Critic Reviews of "Platoon"New York Daily NewsFebruary 22, 2015
This film is an act of courage. Stone, the gutsy writer-director, records in a devastating barrage of images the relentless horror and the senseless carnage experienced by far too many Americans in Vietnam.Orlando SentinelFebruary 22, 2015
Stone's strongest suit, however, isn't so much realism as it is his way of blending immediacy and insight.Chicago TribuneFebruary 24, 2014
There are images in Platoon so powerful that they seem, rather than simply imprinted on celluloid, to have been burned into memory.Philadelphia InquirerFebruary 24, 2014
Precisely because Stone forces you to experience a grunt's tunnel vision and rage, Platoon is a film of inspiring empathy and awesome force. Curiously, that same tunnelvision in the end compromises Platoon.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 19, 2013
This is movie-making with a zealot's fervor.Chicago TribuneFebruary 19, 2013
Platoon is filled with one fine performance after another, and one can only wish that every person who saw the cartoonish war fantasy that was Rambo would buy a ticket to Platoon and bear witness to something closer to the truth.Philadelphia Daily NewsFebruary 24, 2014
Platoon is not the definitive Vietnam statement that Stone may have intended, or that others are already claiming it to be. But it is a powerful document about that sad war, and a riveting piece of moviemaking.South Florida Sun-SentinelFebruary 24, 2014
The utter chaos of war in Vietnam is brilliantly portrayed. No one can deny this film the power of its images and the weight of all-pervasive terror it creates.Radio TimesFebruary 24, 2014
This is a modern classic and a personal exorcism for its director.Christian Science MonitorFebruary 24, 2014
Oliver Stone tries ambitiously to capture the full horror and frenzy of combat in Southeast Asia, but his technical skill outstrips his insight.People MagazineJanuary 21, 2014
No sane person should want to get any closer to war than this film.7M PicturesOctober 02, 2013
One of the best Vietnam films out there. And this is coming from a person who thinks that modern-day filmmaker Oliver Stone is a big, fat windbag.
