Is it just me, or is Vietnam starting to get silly ? I don't mean the war itself, that was horrible no doubt, but all that "everybody makes at least one movie 'bout it" kinda thing . Platoon is where it hit me, if you have seen one film that is based on Vietnam, you have more or less seen them all. All that changes is who dies, and... well , who dies. What you have is a jungle, lots of fireworks and blood to your knees. Same thing every time. Blood has no effect after seeing legs flying for hundreds of times, normal people get shocked and you just sit there with no facial expression saying: "i wonder where that arm flew of, could make a great souvenir ". That being said I wonder, do directors make these movies so that children would understand what is war and how cruel it is , or to rise their apathy level, so that they would not mind seeing their parents sliced in half by some maniac. I don't want to insult anyone, and specially not the veterans, but war is not getting horrible , it's getting boring.
Oliver Stone does make American the good guys, but not all of them. There is still room left for jerks, rapists and messed up maniacs. And I think that is great. Let's face the fact that war is not all filled with happy-go-lucky beach boys that love every innocent child. That might be the best thing in this film.

This film ? It's somewhat like every other , thou it build tension really well at some points, but that is nothing magical.Sound track is good and all.There is Johnny Depp there too, so girls can go wild now.I wanted to make a Charlie Sheen joke, but i don't think i should. Just to make things clear, movies is good, not too great. If you like this war for some reason, yeah sure it's awesome .
This trailer could be better... sheesh...
