Maybe not the best Vietnam film, but it's definitely up there. Berenger is almost a one man show, just incredible.

Decent war film, fairly well-directed but feels contrived in parts. Sheen is fine.

In typical Oliver Stone fashion, It didn't feel like you were watching one complete movie but more like watching an hour of two different ones. The story didn't blend well with the action scenes.

It basically shows you what war really is and what it can do with people involved in it. Not only that, it also shows how the worst of the characters come out in those situations and you see people for what they really are. Expand

Platoon is a powerful war film starring Charlie Sheen and Willem DeFoe. A film that depicts the best and worst of humanity Platoon is also an excellent action film. 10/10 from me.

Platoon

Embracing and projecting the vulnerability, jealous and empathy Platoon is a fast paced character driven feature that has merely an idea on which it walks for 2 hours but gets in deep with the characters and explores more than expected. Writer-Director Oliver Stone captures some raw brutal scenes and attempts in empowering the characters through it, creating a perfect arc for the plot line but fails to ask for attention and offer gripping screenplay to the audience. Charlie Sheen seems a bit unsuitable for his protagonist role and doesn't quite justify its character whilst Willem Dafoe breathes life into the character and is outstanding as a supporting cast. Platoon takes big leaps on its first act and slows down on its second one until which the track becomes predictable on its climatic sequence.

전투의 액션에만 치중하지 않으면서 전쟁이라는 상황속의 다양한 인간성들을 생생하게 묘사해 낸 영화이다. 캐릭터 각자의 개성과 행동에 대해서도 합리적인 근거로 납득할 수 있게 해주는 완성도 있는 작품.전투의 액션에만 치중하지 않으면서 전쟁이라는 상황속의 다양한 인간성들을 생생하게 묘사해 낸 영화이다. 캐릭터 각자의 개성과 행동에 대해서도 합리적인 근거로 납득할 수 있게 해주는 완성도 있는 작품.

Pretty violent and bad language is present. Fairly decent story with some dumb characters, some likeable and the unlikeable Tom Berenger but what Platoon does throughout the dead bodies, bloodshed and violence is portray a fairly decent story and a reasonably powerful film. Charlie Sheen's acting is the best in the movie for me and this film displays an excellent level of betrayal but also courage. Expand
