A brutal depiction of the Vietnam war, recounted from Stone's own experiences as a soldier, Platoon tells the story of a young innocent 19-year-old soldier, Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen), who is thrown headfirst into the bloody Vietnam conflict. He is forced to fight not only the Viet Cong, but also his own fears and intense anger. As a result of not being able to make any progress against the enemy, the soldiers - led by the strict and unsympathetic Sergeant Barnes (Tom Berenger) - turn their anger and guns on each other.
An emotionally exhausting, deeply anti-heroic depiction of America's great military defeat, heightened by bold direction.
