A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.
One scene cut from the movie showed a group of Marines playing soccer. The scene was cut because a shot revealed they were kicking a human head, not a soccer ball.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir". Do you maggots understand that?
Recruits: Sir, yes Sir.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Bullshit I can't hear ...
It is obvious that Pvt Joker at the beginning of the Tet Offensive when he enters the bunker, he is loading his .50 caliber machine gun with blanks. This is all the more obvious when he fires at the suicide truck and the VC entering the gate after, there are no tracer rounds or bullet impact hits behind his targets.
