  • An important film
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Tim2E - October 3, 2020

    This is about as raw as it can get. Many people cite the first half of the movie that takes place during basic training as the best part of the movie. I'm not going to argue that but I will say that the second half of the movie that portrays the Marines in country is just as powerful yet very different. There is a feeling that you want to look away or cover your ears at some points, the violence and racial epithets are quite visceral; but softening them would detract from the movie. The 4K visuals are great. I wished they had spent a little money and deleted the high tension electrical towers seen in the background of Viet Nam. LOL

  • Excellent 4K upgrade on a class Kubrick movie !
    Verified BuyerReviewed by FuGwah - December 23, 2020

    Based on the novel "The Short-Timers" , Kubrick's 1987 movie about the journey of a platoon from their boot camp training to their deployment in the Vietnam War is viewed as modern classic in terms of its depiction of the physical and mental toll of War. The excellent acting of the two leads ( Matthew Modine , Vincent D'Onofrio ) is only eclipsed by the over-the-top performance of Lee Ermey as the infamous Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. This 2020 re-release of FULL METAL JACKET shines with a new 4K transfer that shows intricate details of the sets, locations and costumes that were not visible on the 2007 blu-ray release. Buy this 4K release with confidence if you are a fan of the movie

  • Remastered masterpiece
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PDBrown - April 18, 2021

    Let’s face it A lot of movies made 35 years ago were filmed with best technology available at that time but are nowhere close to today’s picture and audio quality. The transfer to 4K UHD leaves a lot to be desired in most cases. I was pleasantly surprised with the video quality of Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam classic. The colors and black level contrast are very good and the noise level is surprisingly good. The soundtrack was disappointing as it is not in ATMOS and of course the aspect ratio is not wide screen. If your a fan of this film I believe the upgrade is worth it. I would not use it as film to show off your system, get something recently made filmed with superior technology.

  • Solid 4k transfer
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Bush007 - November 13, 2020

    Solid 4k transfer here. Slight layer of grain throughout. Some shots were a bit more focused than others, but that is mostly due to directors intent. The 4k PQ seems to improve as the film goes on. Im very happy with this transfer. Very smooth with all the scratches and tears patched up. I wouldnt demo this disc if im trying to show off my panel, but it does make the film look good.
