Is Full Metal Jacket really that bad?
 
Just purchased Full Metal Jacket on a whim while at best buy.. Got home and checked the reviews... pretty freaken horrible.

Is the movie really that bad? I've never seen it nor do i own it on dvd. I havn't opened it and am debateing returning it and getting chronicles of riddick instead.. Anyone have this movie?

IMO, Full Metal Jacket is one of the best Vietnam war movies ever. First, 30-45 minutes is a classic. Superb performance by R Lee Ermey. Watch it asap.

its a good movie , i have it on DVD , the HD quality probably isnt good (from review) so i say get the DVD version, its cheaper, or just keep it if you have some extra bucks

Wheater they agree or not. The HD version is going to look better than the DVD counterpart. The movie it self, a classic.

It was ann early rental for me. HD quality is almost the 5th Element of HD DVD.

Well, maybe that bad, but at BB prices, rent first. ;)

I have this movie and while the video quality isnt the greatest it is definatly watchable. Much better than the DVD. I would keep it. It is a great movie and this is the best version of it available.

Full Metal Jacket is a great war movie but not Kubrick's best work. As for the PQ, it's poor but watchable. I would've liked a better picture, but I also wouldn't return such a great war classic. It's in the likes of Apocalypse Now!

Personally Full Metal Jacket is my favourite Vietnam movie of all time......I haven't checked out the HD-DVD simply because of the reviews however :(

This is a fine example of how far reaching and influential, the never ending smatter and chatter of online "reviews" can be.

Oh, never mind.............I give up. It's a waste of my valuable time.
