This huge $90 million undertaking is a personal best for producer Jerry Bruckheimer, a triumph for Scott and a war film of prodigious power.

The opening, with the whirling sound of choppers intercut with Willard sweating angst in his Saigon hotel bed, a jungle burning with napalm...remains a visual and aural wonder.

From Hell (2001)
The Hughes boys blow it by burying a fine cast ... in stock scares, sappy romance and cliches that really are from hell.
