Quick Summary:
Awesome movie that show's every aspect of what war is like. Great performances by everyone.
Lot's of tension in particular scenes and I like the lack of music because it really adds to the atmosphere of the environment.
A few characters feel cliche. That's my only complaint.
Pick it up! Great stuff.

Better than Kubrik's Full Metal Jacket but not as good as The Deer Hunter. The character development is not as good as in The Deer Hunter so you don't get to know the individuals as well. Berenger and Dafoe give strong performances outshining Charlie Sheen who proves again that he is not the actor his Dad was. But a great movie well worth having in your collection. Violent and graphic in parts, moving and thoughtful in others.

This edition is wayyyy better then the previous edition. There are plenty of special features; it should keep any war film fanatic occupied. If you are just interested in a quick watch though get the much cheaper single disc. The movie itself is way better then hamburger hill or apocalypse now, so I highly recommend seeing this one. It will not disappoint.

"Only the dead have seen the end of war" Plato once said, and this film offers a searing truth about war, in particular the war in Vietnam that people should see.

Platoon offers an anti-war statement that I feel rings much truer then Full Metal Jacket or Hamburger Hill. It portrays the violence without celebrating it in the least. Platoon shows you what war really does; lives are lost, but so is innocence, and in Platoon we see young men who think they are helping there country, when they are really destroying themselves. I sat there shocked as the soldiers massacre a village of innocent civilians, and images of that scene still haunt me today. It is shocking, but it isn't gratuitous; it shows you what violence really is. Ugly and distasteful, harmful to the persecuted and the persecutor.

I didn't know that a film could be made that didn't glorify war, but Platoon does this and much more. The only comparable anti-war film in my eyes is All Quiet on the Western front. Neither of these films will ever grow dated, and they remain the truest and most real depictions of the ugliness of war.

This is the best war film ever. It is a lot better than Apocalypse Now which is overrated. Platoon is more ralistic and entertaining and Apocalyspse Now is on for to long.
