Platoon Blu Ray
Arguably Oliver Stone's best film, Platoon was the first of three movies the director has made to date centred firmly on the Vietnam war. Born On The Fourth Of July and Heaven And Earth followed, but this one's the best, picking up four Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Based very much on Stone's personal experiences, Platoon follows Charlie Sheen's Chris Taylor as he joins the Vietnam conflict, only to discover that the battle he ends up fighting isn't the one he necessarily thought he was signing up for.
Action star Michael Dudikoff (Avenging Force) shines as an inexperienced West Point graduate thrown into the hells of war in this gutsy, brutal look at the real Vietnam War. After arriving in Nam, he soon realizes that his knowledge of warfare in textbooks would get him and his men slaughtered on the real battlefields and quickly becomes a battle-hardened Platoon Leader his men can depend on.
