It’s time for a new entry into the pantheon of scenes that KICK ASS. The theory behind this post is this…

Some movies have a scene in them that is so awesome it can make the whole film worth watching. A scene that can make a bad film good and a great film better. A scene so good that it KICKS ASS… hence the title of the post. This week, we are featuring a clip from the movie:

Be warned… some may consider this clip a bit graphic. There are around 20 minutes of scenes that build up to this moment in the film but this is the payoff. Proof that Vincent D’Onofrio is one hell of an actor, I give you the greatest scene in a hell of a film by one of the greatest directors to tackle the medium. Enjoy!

That’s it for now, Numb-Nuts. Feel free to comment below. I never edit any of the comments. Remember, this was meant to be an interactive site, as much as I love the sound of my own voice.

    Oh. My. God. I’ve tried for years to stuff this scene waaaaaaaaaaaaay down in my subconscious, and here you brought it up again. Thanks, Kaiderman. Thanks a heap!

    No, really, this is the best scene of the whole film for me. Vincent D’Onofrio always gave me the creeps, but after this I couldn’t even look at him without wanting duck and cover.

  3. What the hell happened to my comment?? I would have sworn I typed up something earlier. Anyways, love the scene and love the entire first half when they are in bootcamp. I do feel the movie is slightly less engaging in the second half once they get to Vietnam although there is a bunch of memorable sequences there as well.

    • Yeah… it is 2 movies and the first is superior but a great little film none-the-less… have to say is probably my favorite Kubrick along with Clockwork!

    I love that scene. It was so disturbing, but you knew it was going to happen. Get write up.

  5. I have to concede, I like Full Metal Jacket, but I don’t think it’s as awesome as the other “great” Vietnam films – Platoon, Apocalypse Now, etc. But yes, that scene is terrifying.
