A powerhouse performance by Tom Cruise - there's a reason he's a star!! Very heartbreaking but ultimately uplifting - Oliver Stone, who directed, was a also a vet, & his empathy & passion for the project shine through. A wonderful depiction of 50's through to '60's small town USA. Cinematography is fabulous - great to look at. A classic movie - must see.
A good movie recounting the vets of the vietnam war
another great tom cruise movie about a vietnam fighter then turned disabled after during the war then a spokesman of events after he came back home too the america
A very important anti-war film that showed the futility of the Vietnam war and the suffering it caused to the men who went and their families. It is a little bit shocking, but it's probably the most accurate Vietnam movie ever made alongside Platoon. Oliver Stone is the man!
shows clearly the futility of war.
Especially the Vietnam war!
very sad for the man/women that are hurt or killed on both sides...
This movie is an excellent anti-dote for the glorification of war we so often see in other movies!
Enjoyed the movie but the quality of the DVD was pathetic - blue skin tones among other thins
Brilliant! It's disturbing but reality. Well worth the watch. One of Oliver Stones best!
Not a Cruise fan but enjoyed this thought provoking movie. They could well re-release this movie in an updated version by just replacing a couple of key words ie. Communism with Terrorism and Vietnam with Iraq !
Good development of clash of values between religion and state, mother & son.
Oliver Stone gets his message across in this one of three Vietnam movies
