REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..without planting such cultural signposts, the film hardly scratches Abu Ghraib's surface..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]
“..when the fadeout hinges on those highly public revelations, it becomes clear the pic hasn't provided enough insight to understand such widespread, pervasive abuse..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
“..movies about war have no business being this pointless and boring..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..compared to that harrowing documentary, Boys of Abu Ghraib looks like a protracted stay at a crummy summer camp..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
2.5 of 5

“.."Boys of Abu Ghraib" becomes unbearable as it misses salient points on external influences and innate barbarism, preferring to pack such an explosion of behavior into a "Twilight Zone"-style sucker punch finale..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]
