Still brilliant but mixed feelingsBy imran (165 reviews) from London , 06 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Even though I think the original film has been diluted due to the expansion of the Brando and Sheen characters, and with the addition of even more surreal and maybe slightly contrived stop-offs for the riverboat crew, there's no denying that rarely in the relatively short history of director's cuts has there been such an exciting expansion of a classic movie like there has been in Redux. I'm still not sure which version I prefer but I am one hundred percent sure the extra scenes were worth seeing. An absolute must for fans of the original.

Not what it says on the tinBy Munkki (54 reviews) from London , 21 Jan 2012This it is not the Redux version of the film. It's the original cinematic release with the Redux ending without the airstrike bolted on
"you understand that this mission will never exist"By Kw54 (44 reviews) from London , 15 Jan 2012So begins Captain Willard's journey up the Nung River in the remote Cambodian Jungle and possibly the most self contained and cool performance in cinema.
Released in 1979 it took 3 years of production to make, is Capolla's best film, the best film of the Vietnam War and its a
must see film by an American film maker.
Note the use of T. S Eliot's poetry,the Doors music and the sound montage by Walter Murch.
Have seen Apocalypse Now a few times since it's release and am not sure if I can remember the different cut versions there have been but I can remember all the scenes and hear all the lines of the screenplay.
This might probably be the best print of the original 1979 version.

Amazing on Blu RayBy Dalbito (6 reviews) from Manchester , 06 Jan 2012One of my favoutite films and I've seen a few different versions of it over the years, but this Blu Ray edition is stunning.
The colours and detail in the original photography really show through and you can really appreciate the shear effort that went into making this film.
Add to this the inclusion of the extra footage and it makes for a great night's viewing.
(if you're too young to remember the Vietnam War, Wiki it first and you'll enjoy the film a lot more)
The Future of CinemaBy a customer , 06 Nov 2011Stupendous it shakes you out of your comfort zone and inspires you in ways you never thought possible.
This is a different type of movie; along the likes of cinemas most bizarre films; Black Biscuit (Fabrizio Federico), Tarnation (Jonathan Caouette), and Performance (Donald Cammell).
Both Beautiful and spellbinding - A must see.
