Movie synopsis
Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam epic, loosely based on HEART OF DARKNESS by Joseph Conrad, tells the story of Captain Willard (Martin Sheen), a special agent sent into Cambodia to assassinate an errant American colonel (Marlon Brando). Willard is assigned a navy patrol boat operated by Chief (Albert Hall) and three hapless soldiers (Frederic Forrest, Sam Bottoms, and Larry Fishburne). They are escorted on part of their journey by an air cavalry unit led by Lt. Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall), a gung-ho commander with a love of Wagner, surfing, and napalm. After witnessing a surreal USO show featuring Playboy playmates and an anarchic battle with the Viet Cong at a bridge, Willard reaches Colonel Kurtz's compound. A crazed photo journalist and Kurtz groupie (Dennis Hopper) welcomes the crew, and Willard begins to question his orders to "terminate the colonel's command." The grueling production and Coppola's insistence on authenticity led to vast budget overruns and physical and emotional breakdowns. Considered to be one of the best war movies of all time, APOCALYPSE NOW features incredible performances and beautifully chaotic visuals that make it an absolute must-see.In August 2001, a new version of the film, title APOCALYPSE NOW REDUX, was released. The new version includes 49 minutes of never-before-seen footage, a Technicolor enhancement, and a six-channel soundtrack.

Editorial reviews

"...A brilliant and bizarre film....An exhilarating action and adventure exercise....The cast is extraordinary, with Sheen extremely effective in laconic style..."
Variety - Poll. (05/16/1979)

"...Coppola's APOCALYPSE NOW lives up to its grand title....The actors are superlatively right..."
New York Times - Vincent Canby (08/15/1979)

"...One of the key films of the century. Most films are lucky to contain a single great sequence. APOCALYPSE NOW strings together one after another, with the river journey as the connecting link..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (11/28/1999)

"Brando had created one of the cinema's most distinctive and memorable boogeymen."
Premiere - Premiere Staff (10/01/2004)

4 stars out of 5 -- "Rarely have the themes and events unravelling on screen encapsulated and mirrored a director's own hellish filmmmaking journey as they do with APOCALYPSE NOW..."
Ultimate DVD - Simon Edwards (10/01/2006)

"Brando hardly needed anything but his voice and his eyes to make a lasting impression."
Entertainment Weekly - Entertainment Weekly Staff (07/16/2004)

"...With glorious cinematography..."
Total Film - Andy Lowe (01/01/2001)

One of my ten best of all time

This movie has always been one of my favorites. I remember when I saw it for the first time and where. It has always represented an immensely unpopular war in which young men suffered and died for all the wrong reasons. The featured actors in the film were perfectly suited for their roles and the plot was an almost haunting story of suffering and death. For those of us who never served in Vietnam it made us feel certain that this would have been our experience had we been there.
As a war movie for me it ranks with "Saving Private Ryan" and "Black Hawk Down" as the best ever made.

Excellent movie!

Review For: Apocalypse Now (Blu-ray Disc, 2010, 2-Disc Set, Special Edition)

As a fan of Apocalypse Now there's a lot I could say about it. however most people might be more interested in the quality of the new version. I have to say that this new format is a whole different way to appreciate something that is by itself superb. there are things I had never seen before. I don't think its only me I bet there are some other people out there thinking the same. Anyway it's such a great way to see movies. With Bluray you really get to rediscover the pleasure of watching movies at home. 100% recommended!

Apocalypse Now (DVD, 1999)

Generally recognized as a great movie - not much I can add to that! Depicts the 'horrors of war' without being morbid or revolting. In fact, instructive but also entertaining. Super cast! Very accurate, as far as I can determine; genuine 'you are there' atmosphere. Should be in the film library of anyone who collects war/history movies or great performances. This particular version leaves nothing to be desired. bat-tado

Apocalypse Right Now

Review For: Apocalypse Now (Blu-ray Disc, 2010, 2-Disc Set, Special Edition)

Didn't turn out so well. The disc has an imperfection on the surface and the movie breaks up about halfway through. I can chapter ahead but lose part of the film. It's not a scratch; it's a slight bubble on the disc. Can't hold the seller responsible as I didn't watch the film for quite a while after I purchased it. I've bought a lot of movies and this is the first time I've had this experience. Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear...
