Full Metal Jacket 1987

From Amazon: Stanley Kubrick's 1987, penultimate film seemed to a lot of people to be contrived and out of touch with the '80s vogue for such intensely realistic portrayals of the Vietnam War as Platoon and The Deer Hunter. Certainly, Kubrick gave audiences plenty of reason to wonder why he made the film at all: essentially a two-part drama that begins on a Parris Island boot camp for rookie Marines and abruptly switches to Vietnam (actually shot on sound stages and locations near London), Full Metal Jacket comes across as a series of self-contained chapters in a story whose logical and thematic development is oblique at best....

Full Metal Jacket Movie Review by Ben (12/18/2007)

"Full Metal Jacket" was really the last great film from Kubrick before his death (with all due respect to "Eyes Wide Shut"). At the same time, it is a movie that has perplexed me as well. It always seemed to be two movies in one. The first half being the most definite version of basic training ever put on film. The second...

Full Metal Jacket Movie Review by Jarrod (8/15/2007)

When it comes to great Vietnam war movies, I tend to think of Platoon, The Deer Hunter, even Apocalypse Now, a lot of others think of Stanley Kubrick's 'Full Metal Jacket', which is gritty and compelling, but has trouble recovering once its two best and most effective characters have left the building, literally going out...

Full Metal Jacket Movie Review by Movie Addict (5/28/2007)

I love Vincent D'Onofrio. I am one of the few that think that "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" is the best of the three because of him. He is an outstanding actor, and I have seen him in many films, but this tops them all for him.

The first 45 minutes of this film is a movie unto itself as we watch the interplay between the...

Full Metal Jacket Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/9/2007)

The true grimy horrible nature of war revealed for all to see. Full Metal Jacket is an experience, one of those films you must see to be a part of the larger cinema conversation.
Vincent D'Onofrio re-defines creepy.

Full Metal Jacket Movie Review by Ezra (2/17/2007)

Spoilers ahead:

Full Metal Jacket's objective, realistic perspective reflects the point-of-view of its protagonist and narrator, Private Joker (Matthew Modine), who goes through Marine-training to become a field reporter in Vietnam. Though Joker is a much more sane and rational character than Willard, he too is deeply...
