The first half of this movie is perfect. The second half turns into a great war movie but can't quite live up to the first half. R. Lee Ermey (RIP) steals the show. He plays one hell of a drill sergeant. Vincent D'Onofrio is fantastic too. The war half feels gritty and real. I love the music but they are a little cliche.

Although ostensibly following Modine's character, Kubrick's detached style makes it difficult to care about him or any of the principal characters. Instead, the characters exist to serve a series of vignettes detailing the nature of war and the cost to the soldiers that are trained. This could be any war - substitute the jungle for the desert and you could also have the Iraq war. There are some memorable moments in this film which also feel disturbingly horrific and beautiful at the same time - the reveal of an enemy sniper, D'Onofrio's greeting in the bathroom, and the final shots of soldiers walking through a burning city - but then Kubrick certainly knows how to frame a shot. The occasional voiceover from Modine, however, feels completely unnecessary.

After the bootcamp training it felt like the movie was just another war movie... I hate this Joker, a real forgetable character he turned out to be

The first half of movie feels like a completely different movie, would rate a 10 if it wasn't the other half part of it, the other half its just a typical war movie. This is a 8 and half star movie, would watch again if they realese the 4K version.

The Marine's don't want robots - they want killers.

This is the journey undertaken by Private "Joker" J.T. Davis, from brutal training camp to Vietnam itself.

As most people know by now, Full Metal Jacket is divided very much into two different halves, halves that to me show the best and worst More

Released in 1986, Full Metal Jacket is Stanley Kubrick's film about Vietnam, adapted from a novel by the reclusive and bitter Vietnam veteran Gustav Harford, and then further expanded by acclaimed Vietnam journalist Michael Herr.

The film breaks down neatly into two very different parts, t More

**The second half is better than the first half.**

A film of two halves.

The first half of the fiim focuses on the training of raw recruits and features shenanigans we have seen countless times before - think _Stripes_ and _Police Academy_.

The persecution of the fat guy - a scenario we ha More
