Born on the 4th of July is an intriguing Vietnam War film

What: Movie review

Oliver Stone directs this film that was one of the staples of an early Tom Cruise, before his Mission Impossible days and Scientology. Cruise is actually simply amazing in this film, and he no doubt carries this movie as its clear Stone has found a perfect leading man. Cruise's passion and acting lets you truly experience what his character as a Vietnam war vet is actually thinking and feeling. He was unfortunately robbed for the Oscar for this one and should have deserved it.

Grade: B+
