  1. Mashi95's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

  2. Erica Narduzzi's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

  3. Jim's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    ★★ / 35mm / A mesmerizing beginning, an engrossing portrayal of how to train killers, Ermey, the foul mouthed drill sergeant, Onoforio, that evil shit face grin, a great Modine, the moral center worn down, succumbs to a tired, poorly realized second part, full of wartime clichés, exaggerated male bonding, blood thirsty soldiers, overwrought emotional moments, bizarrely set amongst a faux representation of Vietnam.

  4. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    Along with "Apocalypse Now," this is one of the finest war films I've ever seen. Like most Kubrick films, it features unforgettable imagery, powerful writing, intense performances, and raises a lot of thought-provoking questions about its subject matter without forcing answers on you. And, if you just like action, this has some of the most immersive (and artful) battle scenes you're likely to find.

  5. jhubbs's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    The least Kubricky Kubrick. Feels like two unique films squashed together. Hard to put a number on

  6. RyanJosephMarx's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    Here we can see Kubrick's best feature, the ability of synthesise a movie genre and a time period in a single film.

  7. Robert Franco's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

  8. Rulfhi Rulfhi's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    Pada menit-menit awal saya digiring dengan percakapan-percakapan yang kadang tegas tapi terkesan lucu. Hingga kemudian saya mulai merasakan dilema, ketika ada seorang prajurit yang tak pernah bisa mandiri, harus selalu dibantu dan dimotivasi. Namun nyatanya si prajurit merasa tertekan sampa menembak komandannya dan bunuh diri. Film yang dilematis dari seorang prajurit marinir.

  9. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    The entire first half of the movie where the recruits are drilled for Vietnam action by the hard R.Lee Ermey is fantastic and the best part of the film as Vincent D'Onofrio is transformed from a dim-witted and nice big boy to a brainwashed killer. The second film disappoint by going the traditional war movie route but also show how war criminality is easy when one is scared and trapped in the middle. Powerful.

  11. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    I wish it were more about the Vietnamese victims of the war than its American casualties, tho I appreciate that the killing of the sniper (Ngoc Le) at the end of the film signals the impossible cultural divide that exists for an American filmmaker trying to communicate the Vietnamese experience of the war. All the same, probably the war film I respect the most as it neither glorifies nor lectures. A chilling machine.

  13. pintobean's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    Brilliant. The model for scores of war dramas since I'm sure (Jarhead and Tigerland come to mind) but effortlessly unique with its smart dialogue and Kubrick's amazing direction.

  14. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    A tale of two cities; man driven insane at military training camp, the rest losing their morality in the midst of the Vietnam war.

  15. Sofia's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    I liked it until the point one of the boys shoots himself in the bathroom. After that it becomes a silly war movie with no content what's so ever.

  16. Marco's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

  17. steeeeellaaaaa (Iulia N)'s rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    5 stars for the first half, 3 for the second one

  18. João R's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    Crude (mainly in the first arc) yet darkly soft in its way of portraying such disturbing matters. Maybe that's why it works so well even though its two halves seem unbalanced (I prefer the first half). But, in the end, it all works as a whole.

  19. petar lazarov's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

  20. Terri Wise's rating of the film Full Metal Jacket

    Three and a half stars. The first half is dark and awful and amazing. The second half gets at the absurdity of the war, but somehow lacks the punch of the first half.
