Winner* of 4 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, and based on the first-hand experience of Oscar®-winning director Oliver Stone, Platoon is powerful, intense and starkly brutal. "Harrowingly realistic and completely convincing" (Leonard Maltin), it is "a dark, unforgettable memorial" (The Washington Post) to every soldier whose innocence was lost in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) is a young, naive American who, upon his arrival in Vietnam, quickly discovers that he must do battle not only with the Viet Cong, but also with the gnawing fear, physical exhaustion and intense anger growing within him. While his two commanding officers (Oscar®-nominated Tom Berenger and Willem Dafoe) draw a fine line between the war they wage against the enemy and the one they fight with each other, the conflict, chaos and hatred permeate Taylor, suffocating his realities and numbing his feelings to man's highest value life.

The cinematography was compelling and a huge part of the success of the story telling.
Rather than too political a message I think this movie is meant to be a lesson, that sadly, because people are so entrenched in their world view, they will not understand or listen to.
War is hell and the Vietnam war was futile and soul shattering for the participants and the USA.
Thank you again Oliver Stone for a dedication to SO MANY who lost their lives,limbs,mind and so much more over there,plus THEIR YOUTH. God bless all of the men and women who are Vets and might be reading this. I cried many tears for your bravery and prayed and prayed for all of you. " God bless America and our fine men and women in our Armed Services.
