  • In "Platoon," there is the constant fear that any movement offers a 50-50 chance between a safe place or an exposed one. Stone sets up his shots to deny us the feeling that combat makes sense. The Vietnam War is the central moral and political issue of the last quarter-century, for Americans.

  • Platoon, often cited as one of the best and most realistic war films ever made, is a stunning and sobering movie about Vietnam. Oliver Stone brings this film to the screen with an extreme amount ...

  • Platoon is a 1986 American war film written and directed by Oliver Stone one of the most strongest realistic anti war films of all time. It is one of the best Vietnam war films I have ever seen that won the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1986 and best Director for Oliver Stone, as well as Best Sound Mixing and Best Film Editing.

  • Platoon Embracing and projecting the vulnerability, jealous and empathy Platoon is a fast paced character driven feature that has merely an idea on which it walks for 2 hours but gets in deep with the characters and explores more than expected.

  • "Platoon" is an intense but artistically distanced study of infantry life during the Vietnam War. Writer-director Oliver Stone seeks to immerse the audience totally in the nightmare of the United ...

  • 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 ...

  • Top war movie is intensely violent, full of strong language. Read Common Sense Media's Platoon review, age rating, and parents guide.

  • "Platoon Leader" by James R. Mcdonough is a dramatic and believable actual account of what a platoon leader in the infantry must do with and for his troops in combat. It is obvious that Mcdonough actually lived this experience.

  • The unit in the movie Platoon is identified at the beginning of the film as Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Infantry Division. That unit, Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 22nd Infantry, 25th Infantry Division, was commanded at the time by Captain Robert Hemphill, now Lieutenant Colonel, Retired.
