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.
