Watched this on Netflix

As is, this movie is pretty good. For what it is for it's time and when it was made. I can see how it's a classic and it does hold up... decently.
However it's horribly dated now and suffers from the lack of technology used when filming. As good as it is, I would love to see it remade by today's standards by someone who really knew how to handle the film.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bunny kills the one legged Vietnamese with the butt of his gun, watch the cigarette in Sgt. O'Neill's mouth. In a shot after the kid is dead, the cigarette in O'Neill's mouth is short. When it shows him again, the cigarette has mysteriously grown. (00:50:00)

Trivia: Director Oliver Stone claimed that the lead character of Chris was largely autobiographical and mirrored many of Stone's own experiences as a soldier in Vietnam.
