Apocalypse Now Redux Reviews

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Apocalypse Now" all but ruined Francis Coppola as a director. It remains a staggering achievement of pure provocative cinema.

Slant Magazine

The episodic nature is less apparent in Redux, the pacing surprisingly smoother as a result.

Redux's virtues far outweigh its flaws. Apocalypse Now in any version remains one of the richest, most extravagant moviegoing experiences

Sacramento News & Review

The new version shows that Coppola had originally intended something far more political, and while some of the new stuff could've remained lost, it does not diminish the movie's impact.

The best picture of all time.

Revisiting this enlarged, much improved version reaffirms its status as Coppola's last masterpiece but also suggests that as a surreal meditation on the madness and folly of Vietnam, it should be considered a horror epic rather than a than just a war film

The new version adds a weight and depth lacking in the original cut.

Worth a single viewing for the curious, but definitely not for the purist.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Coppola leaves untouched the one section that cried out for a new edit - the murky finale that puts the "near" in "near masterpiece.

Philadelphia Weekly

...a more user-friendly, politically correct Apocalypse Now with kinder, gentler characters, blabbermouth political diatribes, comic relief and mind-numbing repetition.

Laramie Movie Scope

Almost an hour of new footage has been added to the film, making an already long film even longer, but not better.

Sometimes it's just better to leave well enough alone.

Film Freak Central

Its sprawling, episodic process evokes the history-as-imagistic mosaic employed by T.S. Eliot, whose work is referenced brazenly and repeatedly throughout the film.

Flipside Movie Emporium

...a longer, slower, more bloated version of [the] incendiary masterpiece which retains much of its power but suffers from some seriously unnecessary revisions.

Unlike so many of today's films, which are instantly disposable from first frame to last, Coppola's opus has so many moments of pure cinematic genius that once seen, they stay with us forever.

What has not changed with Apocalypse Now Redux -- and the reason to go see it again -- are the visceral body blows it still delivers.

Packs every bit the wallop it did when it was new.

This was the greatest Vietnam movie of its time, and it remains so.
