The definitive version of Francis Ford Coppola’s storied Vietnam War opus follows a soldier sent to assassinate a rogue colonel.

Striking a balance between the original theatrical cut (on which he deemed to have made concessions) and the redux (which added all of the deleted material back in), Final Cut is Coppola’s last word on Apocalypse Now. With a 4K restoration featuring a brand new sound mix, Apocalypse Now: Final Cut is abound with psychedelic imagery and a deep, nightmarish soundscape.

Take a ride up river with Martin Sheen’s Captain Willard and a cast that includes Lawrence Fishburne, Robert Duvall, Harrison Ford, Dennis Hopper and Marlon Brando as the monolithic Colonel Kurtz.
