Synopsis >

Full Metal Jacket joins The Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now and Platoon on the frontline of powerful films about the Vietnam War. Cinematic genius Stanley Kubrick (A Clockwork Orange, The Shining), awarded Best Director by the London Film Critics Circle, traces a young Marine's (Matthew Modine, Pacific Heights, And the Band Played On) odyssey from dehumanizing boot camp to the bloody terror of the Tet Offensive. Co-starring Vincent D'Onofrio (The Player), Arliss Howard (Tequila Sunrise), Adam Baldwin (Serenity), Dorian Harewood (Pacific Heights) and adding true grit to the Marines' basic training, a powerhouse performance by real-life former drill instructor R. Lee Ermey (the Toy Story movies). Adapted from Gustav Hasford's story The Short Timers by Hasford, Michael Herr and Kubrick.
