#fullmetaljacket :🌟🌟🌟🌟:A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.
One scene cut from the movie showed a group of Marines playing soccer. The scene was cut because a shot revealed they were kicking a human head, not a soccer ball.
During filming, a family of rabbits were accidentally killed. Stanley Kubrick, an animal lover, was so upset that he canceled the rest of the day's work.
This was Stanley Kubrick's first film edited by computer rather than linearly spliced film.
Denzel Washington was considered for the role of Eightball and has said that it is a role that he regrets missing out on.
Arnold Schwarzenegger turned down the role of Animal Mother in order to star in The Running Man (1987). The cast ate actual Vietnam War era military rations in the scene when the patrol is seen eating.
R. Lee Ermey said he felt Vincent D' Onofrio's performance was the best in the film.
A few of the insults used in the basic training scenes were also used in Stand By Me (1986). The bathroom mop scene between Joker and Cowboy took 62 takes to complete. However, Cowboy's death scene took only 5 takes.
Animal Mother: You a photographer?
Private Joker: I'm a combat correspondent.
Animal Mother: Well, you seen much combat?
Private Joker: [sarcastic] I've seen a little on TV.
Animal Mother: You're a real comedian.
Private Joker: Well, they call me the Joker.
Animal Mother: Well I got a joke for you. I'm gonna tear you a new asshole.
Private Joker: [doing John Wayne impression] Well, pilgrim, only after you eat the peanuts out of my shit!
Animal Mother: You talk the talk. Do you walk the walk? .
