This certainly rates as one of the best Vietnam films of all time.

One of the few good war movies b/c it portrays the cruelty (of war and men) and the uselessness of war in a very authentic way. If the ending (Chris' few last word) would have been a little less idle talk and more meaningful, I would have given Platoon even 8/10 stars.
