Movie Reviews

Newsweek - 10/10 by Jack Kroll As brutally unsparing as "Platoon" was, it was ultimately warm and embracing. Kubrick's film is about as embracing as a full-metal-jacketed bullet in the gut. [29 June 1987]
Antagony & Ecstasy - 10/10 by Tim Brayton One of Kubrick's foremost triumphs, a genuinely challenging and uncomfortable war film
The Nation - 10/10 by Terrence Rafferty No amount of stylistic analysis, however, is likely to explain why a man would devote more than three years of his life to making a war movie in which violent death isn't meant to move us. Does Kubrick really think we're not callous enough about war?
Washington Post - 10/10 by Desson Thomson The most eloquent and exacting vision of the war to date... Inspired with technique rather than overblown with it, Kubrick, the filmmaker's filmmaker, lays one on you.
Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by David Sterritt What makes the film stunning is less its metaphorical scheme than its cinematic style. Always a matter of flowing camera movement, Kubrick has photographed much of the action with long "traveling shots" that capture time and space as a seamless whole, not fractured into the bits and pieces of standard editing techniques. [26 June 1987]
USA Today - 10/10 by Mike Clark A contender for the year's best film.
Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Gene Siskel It's a great piece of filmmaking, diminished only by a second act that fails to live up to the first act of the Marines in training.
Creative Loafing - 10/10 by Matt Brunson It still qualifies as one of Kubrick's most underrated pictures, and it's second only to Apocalypse Now as the best Vietnam War movie ever made.
Groucho Reviews - 10/10 by Peter Canavese Kubrick again turns his unsparing eye to the dread of existence...of a godless universe...of moral frailty and civilization gone wrong...[Blu-ray]
Chicago Reader - 10/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum Elliptical, full of subtle inner rhymes...and profoundly moving, this is the most tightly crafted Kubrick film since "Dr. Strangelove," as well as the most horrific; the first section alone accomplishes most of what "The Shining" failed to do.
Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Dave Kehr The film has undeniable power, but it's an unusual and unsettling power, a product of a collision between red-hot material and the cool serenity with which Kubrick observes and accepts it. [26 June 1987]
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Sheila Benson In a superb cast of mostly unknowns -- with the exception of Matthew Modine and Dorain Harewood -- D'Onofrio, who put on 60 pounds for this pivotal role, and Ermey are exceptional. [26 June 1987]
