One of the most powerful journeys ever explored in film. Where 2001: A Space Odyssey takes us on a cerebral ride into our humanity and the universe itself, Apocalypse Now takes us into ourselves, searching for depths that were not meant to be seen, unmasking the primal evil that exists inside all of us.
Apocalypse Now: Francis Ford Coppola's aboaulte war masterpeice. Beautful cinematography, intensly crafted and thought provoking message about the haunting hallucinatory insantiy of war makes Apocalypse Now a war masterpeice.
An instant classic, I wish the ending was a tad different but when can I complain when Marlon Brando is magnetic on screen as well as pretty much the entire cast. Filled with a rich story with much deeper themes running though it, some intense sequences of action and kidnap, and of course very quotable lines such as "Charlie don't surf!"
Martin Sheen just LOOKING at the camera a lot; if you said to yourself "I wish there were more movies with martin Sheen just LOOKING at the CAMERA, then this is for you. Dennis Hopper play oddball weirdo hippy type saying spacey things. (like always). Then there are various grand visuals after grand visuals. And then Martin Sheen kills marlon brando at the end,Brando is bald.
Apocalypse now is a fantastic movie directed by the legendary director Francis Ford Coppola starring the great actors Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando and other great actors. It's a great movie with a great cast. Francis Ford Coppola really shows the audience that war is a living hell and that it's absolutely terrible to witness. This Vietnam War classic is a very audacious and stunning movie that is a must watch!
For my first time around, I thought it was extremely Hard to follow and figure out the symbolism behind everything. I'll give it another try someday, but for now this remains in the overrated section of my War films list
Had trouble not falling asleep throughout the entire film. Felt like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom added on to a war film and the result was awful. Didn't inspire any thought other than to get a well-earned good night's sleep as I would otherwise be wasting more of my time.
There is no denying that this classic war movie delves into some complex ideas about the horrors of war. I thought there were interesting moments and I think the movie is directed in a unique way. I also really liked the songs used in the film and the score as well. The movie builds a unique atmosphere and is worth checking out. However, I can't seem to understand why this movie is hailed as one of the greats. Unfortunately, I felt a lot of it dragged on and on and the pacing shifted constantly. The characters and direction are effective enough but overall I found the movie to be pretty slow and not really for me. I see why it is important in film history, but I have found more enjoyment from other films in this genre.
