A intense drama examining the fight between good and evil among an American infantry platoon in the jungles of Vietnam. Harrowingly realistic and completely convincing, it is a dark, unforgettable memorial to every soldier whose innocence was lost in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. Writer/director Stone draws on his own first-hand experiences of combat and takes a close look at the life of foot soldiers, as seen through the eyes of a new recruit.

Very possibly the most realistic war movie ever made. It strips the romance from going to war and emphasises the confusion of being a "grunt" stumbling around the battlefield. Along with Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now, these movies make up a complete vision of war. Platoon should be showed be compulsory viewing for all schoolkids as an antidote to Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal and John Wayne.
