Storyline: It is the height of the war in Vietnam, and U.S. Army Captain Willard is sent by Colonel Lucas and a General to carry out a mission that, officially, 'does not exist - nor will it ever exist'. The mission: To seek out a mysterious Green Beret Colonel, Walter Kurtz, whose army has crossed the border into Cambodia and is conducting hit-and-run missions against the Viet Cong and NVA. The army believes Kurtz has gone completely insane and Willard's job is to eliminate him! Willard, sent up the Nung River on a U.S. Navy patrol boat, discovers that his target is one of the most decorated officers in the U.S. Army. His crew meets up with surfer-type Lt-Colonel Kilgore, head of a U.S Army helicopter cavalry group which eliminates a Viet Cong outpost to provide an entry point into the Nung River. After some hair-raising encounters, in which some of his crew are killed, Willard, Lance and Chef reach Colonel Kurtz's outpost, beyond the Do Lung Bridge. Now, after becoming prisoners of Kurtz, will...

I don't write many reviews, but after watching this so called "masterpiece" or "classic" last night for the first time i feel it warrants it, i need to warn people like myself about it. STAY AWAY!, it's 3 hours of your life you'll never get back. I like Martin Sheen, Brando, Larry Fishbourne, Harrison Ford, Dennis Hopper....heck i like all the cast. Francis Ford Coppola is a legendary director. I like war films. What i don't Apocalypse Now. It drags on and on....and on, and then the ending is a complete anti-climax. Robert Duvall's surfing obsessed Lt. Colonel is the best part about this film, he's a breathe of fresh air in an otherwise over rated movie....
Great interpretation of a good book to deliver points on the nature of war
In an updating of `Hearts of Darkness' a soldier is given a mission to travel up a river During the Vietnam war in order to terminate the command of Colonel Kurtz. Kurtz is operating without orders and is leading a group of natives in brutal violent strikes against the enemy. Despite his history of brilliance and decoration he has clearly gone mad. Willard joins a military boat and travels up river to his destiny. However the further he travels the more madness appears to have become the norm.

It is a film everyone knows, and a `making of' story that is familiar to everyone on some level. The problems with the military, with destroyed sets right down to Keitel walking off set to be replaced by Martin Sheen who then had a near complete breakdown during filming. However the story itself is what keeps this so popular. The original book is set in Victorian times and is similar only in the concept of travelling up a river and confronting something dark and changed in the shape of Kurtz. The modern day spin on it makes it even more interesting as it looks at the madness that comes with power within war.

The journey itself is at times comic and at other times brutal. The overall feeling is one of soldiers not knowing why they are fighting or who they are fighting. The feeling of confusion and fear is inherent in the film and is very well delivered. Willard's journey never fails to grip and is interesting on whatever level you watch it – whether it be for the famous set pieces or for the underlying themes.

The performances are excellent. Sheen has never been better and now seems so distant from his character that he is a different person. While some of the emotion on screen was real, he does a great job as our guide through the journey. The best performance comes from a surprising source –Brando. Despite the fact that he was difficult, horribly over weight and hadn't learnt his lines, his eerie performance is still haunting. His mumbling and reasoning in the shadows show that he may be touched by madness but, in the context of war, he is also touched by cold logical reasoning. Likewise Dennis Hopper fits in well despite his stoned demeanour. The support cast include some names as Albert Hall, Harrison Ford, Forrest and a young Larry Fishburne.

Overall this will remain a classic on many levels. The film itself is great and full of spectacle, the story of the making itself is interesting, the performances are wonderful despite everything and the fact that it has other themes makes it even better. As an war movie it is great simply because it isn't about the war it IS war – in the words of Coppola `it isn't about Vietnam, it is Vietnam, it's how the Americans were in Vietnam. We were in the jungle, we had too much money, too much equipment and, little by little, we went insane'. Classic film on so many levels.
The best movie I've ever seen?
Well maybe not the best movie I have seen but it's in my Top 10 for sure. I think it's one of those rare films that is better then the book (Heart of Darkness which is of course different). A lot of people debate whether it's a "war movie" I take the position that it's a war movie but that's only part of it. I think calling it only a "war movie" is taking away from how great this movie is. It doesn't just have the simple "war is hell" message that many war films have. It asks more piercing questions about human nature and character. It is drama, war, action, art, and manages to be entertaining as well as thought provoking. Even if the ideas don't grab you there are 3 things you cannot deny of this movie. 1)the acting is all top-notch 2)the cinematography is some of the best ever 3)it is well written. If you didn't like it or think you "got it" the first time, go back again it's well worth another trip up the river. Afterall this film's quality pretty much terminates all others...with extreme prejudice.

Apocalypse Now is one of the most disturbing and powerful films of all time
A stunning masterpiece from the director of the Godfather, Francis Ford Coppola. Apocalypse Now is set during the Vietnam War. It follows the quest of a man called Captain Willard who receives orders to travel up river and locate a renegade officer, the mysterious Colonel Kurtz. Once located Willard is ordered to 'terminate his command with extreme prejudice'. The only problem with this is that as the quest progresses Willard begins to see parts of himself in Kurtz and begins to identify with is intended victim.

