There is not much to reiterate about the story, carved with its strength in the collective imagination, with a first part dedicated to the exhausting (also psychologically) training of the marines, and another at the theater of war of Vietnam, after a very powerful break midway through, sublimation of the recitation of Vincent D’Onofrio. However, the protagonist Matthew Modine and the late are not forgotten either R. Lee Ermey, a true retired ex-soldier then turned to acting. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Non-Original Screenplay (from the novel “The Short Timers”) and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Role in a Drama (Ermey).
The extra content on the Full Metal Jacket include the audio commentary Vincent D’Onofrio, Adam Baldwin, R.Lee Ermey and the critic Jay Cocks, and the featurette “Full Metal Jacket: Between Good and Evil”.
