Posted on: June 15, 2005 | Views: 853 | Comment

This intensely realistic grunt's-eye-view of the Vietnam War was the film that put Oliver Stone on the map. Charlie Sheen stars as Chris, a green recruit who narrates a tale that counterpoints his own coming of age with the internal conflict brewing within his infantry rifle platoon. As Chris struggles simply to survive under the harsh conditions of the jungle, free spirit Sgt. Elias (Willem Dafoe) and combat-loving burnout Sgt. Barnes (Tom Berenger) offer opposing solutions to the riddle of guerrilla warfare. When a terrible betrayal fractures the platoon, Chris must decide where he stands.