With an infamous reputation and a cast to match, I built Apocalypse Now up to be a life changing experience. One thing I can say about it is that it stands out among the bombardment of films that my brain has been subjected to over the years. It had a reputation as being a bit of a let down in Coppola's eyes as he spent far too much money for what the film eventually grossed at the box office. To be fair to Coppola, anything that follows a film as prolific and influential as the Godfather would be hard pushed to surpass its predecessor. I believe that Apocalypse Now does this and at the risk of making myself unpopular with all you film buffs out there I believe that Apocalypse Now is twice the film The Godfather is. It is a film that I attempted to watch numerous times but just couldn't concentrate on it, dare I say it I found it tedious. I just couldn't understand how it had the reputation it does. As a film man I very rarely switch a film off but I did this one, at least the first ten attempts. I then was sitting bored the other night and swore to myself that it was something I just had to do so I sat down, stuck the DVD on and started drinking a large cup of coffee. Two and a half hours later I was mesmerised. Some may say it was the coffee, I say it was the film, but never the less that night I just could not sleep with excitement. Apocalypse Now is one of the most disturbing and powerful films of all time, it reflects the true limits of the human mind and demonstrates ideally how our ideology changes in different situations. A true masterpiece of epic proportions, that if stuck with will make you a truly richer person.

Yes, it's the best movie ever.
AN is the best movie ever shot. All the cinematographic language is used to a point never met before or afterward. The story is thrilling, and goes up and up to the climatic end. Everything that happens in it has a sense and the levels of reading are infinite. Every viewer will have his own interpretation about the meaning of the movie. It's a matter of feeling the meaning of the events: all of them put together conform a huge, psychological fresco of war. Every war, not only Vietnam. By the way, the Redux version is OK, but not truly necessary, except for the French colonists' scene. It's the only one I really think that should have been in the original version. It's really revealing of the position of France in Indochina. It should be shown in schools to teach the meaning of colonialism.
A marvelous bit of surrealist movie-making...
This film is arguably one of the most important cinematic achievements of the 20th century. Based on the book "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad this movie is a provocative display of the Vietnam War and the surreal, yet utterly human experiences of its combatants. In the story, Lieutenant Willard (Martin Sheen) travels down a river to seek and assassinate the crazed Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who has isolated himself from U.S. forces in a remote outpost. As Willard gets closer and closer to his prey though, he finds himself idolizing and obsessing over the invisible, god-like figure of Kurtz rather than preparing to kill him.

What sets this movie apart from other war movies is not its "hell no, we won't go," theme that appears in films such as Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket," nor its "no guts, no glory" theme that appears in movies such as "Patton." Instead, it is its dreamlike portrayal of war as an experience which brings out our most savage, yet undeniably, our most natural tendencies. Everything from the soundtrack, to the screenplay, to the acting furthers the notion that every person who spends time in a war begins to understand the most basic of human desires, and learns to eliminate their consciences. And this, evidently, is "the horror" that Willard refers to throughout the film.

The sweeping scenes of the blazing jungle, and the incessant whir of helicopter blades, are mere supplements to the brilliant performances of Brando, Sheen, Robert Duvall, Laurence Fishburne, and Dennis Hopper among others. This movie in itself is a dangerous odyssey, for it takes more than a clever film critic to truly understand its importance. The message is hidden deep in the jungle and takes a keen eye to divulge and appreciate. This is a movie about escape from civility, "the end of our elaborate plan," and a descent into chaos and madness, the only question is, are you ready for the Apocalypse?
I seriously don't understand why this is so highly rated
I mean WHY?

Maybe in 1979 during the war it was awe inspiring etc. etc. but I failed to notice what all the commotion is about.

Plot: A Soldier not having much work these days getting all bored is assigned a mission to annihilate an ex-army legend who has now taken refuge with this band of soldiers somewhere in Vietnam-Cambodia during the war.

Acting is brilliant make no mistake but I couldn't connect the pieces. Maybe I'm dumb and all but unless your an American this is boring & depressing.

