Considered to be one of the greatest war movies ever made, Full Metal Jacket displays director Stanley Kubrick’s mastery, like many of his other films. Based the novel The Short-Timers,  by Gustav Hasford, the story is about a platoon of US marines at a boot camp where Sergeant Hartman (Lee Ermey) job is to train the youngsters in the most harsh conditions. While the first half of the film covers the training, the second is about the war itself. The film also has two extraordinary performances by Matthew Modine and Lee Ermey.
