    Quite a Package

    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    The original theatrical release, plus Redux, and then the documentary by Francis Ford Coppola‘s spouse, providing fabulous insights into the making of Apocalypse Now. What’s not to like here? As Robert Duvall’s character , Lt. Col. Kilgore entones, in almost wistful despair, at the end of his oft-quoted monologue about the virtues of napalm, “You know, someday this war goin’ to end”. Fortunately, with two discs to savor, that moment takes awhile for the viewer to reckon with. And of course for my generation, the tragedy of Southeast Asia, 1945–75, lives on. Coppola captures the madness tone perfect.

    Apocalypse Now

    If you couldn't get the full disclosure edition or need a good packaging of a bona fide classic, this is it. Vietnam hits hard with one of the best docs about filmmaking as a supplement.

    the deleted scenes are the big thing, and so is the directors cut, these where never seen by the general public and had a new spin to the movie. This movie went way over budget in those days. Incredible realistic no computer movie for a war buff even shown in schools when compared to the heart of darkness book

    If You Love This Movie...

    This two-disc set includes the theatrical release and the Redux version released by Francis Ford Coppola in 2001, which restores 49 minutes of scenes cut from the original film. Also included is "Hearts of Darkness," a full length documentary on the Herculean task of making the film. With the current studio practice of making the safe bet and sticking with Marvel sequels, a film like Apocalypse Now would never be made. If you're a fan of this movie, this is a good buy.

    Three films & one disc of special features

    |
    Posted .

    Yes, this is a 3 disc set. Yes, it has Apocalypse Now, Apocalypse Now Redux, and Hearts of Darkness, but those features do not take up one disc each. Both versions of Apocalypse Now are on Disc 1. These are the full versions, NOT broken up like they were on The Complete Dossier! Commentaries on the films. Disc 2 is Hearts of Darkness with commentary by Eleanor and Francis Ford Coppola as well as a storyboard gallery and marketing archive. I have not seen in either the product description or reviews about any special features. That's Disc 3. There are a lot of special features on here. I'm not going to list them all, but many of them were on The Complete Dossier, but there are a lot of new stuff on here too. So the Full Disclosure Blu-ray is definitely worth the price and deserves a place in your library.

    So good. I have everything from Saving Private Ryan, Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, Band of Brothers, the Pacific, Pearl Harbor, Valkyrie, even more. But Apocalypse Now? The most gripping movie of them all.

    One of the greatest films of all time. Francis Ford Coppola masterful adapts Heart of Darkness into a Vietnam setting in a film filled with amazing performances and writing.

    This film is a true classic right from the beginning to end. The movie tells the story of how it really was and with Marlin Brando, ??? what else can I say, Best Buy has it in stock and for the price paid ( Under $10.00 ) you can't go wrong, also this BluRay comes with three discs two special features + the movie.

    I watch Apocalypse Now Redux the other night. It has scenes that are not in the theater version (which is also included in this set). And this set also have "Hearts of Darkness" which I haven't watched yet but what a great deal! I love this movie and it's in Blueray so the cinematography is stunning!

    Three films and all worth watching

    Great movie. Like getting the two versions together and the feature length documentary is worth the price of this set by itself. The making of this movie is at least, if not more interesting than the movie itself. Brando was certainly going off the deep end at this point and the documentary shows it. If you want to really see what he can do to a film, check out the Island of Doctor Moreau documentary sometime. Crazy stuff. This set is certainly worth owning and I enjoyed the redux version, which I just watched for the first time.

    One of my all time favorite movies. I've had the standard definition version for quite a while but after playing it on my new LG OLED it really showed the low def. While the Blu-ray version is much better it still shows it is an older movie. I was really surprised at the additional footage contained in the Redux version. All good scenes that should have been included in the original but were cut to decrease total run time. As a bonus the "hearts of darkness" disk shows the making of the film and the difficulties they had. Great buy for the price. Only gave it 4 stars as the film quality wasn't as good as modern blu-rays.

    One of the best movies of all-time

    Aside from the original, brilliant theatrical version of Apocalypse Now, this also includes the longer "Redux" cut (which includes scenes that aren't very necessary but are certainly at the very least interesting). But, more than that, the excellent "making-of" document "Hearts of Darkness" is also included, which is an incredibly rewarding look at this amazing film (much of which was shot during filming, catching unexpected and candid glimpses at the turmoil behind the scenes). A great purchase.

    I enjoyed this film in the theater a long time ago. It's been rejuvenated on home video for me to enjoy once more. I didn't see anything in the home video that I didn't see in the theater, however.

    This is a great movie for anyone who enjoys action films. The blu-ray detail is amazing. Much clearer than the orginal film. A good way to spend a rainy afternoon watching as the movie is quite long.

    Both the feature film and the Redux version look great on Blu Ray. The extra special features disc has the making of movie Heart of Darkness, an in depth look at almost every aspect from genesis to release.
