The best vietnam war - based - movie ever made. My favorite of all time. Tremendous acting displayed by the entire cast. Robert De Niro & Christopher Walken at their finest. 🎬🦌

May be one of the best war movies. There are some scenes that stick with you far after the movie. It makes you see the mental effects of war and how it may change people you thought you knew.

Among the best movies ever made. Classic lines like "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" have entered the American lexicon.
