This is an awesome movie, I just saw it for the first time a few
minutes ago, I rate it 9/10. The intensity and action just doesn't stop
except for a few minutes as when Cowboy is struggling with Animal for a
cease-fire ... The feature is visually stunning, nice scenery, a few
"gooks" up-close and lots of weapons and war-torn buildings. There's a
wide range of emotions except for romance, hurray for realism ! You can
see tree facets of the war going from training and it's hardship to
comfy position finished by smelling blood. It's odd that they chose
Joker, a war correspondant (journalist), for a main character ; I guess
they wanted to show the hardening of a pretty normal guy instead of
just jumping in the action with a testosterone/adrenaline junkie
lusting for a kill seen in countless movies, it's more human that way..

The Lethal Camera
Even if this had no opening credits, this would be immediately
recognizable as Kubrick's work.
All of his essential war film components are here, as self reference:
the camera movement of "Paths of Glory", the 'fighting a square' and
running the gauntlet from "Barry Lyndon". There is 'Rafterman' as the
photographer (the camera operator) and 'Joker' as the writer. Modine is
given the task of writing the story within the story as the character,
and outside the story, narrating with retroactive knowledge.
We love the beginning third for the spot-on performances of Ermey and
D'Onofrio. But as with all of Kubrick's work, the plot and dialogue are
really just secondary concerns. What makes this grip, unlike the works
of many lesser filmmakers, is the supremacy of the camera. On the
Island, the camera is on a dolly...disciplined, humiliated. In country,
it is held-held, it marches, charges, crouches and hides. We get a
lesson from the master in how to build story inertia through visual
And in the finale, the most striking feature here, the idea of the
camera as rifle/rifle as camera duality. The camera literally becomes
the sniper's weapon. And who ultimately puts a metaphorical end to the
deadly vision? The photographer...then the writer dispatches it and the
story with a prayer. Heavy duty stuff..
