Writer/director Oliver Stone has created a personal and searing testament to the men who fought the war in Vietnam. Seen through the eyes of a college drop-out, the war is a real nightmare, a private hell of fears from outside and in, with enemies on both sides of the line. His platoon's allegiance is split between leaders Sergeant Barnes and Sergeant Elias. Barnes is a scar-faced, gung-ho fanatic bent on destroying the elusive Viet Cong and anyone who disagrees with him. Elias is a different type of soldier--he has lost faith in the war, but not in man. Friction between the two sergeants leads to a second war, as deadly as the one being waged against the enemy.

The first casualty of war is innocence

What sort of quality is the picture on this version, as I bought this on DVD a couple of years ago and the picture was rubbish. I love this film but really want a decent digitally restored version.

good quality on mine...its defo been remastered

Fantastic film, one of the best of it's era. Watched it at the cinema when it first came out & it was amazing.

for almost the same price you can get Platoon, Windtalkers and Behind Enemy Lines in a set so why is this hot?

Bluray is not available yet & there's no release date yet :x, I'm waiting for a re mastered HD quality version myself as it's easily my favourite vietnam war film.

Amazing film, amazing find. Amazing price.

Your amazing. Thanks.

Amazing rep and amazing heat given.

PS: I think the best war movie ever is arguably:

1. Saving Private Ryan
2. Thin Red Line
3. Platoon

In my opinion of course.

Steve, you think it's amazing?:p

Can't really argue with your list though. I always thought "Casualties of War" is a somewhat overlooked great fil. Very harrowing.

It's available on bluray from korea [it will have english audio], But most people [like me] are waiting for a UK or US release.

Yeah right, Movie studios have invested millions [if not billions] into bluray & hd dvd, They not going to invest into another format in the next few years at least [especially in the current economic climate]. Downloading HD has some issues to overcome first aswell [download speeds for majority of us, fair usage policy, etc], Personally i like to have something physical for my money.

Brotherhood is the best war film i have seen but this is still hot

I'd say Platoon is second only to Apocalypse Now as far as war movies go.

good price for a top film, i have the steelbook edition (which im 95% sure this wont be) for £7.99 when this was first released 2 years ago. great price for that too.
