This movie is the greatest war movie ever.
Read Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad and then watch this film. That is all I am going to say.
I. Love. This. Movie. But I also loved "Heart of Darkness," while everyone else in my Sophomore English class hated it, so maybe I'm in the minority here. But honestly, the scene where the F-5's drop the napalm with "Flight of the Valkyries" playing...I get chills every time.
