Later in Vietnam, U.S. Captain Martin Sheen was ordered to go up the Mekong River to search for Colonel Kotz (Marlon Brando), who had established his own kingdom in Cambodia from the U.S. Army, and bring him back. or kill. Captain Coates was once a hero of the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War, with great military exploits. However, one day suddenly, he disappeared. Subsequently, intelligence pointed out that he had established his own kingdom in Cambodia, his own army, specifically against the U.S. military.
Willard and several soldiers went all the way up the river. On the way, they witnessed all kinds of atrocities, killings, and witnessed the mental distortion and abnormal behavior of both American soldiers and local people in the long war. I felt a great shock.
Willard was finally captured by local people in the kingdom of Kotz, Cambodia, and met Kotz. However, Kotz wanted to die and asked Willard to blow it up to the ground… Broad bean
