Without question, Full Metal Jacket is one of the finest films ever made!

Trash. Overrated trash. Someone convince me otherwise. Just try.

I'm with you on that one. Tonally and structurally inconsistent and it feels like a collection of unfunny sketches that don't connet with each other instead of a complete film!
The last scene with the sniper proves my point. It starts as a comedy sketch AND THEN it becomes the climax of the film out of nowhere AND THEN it becomes overly serious out of nowhere and there was no transition to get to those places!
Even the first 45 minutes that everyone loves was very repetitive and meant nothing at the end! My least favourite Kubrick movie by far!

Really damn good. I don't have any problems with the portion of the film in Vietnam, I thought it was as amazing as the Paris Island segment.

No complaints about the movie. It was definitely a solid solid war movie. Not anywhere near my favorite war movie, but it has some very memorable parts that made it stand out above other movies from the same genre.

Strange, A really really good movie starring D'Onofrio and Ermey ends and then an uninteresting typical war movie plays afterwards. How do you rate half a film? I wanna see the full-length version of the first one.