P.S. I generally appreciate war movies.
Perhaps you're forgetting the most obvious influence...
The most obvious influence for this movie isn't a movie, it's a book. Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". Kurtz is the same character in the movie and in the book, and Willard represents Marlow from the book. Even the character played by Dennis Hopper comes from "Heart of Darkness". The book is about the colonization and exploitation of Africa by the Europeans in the late 1800s. The setting is on the Congo river, and they travel up the river closer towards "Darkness" or Kurtz. This is the same paralell as the river in Vietnam depicted in Apocalypse Now. I thought the movie was great, and much easier to stay involved with than the Stream of Consciousness writing style that is present in Conrad's Heart of Darkness.
Possibly one of the greatest films ever made
Loosely based on Conrad's Heart of Darkness' This is a stunning,disturbing and even sometimes humorous look at the insanity of war and mankind's dark side. As well as being one of the greatest war films ever made it is also a study of insanity similar to 'Aguirre Wrath of God' (1973) and is one of only about 3 films that totally stunned me when I first saw it. Brilliantly staged and both chilling and memorizing it delivers amazing action and characters where we we see the animal that lurks in all of us and, in Kilgore in particular, we see the ultimate human insanity: the fact that we deep down enjoy killing and destruction.
The greatest film ever made, but not "Redux"
The original "Apocalypse Now" is an awe-inspiring masterpiece, there's no doubt; it's my all-time favorite film. Memorable scenes abound, starting with the blow-your-mind opening with Willard (Martin Sheen) having a mental breakdown in his sweltering hotel room to the tune of The Doors' "The End."

Speaking of Sheen, people overlook the fact that he carries the film and does so brilliantly. His haunting narration is one of the most effective narrations in cinematic history and hooks the viewer into the nightmare-adventure.

I could go on and on about the noteworthy scenes, but I'll resist, except to comment on Col. Kurtz: Was he really insane or actually an unrecognized genius? General Corman informs Willard: "He's out there operating without any decent restraint, totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct. And he is still in the field commanding troops." And, yet, Kurtz was accomplishing what the US military couldn't or wouldn't do because of political complications and niceties. I bring this up because, as I've aged, I've come to see that I'M Col. Kurtz in some ways -- operating "out there" beyond the parameters and restrictions typically linked to my work.

The "Redux" version was put together by director Francis Ford Coppola in 2001 with the addition of 53 minutes of material that he originally felt was not worthy of his magnificent picture. Naturally any fan of the original film MUST see "Redux" to view this extra footage.

I saw "Redux" in the theater in 2001 and was extremely disappointed. The brilliance of the original is still there, but very little of the added footage works; most of it simply drags the film down, the rest is either boring and unnecessary or adds a dimension of silliness, not to mention it's badly scripted and acted.

The first let down of "Redux" is revealed when Captain Willard hooks up with the boat and crew that are to escort him up the river to ultimately find Colonel Kurtz. In the original there's a water-skiing scene on the river which perfectly and dynamically introduces us to the absurdities of every-day life in the field in Nam (with the Rolling Stone's "Satisfaction" blaring). In "Redux" this part is cut and pasted to an hour LATER in the film, horribly muting the original's introduction to life-in-the-field. (I realize WHY Coppola did this -- because the scene was originally intended to be shown later in the film, after the boat crew stole Kilgore's surfboard -- but he made the right decision to omit the board-theft scene and place the water-skiing scene near the beginning).

The only new scene that works is the introduction of Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall). The charisma of this air calvary colonel in all his swaggering glory is perfectly showcased in this brief snippet; but the scene's so brief it's unessential.

The four main new scenes definitely DON'T work: The scenes involving the theft of Kilgore's surfboard are silly, badly scripted and unnecessary. In fact, they ruin Kilgore's perfect swan song in the original. These scenes reveal a goofy side to Willard that ruin his grim mystique in the original.

The additional bunny sequence during the rain storm is also silly and unnecessary; it's a huge letdown even if your sole desire is to see some more skin.

The longest added sequence involves the French plantation mentioned in the documentary "Hearts of Darkness - A Filmmaker's Apocalypse." Small bits of this piece work and enrich the film (like the ghostly discovery of the plantation), but on a whole it's too long & talky (where it's impossible to understand the heavily-accented dialogue without subtitles) and simply drags the film down (the original never dragged).

The final added scene that is unnecessary and reduces the potency of the original film is the sequence involving Kurtz (Marlon Brando) reading a couple Time magazine articles to the caged Willard. This is the FIRST and ONLY time in the picture that we get to see Kurtz CLEARLY in broad daylight, and it destroys the great mystique of the character that was so perfectly built up in the original. In this scene we plainly observe that Kurtz is just some fat dude in the jungle suffering a mild case of madness. (No offense to overweight people).

So, the only scenes that work are the brief introduction of Kilgore and a couple aspects of the French Plantation sequence; the vast majority of the new footage and editorial changes only serve to mar an awe-inspiring masterpiece. Needless to say, Coppola made the right choices in his original 1979 edit of the film. This new footage should have been relegated to the "deleted scenes" section of the DVD. It makes no sense that Coppola would insert these lousy scenes into his phenomenal picture. Maybe he just wanted to re-visit a past glory. Unfortunately he ruined it in the process.

Fans of "Apocalypse Now" MUST see the added footage, we have no choice; if this is the case, it's worth picking up the DVD, but be forewarned -- you will be disappointed. If by chance you're not familiar with "Apocalypse Now," skip "Redux" and see the original asap.

"Apocalypse Now" is a 10/10 picture; "Redux" brings it down to a near-godawful 5/10.
