platoon is one of the war films, that actuallyb gives a reilistic portrayal of war. no production studios would take stones story. independent production of this films shows how the us goverment/ media machine knew the concequences of producing ths film, would cause unaware citizens to become aware of the horrors, and blunders the usA made in NAM!!

I would just watch it for the running scene at the end when he makes out out alive but his buddies just took off...

is platoon a spiced up version of lord of the flies? at the end sheen says that they were fighting the evil inside of them all.

This film was utterly brilliant. I just saw it last night.

Lord of the Flies? Yeah possibly, the same kind of theme.
