Movie Reviews

  • unsurprisingly given its origins, no "fog of war" exists here, just brave Georgian soldiers and helpless citizens facing Russians whose rogue, tattooed gunmen happily shoot grandmothers without provocation
    1 of 4 by John DeFore [Washington Post ]
  • undeniably often impressive, with its hundreds of extras and carefully staged battle tableaux, but "staged" is the operative word, as these scenes often look too pictorially arranged to have much real-life immediacy
    by David Noh [Film Journal International ]
  • the drama has some exhilarating moments, but they're dampened by concessions to conventionally bloviating music, overly theatrical dialogue and inadvertently comic slo-mo
    by John Anderson [Variety ]
  • should appeal more to those who like to watch stuff blow up than understand exactly why the carnage is transpiring
    1.5 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • shamelessly cliched
    by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice ]
  • is neither innovative nor profound, but it is kinetic, visceral and sometimes moving
    by Mark Jenkins [NPR ]
  • a completely awful, straight-to-video action thriller
    0.5 of 4 by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine ]
