After his tour of duty in the Vietnam War ended in , Oliver Stone wrote a screenplay called Break, a semi-autobiographical account detailing his experiences with his parents and his time in the Vietnam War.
Stone's active duty service resulted in a "big change" in how he viewed life and the war. Although the screenplay Break was never produced, he later used it as the basis for Platoon.
Break featured several characters who were the seeds of those he developed in Platoon. The script was set to music from The Doors ; Stone sent the script to Jim Morrison in the hope he would play the lead.
Morrison never responded, but his manager returned the script to Stone shortly after Morrison's death; Morrison had the script with him when he died in Paris.
Although Break was never produced, Stone decided to attend film school. After writing several other screenplays in the early s, Stone worked with Robert Bolt on the screenplay, The Cover-up it was not produced.
Bolt's rigorous approach rubbed off on Stone. The younger man used his characters from the Break screenplay and developed a new screenplay, which he titled Platoon.
Producer Martin Bregman attempted to elicit studio interest in the project, but was not successful. Stone claims that during that time, Sidney Lumet was to have helmed the film with Al Pacino slated to star had there been studio interest.
The film was a critical and commercial success, as were some other Stone films at the time, but most studios were still reluctant to finance The Platoon, because it was about the unpopular Vietnam War.
After the release of The Deer Hunter and Apocalypse Now , the studios then cited the perception that these films were considered the pinnacle of the Vietnam War film genre as reasons not to make Platoon.
Stone responded by attempting to break into mainstream direction via the easier-to-finance horror genre, but The Hand failed at the box office, and he began to think The Platoon would never be made.
According to Stone, Cimino attempted to produce The Platoon in De Laurentiis secured financing for Platoon, but he struggled to find a distributor.
Because De Laurentiis had already spent money sending Stone to the Philippines to scout for locations, he decided to keep control of the film's script until he was repaid.
Once again, this was a project that Stone had struggled to secure financing for, but Daly loved the script and was prepared to finance both Salvador and The Platoon.
Stone shot Salvador first, before turning his attention to what was by now called Platoon. Platoon was filmed on the island of Luzon in the Philippines starting in February The production was almost canceled because of the political upheaval in the country , due to then-president Ferdinand Marcos.
With the help of well-known Asian producer Mark Hill, the shoot commenced, as scheduled, two days after Marcos fled the country.
The production made a deal with the Philippine military for the use of military equipment. Scenes were shot in Mount Makiling for the forest scenes , Cavite for the river and village scenes , and Villamor Air Base near Manila.
James Woods , who had starred in Stone's film Salvador , was offered a part in Platoon. Despite his friendship with the director, he turned it down, later saying he "couldn't face going into another jungle with [Oliver Stone]".
Denzel Washington expressed interest in playing the role of Elias. He believes Costner turned down the role "because his brother had been in Vietnam.
Upon arrival in the Philippines, the cast was sent on an intensive training course, during which they had to dig foxholes and were subjected to forced marches and nighttime "ambushes," which used special-effects explosions.
Led by Vietnam War veteran Dale Dye , training put the principal actors—including Sheen, Dafoe, Depp and Whitaker—through an immersive day military-style training regimen.
They limited how much food and water they could drink and eat and when the actors slept, fired blanks to keep the tired actors awake.
Stone said that he was trying to break them down, "to mess with their heads so we could get that dog-tired, don't give a damn attitude, the anger, the irritation It wasn't going to kill people, but you felt comfortable with it.
Marine Corps Vietnam War veteran who also served as the film's technical advisor. The film score was by Georges Delerue. During a scene in the "Underworld", the soldiers sing along to " The Tracks of My Tears " by Smokey Robinson and The Miracles , which was also featured in the film's trailer.
Platoon was released in the United States on December 19, and in the Philippines  and the United Kingdom in March , with its release in the latter receiving an above 15 rating for strong language, scenes of violence, and soft drug use.
It was released again on VHS in by Polygram Filmed Entertainment who briefly held the rights to the film through its purchase of the Epic library.
Factory on Blu-Ray. The site's critical consensus reads, "Informed by director Oliver Stone's personal experiences in Vietnam, Platoon forgoes easy sermonizing in favor of a harrowing, ground-level view of war, bolstered by no-holds-barred performances from Charlie Sheen and Willem Dafoe.
Roger Ebert gave it four out of four stars, calling it the best film of the year, and the ninth best of the s. The movie crowds you; it doesn't leave you room for an honest emotion.
Although the film was the subject of critical acclaim, it received some criticism for its depiction of African-American soldiers in Vietnam.
Wallace Terry , a black journalist who spent a two-year tour in Vietnam and wrote a Time cover story in called The Negro in Vietnam , which concerned the experiences of African American troops during the war, publicly criticised the film in an interview with Maria Wilhelm of People magazine, calling its depiction of black troops "a slap in the face".
In the interview, Terry noted that there were no black soldiers depicted as officers, and the three notable black soldiers in the film were all portrayed as cowards.
He further went on to criticise the film for perpetuating black stereotypes , stating the film "barely rises above the age-old Hollywood stereotypes of blacks as celluloid savages and coons who do silly things.
