A superb ensemble falls in for Kubrick’s brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. The scathing indictment of a film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay (1988). Pvt. J.T. 'Joker' Davis (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Pvt. Leonard 'Gomer Pyle' Lawrence (Vincent D’Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood) and Pvt. Cowboy (Arliss Howard) are some of the Marine recruits experiencing boot-camp hell under the punishing command of the foul-mouthed Gny. Sgt. Hartman (R. Lee Ermey). The action is savage, the story unsparing, and the dialogue is spiked with scathing humor, as the raw grit and brutal drama of the Vietnam War comes through loud and clear. Special Features:
    • Commentary by Adam Baldwin, Vincent D’Onofrio, R. Lee Ermey and critic/screenwriter Jay Cocks
    • Documentary – “Stanley Kubrick’s Boxes” (new to DVD)
    • Featurette – “Full Metal Jacket: Between Good and Evil”
    • Theatrical Trailer
