The duality of man

  • Excerpt: The movie follows a group of aspiring young men as they endure the trials of basic training in their quest to become Marines and, ultimately, soldiers in the Vietnam War. In the first half of the film, Privates Joker and Pyle struggle through the mentally and physically tiring stresses which are intensified by the strict guidance of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. The second half of the film is set in Vietnam.

One of the better anti-war movies.

  • Excerpt: I've said enough about Stanley Kubrick. The guy was a genius, a master of his craft and is my favorite visual director. He was crazy and not much of a treat to work with, but he made some darn good films. Full Metal Jacket is no exception. There are grandiose moments all over in this film.

  • Excerpt: The movie follows a young recruit from the boot camp to Vietnam. In this time he learns a lot and gets mean to the brutality of war and the preparation to it... Stanley Kubrick is one of my favorite directors though I only have seen a few movies of him. Some people say he has two sides: the writer and the director´, and that he is only perfect in the second one.

Full Metal Jacket

  • Excerpt: Full Metal Jacket is almost like two films wrapped into one, only I don't really mean that in a good way. The first hour is absolutely brilliant, featuring witty lines and two phenomenal performances from Vincent D'Onofrio and R. Lee Ermey. It follows a group of Marines through their journey in boot camp. The second half of the film follows the Marines as they serve in the Vietnam War. Unfortunately though, it's not as brilliant as the first part.

  • Summary: It's no surprise that a noted pacifist like Kubrick would make a film that, on its surface, seems to be an anti-war ode. Full Metal Jacket, though, is so much more - a multilayered coming of age story that touches on themes of courage, tragedy, and sacrifice, using war as a backdrop, and diving deeply and unflinchingly into its character's choices and actions.
