Full Metal Jacket
Privates "Joker", "Cowboy" and "Gomer Pyle" struggle to adapt to life as trainee soldiers, and the dedication demanded from Drill Sergeant Hartman as part of their basic training doesn't help. Pyle is seriously overweight, and starts to break down pyschologically under the pressure of battle training, resulting in his traumatic suicide. "From now on until the day you die, wherever you are, every Marine is your brother. Most of you will go to Vietnam. Some of you will not come back." Years later, the platoon have all moved on to their various military occupations. However, as the North Vietnamese Army fight back in an incredible new offensive taking place across the country, the trainees are forced back together - to fight for their lives.
