Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture (1986: Picture, Director, Editing, Sound), and based on the first-hand experience of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, Platoon is powerful, intense and starkly brutal.

Colin Farrell (Phone Booth, Hart's War) garnered a Best Actor award from the Boston Society of Film Critics for his star-making performance in this riveting, action film from acclaimed director Joel Schumacher.

Bozz's independent and outright defiance draws fire from his own men as well as commanding officers who cant afford conflict in the middle of a war.
