Full…Metal…Jacket….Joker….”Lock and Load”
written by Emery Myers
Peace and a machine-gun! That is American…the “duality of man” as Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Movie “Full Metal Jacket” implies, rather napalm-like! In your face and real, the first segment is unbelievably realistic to any of us old-time Marine Corps Veterans! Stanley Kubrick NAILED IT in the boot camp portion!
The movie is about a pragmatic U.S. Marine that observes the dehumanizing effects the U.S.-Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal Marine Corps Boot Camp Training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.
This movie is a two-segmented look at the effect of the military mindset and war itself on Vietnam-Era-MARINES.
