Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now in its 40th year presents a new, never-before-seen restored version of the film. The new film Apocalypse Now Final Cut, has been remastered and is the director's perfect version

In Vietnam in 1970, Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) takes a perilous and increasingly hallucinatory journey upriver to find and terminate Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), a once-promising officer who has reportedly gone completely mad. In the company of a Navy patrol boat filled with street-smart kids, a surfing-obsessed Air Cavalry officer (Robert Duvall), and a crazed freelance photographer (Dennis Hopper), Willard travels further and further into the heart of darkness.

A must-see theatrical experience Hollywood Reporter

Apocalypse Now is not merely the greatest film to come out of the Vietnam experience but one of the great works about the madness of our times. ★★★★★ The Guardian

The film has one of the most haunting endings in cinema, a poetic evocation of what Kurtz has discovered, and what we hope not to discover for ourselves. ★★★★★ Roger Ebert
