The Boys in Company C Reviews
I've heard that the film was an inspiration for Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket and it's hard not to see how - the first 40 minutes follows the recruits through boot camp before shifting the story to Vietnam. R. Lee Ermey even plays one of the drill instructors, though don't expect anything even approaching the magic of FMJ's D.I. Hartman. Also, this is a war movie that's strictly about the characters so don't expect any notable battle scenes. Trust me though, in this case you won't miss them.
IT'S OUT ON DVD. It came back out in Sep '08. I just found it today. Am watching it again now. Still great movie.
You can get an R2 copy from eBay Shop dvdmovieimportshop if you're UK. Check out ebay - loadsa suppliers in the US, prices pan out £15-£20, so I guess about $25-$40
