APOCALYPSE NOW (USA 1979)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Starsìììì

Apocalypse Now—Wow! Bravo! Winning Entertainment!—becomes one of Martin Sheen’s best films. Robert Duvall does a phenomenal job acting as Bill Kilgore. Strong links can be drawn to the outstanding performance of George C. Scott in the movie Patton!. While Robert Duvall’s role is a bit outside of his usual characterizations, he fits this character as a hand to its glove. Marlon Brando? WOW! If you’ve never appreciated Brando before, look again and see why critics routinely assigned him the title of one of the best performers of our time. The script, outstandingly written, presents a fresh, original story that Director Francis Ford Coppola once again draws movie magic from for every scene. Bravo!! Bravo!! Encore!! Encore!! This is one of the best Vietnam war films on the market.
