The movie, Platoon, is a powerful, intense and starkly brutal depiction of America's involvement in the Vietnam War. The central plot of the movie centers on Chris Taylor a young, naive American who upon his arrival in war torn Vietnam, quickly discovers that he must do battle not only with the Viet Cong but also with the gnawing fear, physical exhaustion and anger growing within him. While his two commanding officers draw a fine line between the war they wage against the enemy and the one they fight with each other, the conflict, chaos and pure hatred overtake Taylor suffucating his realities and numbing his feelings about life itself.
