A superb ensemble falls in for 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 experience boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leatherlung D.I. (Lee Ermey) viewing would-be devil dogs as grunts, maggots or something less. The action is savage, the story unsparing, the dialogue spiked with scathing humor. From basic training rigors to Hue City combat nightmare. Full Metal Jacket scores a cinematic direct hit.

Having gone through boot camp myself, I love watching just that part of the movie. Thinking of my own time there really is similar to the occurrences in this film. It both cases, boot camp, as serious as it is, really is comedic as well.
This Blu-ray release is a remarkable upgrade from any version I have ever seen both visually and sonically. I wish there was more in the way of supplements, but what we get is good. This disc gets my highest recommendation.
