Full Metal Jacket 
Full Metal Jacket
2.5/4 stars

Full Metal Jacket is almost like two films wrapped into one, only I don't really mean that in a good way. The first hour is absolutely brilliant, featuring witty lines and two phenomenal performances from Vincent D'Onofrio and R. Lee Ermey. It follows a group of Marines through their journey in boot camp. The second half of the film follows the Marines as they serve in the Vietnam War. Unfortunately though, it's not as brilliant as the first part. In fact it's a little boring and pointless which has always been my problem with Kubrick films. The battle scenes were great, but all the while I felt like something was missing. Overall Full Metal Jacket is a good film, but it falls off dramatically after the first hour or so. Another disappointing Stanley Kubrick classic that I didn't like.
