    Excellent movie

    This is such a great and classic movie. It’s been a number of years since I saw it last, but this is the best it has ever looked. The picture quality looks fantastic in 4K. Very clean and detailed image especially in the first half. The second half of the movie has a little more grain, but still looks great. HDR brings new life to the scenes and makes this look like it was recently filmed. The SteelBook looks awesome as well.

    Solid 4k transfer

    Solid 4k transfer here. Slight layer of grain throughout. Some shots were a bit more focused than others, but that is mostly due to directors intent. The 4k PQ seems to improve as the film goes on. Im very happy with this transfer. Very smooth with all the scratches and tears patched up. I wouldnt demo this disc if im trying to show off my panel, but it does make the film look good.

    I love the movie but I hated my shipping experience. The movie came to my house and the case was cracked as was the disc itself so I had to return it.

    Whole Movie is a War Classic

    Almost everyone who has seen Full Metal Jacket loves the first half in basic training, with R. Lee Ermey as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman destroying and building back up young men into vicious killers, and the consequential mental breakdown of Private Leonard "Gomer Pyle" Lawrence, played fantastically by Vincent D'Onofrio. Half of viewers then tune out in the second half, when the protagonist, Private "Joker", is deployed to Vietnam, as it's much slower and bleaker. While it is no "Apocalypse Now", the second half does a great job of showing the results of the Vietnam War on both Vietnam the country and the psyches of combatants on both sides. In 4K with HDR, the details of the sets and outdoor shots give the film an even better look than before. If you watched it before and only remember liking the first half, I suggest giving it another shot. If you've never seen it before, behind "The Shining" it makes for a pretty good intro movie into Stanley Kubrick's filmography.

    Probably one of the best Vietnam War based movies. Have had Marine Corps ‘Nam vets tell me the boot camp 1/2 of the movie was fairly realistic. That is probably due to the late R Lee Ermey’s performance. Definitely a movie you can watch again and again.

    Excellent 4K HDR Remaster

    |
    Posted .

    Great detail and color throughout the movie. Expect film grain and some intermittent softness considering this was shot on film over 30 years ago. HDR is not noticeable in the Parris Island scenes since there is not much that needs HDR. The only time it is noticeable is at the very end when Matthew Modine uses his flashlight when he gets fire watch duty. However, HDR is definitely an improvement for the scenes which take place in Vietnam. Most noticeable when fires and explosion occur. The sound quality is very good in terms of clarity of dialog and sound effects. There is some use of low frequency effects (when there is an explosion for example). There is no atmos which is a little disappointing. If you are fan of this movie, you should definitely have this in your collection.

    Full Metal Jacket has always been one of my favorite Vietnam era movies. Now, it can really be enjoyed with the full HD 4K! I am impressed how well it looks now and sounds. We can really here Drill Sergeant R. Lee Ermey now. lol The 4K is fabulous and we get the blu-ray copy of it as well. Anyone who is a fan of the movie, get this one! This one has a nice slipcover.

    FULL METAL 4K

    This 4K of Full Metal Jacket looks better to me than my blu-ray from 2011 (and that disc still looks good to me) and that's why you upgrade, right? The movie itself is not a pretty picture and it never will be, so in order to justify the upgrade you need a good reason and the best reason is it's a Stanley Kubrick movie. As a fan I'm more than willing to upgrade but did I get my moneys worth? I personally think so. This 4K is rich in details and bold color schemes and the black levels look so much better. I'm satisfied I made the right choice and upgraded. I can't tell if the included blu-ray is the same as the 2011 disc I already have. It doesn't matter anyway because I'll probably never watch it again. It will make a cool coaster I guess.

    A classic brought to life again in 4K. Watch it while you're eating a jelly doughnut for a full experience. Will not disappoint.

    A classic Vietnam war movie, but can be polarizing. This release is excellent and the movie looks amazing. There are not any new special features from the previous release, but this is still an excellent presentation.

    What can I say it's 4k. Got it just to try my new LG 4K player. Sound lags some what on play back only of this movie in my player. The first half is the best. Gunny sergeant is one tuff cookie.

    It’s been a good year for Kubrick. 2001, The Shining, & now Full Metal Jacket. Fantastic 4k transfer, definitely worth upgrading from the blu ray. Only a few more releases to go for a full 4k Kubrick collection!

    Stanley Kubrick's Vietnam war masterpiece

    If you're not familiar with Full Metal Jacket then I'd strongly encourage a watch. It's surprisingly not as brutal as other war films but that's not to say it isn't action packet because the second half certainly is. It's basically a story about humanity that shows how people in war are treated and dehumanized to become killing machines. Masterfully made with nice steelbook packaging courtesy of Best Buy. One note would be the paint on my disc was very fresh and made the top not smooth and when I received a replacement it had the same issue. This never happened to me with a 4K disc or BestBuy exclusive steelbook before so hopefully never happens again.

    Another top notch 4K release from Stanley Kubrick

    The movies of Stanley Kubrick occupy a very high position in my hierarchy of great movies. So far all of Kubrick's movies which have been given the 4K treatment have been superlative. This one is no exception. The biggest difference for me is in the colors and of course the clarity and definition are superb. The audio is also noticeably improved from the last bluray release. I highly recommend this release even if you already have it in standard 1080p. it's a worthy investment if you love this movie.
