adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gung Ho Warrie This is an excellent war movie that doesn't seem to pull any punches. I particularly liked the first part, when Joker and his friends are being trained at Parris Island. Very realistic. When I was in recruit training in the Australian Army, we heard stories about "Blanket Bashings" as protrayed in this movie. I loved the scene with Vietnamese Hooker. "You handsome man, I love you long time". The exterior scenes set in Vietnam, seemed very realistic, considering this part of the movie was shot in Spain!! Excellent Movie - go out and buy it!
