During the Vietnam War, a U.S. Army special ops officer is dispatched to assassinate a renegade Colonel. Redux is an extended version and significant re-edit of Francis Ford Coppola's epic war film originally released in 1979.
Being a huge war film fan. I was more than willing to watch this one...largely due to its status as a classic. This movie has a great story line, however its dragged out pain-stakingly too long, to a rather strange but clever ending. The first hour and a half of Apocalypse Now is all but tasteless.It is pretty much loaded with all the makings of an excellent movie. Action, Suspense, Mystery, and even some pretty comedic scenes. And the Helicopter scenes with the HUEYS were very impressive. But just be prepared to drink a red bull, and focus. Because once the movie enters the stage of Martin Sheen Stealing Robert DuValls surfboard to head up river to carry out his mission. You may need some extra umpf to get you to the ending of this movie...And dont watch this movie if your affended by curse words...after all it is a war film.
