Why watch this film?
Oliver Stone is a veteran of the Vietnam War. Therefore, 'Platoon' is a portrait, even if fictional, that does justice to the conflict. A complete way to feel the horrors of war through an extremely realistic view.
Chris Taylor is a young, naive American who, upon his arrival in Vietnam, quickly discovers that he must do battle not only with the Viet Cong, but also with the gnawing fear, physical exhaustion and intense anger growing within him. While his two commanding officers draw a fine line between the war they wage against the enemy and the one they fight with each other, the conflict, chaos and hatred permeate Taylor, suffocating his realities and numbing his feelings to man's highest value... life.
