30 Brutal Wars Movies That You Have To See
Platoon is a gritty dance through the muck and madness of Vietnam. Oliver Stone is at the helm, orchestrating a symphony of chaos and camaraderie amidst the hellfire. This gruesome war film is a cocktail of youthful disillusionment, moral decay, and the sweet, seductive embrace of darkness. Charlie Sheen is in his element as the fresh meat, wide-eyed and eager, stumbling headfirst into a snake pit of conflicting ideologies and violence that'd make even the darkest horror films seem like child's play.
Platoon is no Sunday picnic, it's a visceral plunge into the abyss of war's heart of darkness, a blood-soaked ballet that leaves you questioning the fragility of the human psyche.
