The film begins with Martin Sheen’s character, a drunk Captain Willard, sprawled out on the floor in a Saigon hotel room. Willard has been crying, after reviewing the experiences of war within his mind. The viewer is soon informed that Captain Willard had been assigned a special assignment for the government, to be an assassin for the American military. He was to travel into Cambodia by river and kill Colonel Walter Kurtz, an ex-Special Forces officer who had now lost his mind. Willard then proceeds to travels upriver in a small patrol boat, accompanied by a small band of soldiers. Chief (Albert Hall) is found to be in charge of the boat, while the other men have smaller roles on the boat, Chef (Frederick Forrest), Lance (Sam Bottoms), and Clean (Laurence Fishburne). The scene closes with the camera focused on Willard, who is thinking about how ridiculous he finds his mission; the killing of Kurtz is apparently a very important issue to the Army, even though, as he reflects, “charging a man with murder in this place was like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500”. Throughout the boat’s journey upstream, the men are faced with very bizarre situations. They watch a Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall) completely destroy a Vietnamese village with his cavalry unit, who utters his famous line that he “loves napalm in the morning”. Later on, the men come across a Playboy Bunny stage show, where three Bunnies are performing for soldiers. Their journey continues, until they are confronted with a sampan (a small, flat-bottom open boat) and the crew suspects the Vietnamese family on board to be smuggling supplies for the VC. Clean uses his machine gun to kill the all but one of the small boat’s passengers after one of the Vietnamese men proceeds to move towards a basket on the other end of the boat. The crew discovers that the basket merely contains a small puppy. Chief argues to bring the lone survivor to safety, yet Willard disagrees with the idea, and ends the argument by shooting the woman in the head. Eventually, the boat reaches the Cambodian border, where Kurtz is finally found. At this point, Kurtz had rounded up a very large number of tribesmen, all who regarded him as their leader. The tribesmen kill Clean and Chief, but Willard and the rest of the crew escape to find Col. Kurtz. Upon encountering Kurtz, Willard discovers that Kurtz had gone insane. After a very heated and intense dialogue between Willard and Kurtz, Willard uses his machete to murder the mentally instable Kurtz. Willard then leaves to go back downriver, where the last takes of the film is focused on the remainder of Kurtz’s life, who is whispering “the horror, the horror” as he stares off into space.
