Recognised as the inspiration for Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket Boys of Company C is a high-end member of the cannon of classic battle-field movies and a frighteningly realistic critique of the pointlessness and corruption universally associated with the US/Vietnam war. Boys of Company C follows the lives of five nave young Marine inductees from their training in boot camp through a tour in Vietnam that quickly devolves into a hellish nightmare. Disheartened by futile combat appalled by the corruption of their South Vietnamese ally and constantly endangered by the incompetence of their own company commander the young men find a possible way out of the war. They are told that if they can defeat a rival soccer team they can spend the rest of their tour playing exhibition games behind the lines. But as they might have predicted nothing in Vietnam is as simple as it seems.
