Watch Platoon (1986) Online
Charlie Sheen leads Oliver Stone's emotional ground assault as a teenage college drop-out who volunteers to serve as a "grunt" in the US Army in Vietnam. In Sheen's best performance, we see his psychological disintegration as he witnesses atrocities and becomes caught in the power struggle between a pair of veteran sergeants (Willem Dafoe and Tom Berenger) when one of them precipitates a massacre of villagers. Based on Stone's own experiences and the winner of four Oscars including Best Picture, this is a sobering corrective to John Wayne's flag-waving The Green Berets.
