Apocalypse Now (1979)

I was expecting the Apocalypse to happen any time soon during this movie. Sadly, the movie sputtered like a downed helicopter towards the end. I was really enjoying it up until about the middle of the film. Francis Ford Coppola’s shots were amazing, Martin Sheen was young and brilliant. Harrison Ford and Laurence Fisburne even had some parts in the movie. I just couldn’t stand the final scenes of the movie as it devolved into some weird 70’s philosophical drivel. You get all worked up to see Marlon Brando and then the whole thing just feels like a letdown. I gave most of the points to the movie for its first half as it is an incredible war moving taking place in Vietnam. Sometimes I think Coppola’s methods can be unsound.

73/100
