Definitely is, i hate war movies but apocalypse now is just epic. I get bored during every other war movie but apocalypse now is so entertaining. The only other war movie I like is born on the 4th of july but it isn't a typical war movie

One of the best war films ever made, and one of the defining movies of the 1970s
