I'd lean towards the Shout! Charlie Sheen plays the lead, and Willem Defoe and Tom Berenger play the two sergeants that form a key part of the plot. Platoon is about the two surrogate fathers that come to define Taylor's time in Vietnam and who mold him into an experienced combat soldier. Chris wonders what he's gotten himself into. Many great war films of the Vietnam conflict are centered around these themes of blurred morality and the uselessness of war, and Oliver Stone's Platoon is among the most well known. He is brutal and ruthless but he makes us support him in a strange way.
The cast is rounded out with many characters, all well played, and adding another dimension to the film. Stone succeeds brilliantly at putting the viewer into the middle of it all, and it's not a pretty sigh and definitely not for the squeamish, either. It makes for an uncomfortable film but one that's worth watching. Synopsis Chris Taylor is a young, naive American who gives up college and volunteers for combat in Vietnam. One such young man is Chris Taylor. The basic story not only shows us what the war was like for those serving but also how the different personalities come out of those involved in it.
In other words, different versions of the same melodic line are going on at once. The shooting is frantic and impossible to follow. Spoken dialogue on the Shout! There was a ghost scene, but it wasn't done very well. Upon arrival, he quickly discovers that his presence is quite nonessential, and is considered insignificant to the other soldiers, as he has not fought for as long as the rest of them and felt the effects of combat. He has compassion for his fellow man, and he uses drugs as a form of escapism from this brutal war. It's also an added bonus to have the original 2.
On the other hand, if you want great acting, it's here. Much accolades to Tom Berenger as well, whose performance as Sgt. Look at how dark it is in 26 contrasted with the light on Taylor and Bunny Kevin Dillon in 27. Willem Dafoe is a great actor and here is no different he also gives us one of the film's most enduring images so I'm a little biased. Although pretty unknown and a few years away from fame, he turned it down because he didn't want to disrespect his brother, who was a Vietnam veteran. As the war continues, Chris himself draws towards psychological meltdown.
Platoon is a must see for any fan of war movies. The most stunning peripheral aspect of this film, however, is the music. This means that an Allegro in B minor is succeeded by B-flat minor. Platoon focuses on the moral decay of soldiers in American units, and how this contributes to their inability to fight their Vietnamese enemies. The final firefight sounds utterly spectacular with the satellite speakers given their most activity than at any other moment in the film. If there's one other flaw to an otherwise impeccable war film, it's the aforementioned scene where Taylor has to stay awake because Junior Reggie Johnson has dozed off during his mandatory nightwatch. Upon arrival, he quickly discovers that his presence is quite nonessential, and is considered insignificant to the other soldiers, as he has not fought for as long as the rest of them and felt the effects of combat.
Stone's historical docudramas have compelled me to read the literary works that they're based upon and conduct further research on each subject's subtopics. Eventually, this became a senior thesis project on Salvador and Platoon. On the Shout, check out the detail on Taylor's face 1 and the several scars on Barnes 12. C'est vraiment spectaculaire et peut même un type de rare génial. Much accolades to Tom Berenger as well, whose performance as Sgt. Oliver Stone perfectly captures war.
Chris has two non-commissioned officers, the ill-tempered and indestructible Staff Sergeant Robert Barnes and the more pleasant and cooperative Sergeant Elias Grodin. Grain makes its presence known in shots of the sky see around the lightning bolt in 13. Chris, issu d'une famille bourgeoise s'est engagé volontairement et, plein d'idéal entend bien servir son pays. Nothing else can come close. Chris, issu d'une famille bourgeoise s'est engagé volontairement et, plein d'idéal entend bien servir son pays. J'ai eu l'idée de Platoon en décembre 1969 à mon retour du front. We follow the war at ground level, and see the brutalities first hand.
The inhumanity of certain soldiers, including of Sgt. We shot pretty much what we used. Don't watch this movie for the action. Stone wrote the screenplay based upon his experiences as a U. There's almost an impressionable color that haunts through the film. He is placed in a squadron where two sergeants have different approaches to the war Elias is more about surviving without being brutal or cruel, whereas Barnes is crueller, more ruthless and more violent.
