Not a movie about war but a movie about human nature. Masterpiece.

Good movie, but Full Metal Jacket and Platoon made a much bigger impression on me than this one.


I watched it again yesterday, and now I take my statement back. Apocalypse Now is an amazing film that really shows the horrors of war and how it makes people crazy. The music is great, the cinematography is great and there are tons of memorable scenes.

One of those war pictures that really puts you inside the characters and the situations they are in. The feeling of fear and utter waste is very viceral throughout the film. The attack on the Do Long bridge towards the middle of the movie is without a doubt one of the best film sequences ever made. It's gritty and dark with total chaos breaking loose that just grabs you and makes you so thankful you aren't really there. 10/10 easily

“Someday this war’s gonna end.”

Chills. When that serene green landscape with those beautiful palm trees and the curling yellow fumes bursts into flame, when the beat drops and that voice begins to sing this is the end, I felt chills run up and down my spine. This was going to be something great. I could feel it in my bones.

What do you get when you give a brilliant, hubristic mind the freedom to make whatever the fuck he likes, however he likes? What do you get after two of the most beautiful films ever made, two films that managed to marry art and commercial success in a way that so few had managed to achieve on such a grand scale before? You get a passion project that is about one situation and about the whole wide world all at once. You get Apocalypse Now.

I don’t know how to talk about it. I’m not really sure what I've just experienced. All I remember is faces and eyes and neon smoke. Gunshots and blank-eyed Vietnamese and a mother telling her son to avoid the bullets so he can get home safe. Men who would rather be out there in the forest among grenades and bloodshed than back in the regular world. Soldiers blasting Wagner as their helicopters descend to manufacture yet another apocalypse. Natives fleeing like helpless ants. Colonel Kurtz, revealed only in fragments, lurid orange light illuminating his bald head like a crescent moon. A severed head.

“He’s a poet warrior in the classical sense.”

Apocalypse Now is the most disturbing film I’ve ever watched. I want to forget it, but I want to see it again, too, and perhaps understand it in a different way, in a deeper way. It’s one of those films that feels as though it could very well mutate behind my back, turn into something else entirely by the time I return to it. It’s alive and real and completely fucking insane like nothing else I’ve ever experienced before, with those mesmerizing voices and faces and breathtaking visuals that narrate death and hysteria and complete, inescapable madness. Apocalypse Now is a glimpse into hell itself

Outstanding picture, best war movie I've seen. Surrealistic, and full of great nonsense scenes.

It was a great journey down that river, but I will never forget Robert Duvall performance as Captain Napalm. And Ride of the Valkyries playing right there with all the helicopters, very good.
Brando was so creepy, his voice, omg his voice says it all.

It's the greatest movie I've ever seen that I would be perfectly fine with never seeing again in my life. Christ, what a bad trip.

Great movie, for me at least, it was good to have read Heart of Darkness first (the book this movie was based on, in theme and message, not setting). It made it much easier to see more than just the war.

I agree with Big A2, the extra stuff in Redux didn't add to the story and I thought only slowed it down. The theatrical cut was sufficient and effective in conveying the horror (the horror)

Disturbing and psychological.
Easily the best war movie I have ever seen. Hopefully I will never have to see it again...

Avoid the extended directors cut, it’s just too long to justify and left me hating this film.

Francis Ford Coppola lacks focus for me, and this does ramble on with various vignettes that don't really have to gel together, but it is the best of his work, with some memorable scenes, music and themes. The Redux version makes it clearer that going down the river is a trip back in time.
