Directed by Barry Levinson and written by Mitch Markowitz, Good Morning, Vietnam is a drama and hilarious movie where a new disc jockey is sent from Crete all the way to Vietnam to bring fun and happiness to the Armed Forces Radio. He does all he can for the armed forces, including visiting soldiers, when he is off air. Gradually a lot of people start liking him not only because he is an excellent jockey but also because he brings the soldiers back to life.
Critics believe that this levinson drama movie about Vietnam has been a star vehicle for Robin Williams who gave just the right performance. The movie has been highly recommended because of its comedic output and its power to bring out the message, and if you’ve not watched this movie in a while, you should consider picking it up.
Audiences believe that Robin Williams has done absolute justice to the film and if not for him; the movie surely would not have been a success. The movie was sensitive and strong and the message reached out clearly. Forest Whitaker also did justice to his role in the movie along with Tung Thanh Tran. It’s a must see movie and an all time favorite.
