Year, production: 1989, USA

Directed by: Oliver Stone

Runtime: 145 min.

This is a biography of Ron Kovic. He was paralyzed in the Vietnam war after he was shoot. When he came back he became anti-war activist. He just thought that he is betrayed by his country for which he fought.

This movie is not a typical war movie, more like a drama but I think it should be here. There is not much fight and shooting. It is about the changes of Ron Kovic (Tom Cruise) after war. For me it is another great movie about vietnam war just after Platoon. It is also consider as a second part of Oliver Stone's vietnam war trilogy. First is Platoon and the third is Heaven & Earth.
