4.5 out of 10 Full Metal Jacket
Michael from Louth, 26 Nov 2010
Although this film is a few years old now it can still beat quite a few more modern films that have all the special effects, it is a very raw edged saga about the Viatnam war and shows the director Stanley Kubrick at his very best. It manages to be both entertaining and thought provoking at the same time. Great film that you can watch over and over again, even if you have seen it before watch it again as you have probably forgotten just how good it is.

What's it about....
A superb ensemble cast falls in for action in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. Joker (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Gomer (Vincent D'Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood), Cowboy (Arliss Howard) and more - all are plunged into a boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leatherlung D.I. (Lee Ermey) who views the would-be devil dogs as grunts, maggots or something less.
