5.0 out of 5 stars straight out of the jungle, 12 July 2009
This review is from: Platoon - Definitive Edition [DVD] (DVD)
this film is one of the best vietnam films ever made for many reasons . the first being that the man who wrote it was actually a vietnam vet (oliver stone) and after writing memoirs of his time in vietnam he simply converted some of the story and that became Platoon. this film deals with a lot of the various issues in the US involvement in vietnam for instance racism, drugs, fragging and the importance of the countdown of the year long tour . it follows private chris taylor who has just come to vietnam after dropping out of college and volenteered for infantry for reasons explained later. it follows him in his time just struggling to do the right thing against the against the more aggresive "short timers" , it is a brilliant film which will definatly give you something to think about after watching it especaily with the awesome soundtrack (odagio for strings) which makes the film and experiance
