    I definitely don't think its the final word on war films, and I think it thinks a little more highly of itself than I do, but a lot of it really works mainly because of who is at the helm. It sucks you in with its roll on the floor black comedy and then pulls the rug right out from under you with its realism. One of the better films in the latter half of Kubricks career.

    A brilliant first half gets off-set somewhat by a rather normal second half that feels disjointed and aimless by comparison. Good and recommended, but not Kubrick's best offering.

    About dehumanization, indifference and perils of obedience.

    Massa poder conferir no cinema a transformação dos garotos nas máquinas de matar psicóticas e a produção absurdamente real da guerra do Vietnã na metade final. Kubrick soube como ninguém alfinetar a política bélica americana sem nunca se aproximar do proselitismo chato.

    This is the third film from Stanley Kubrick I have the pleasure to see in theaters and one that was really in need for a rewatch. Full Metal Jacket is certainly a riveting and powerful war film where the director examines how brutal war can be to the point of having dehumanizing effects among the recruits. I found the boot camp segment to be more compelling and the way Kubrick builds up the suspense is fascinating. Also, the humor is…

    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. Privates Joker and Rafterman go out into the field to…

    This film is still great to this day, even if it falls off in the second half a bit.

    R. Lee Ermey's part as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman was truly hilarious and real feeling. At times you feel like you are actually the one being screamed at and not Gomer Pyle.
