The Deer Hunter (1978)

Normally you’d have to put a gun to my head to watch a 3 hour long Vietnam War movie, but this was pretty good. I would say my biggest problem with the film was the extremely lengthy Wedding scene at the beginning. I didn’t time it, but it felt like it was almost 40 minutes long and it was a lot of shouting, yelling and cheering with bad sound quality so all the lines were pretty much getting lost. Once it got to the war parts the movie gets a lot better. There are a lot of really hard scenes to watch but the acting coming from De Niro and Walken is top notch.It was also interesting seeing Meryl Streep so young in this movie, she was pretty adorable and put on a good performance. I don’t know if I’ll ever watch this movie again, but I am glad I saw it once.

82/100
