REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this is a movie about an irrelevant skirmish that ended in near-total catastrophe, during a war we are not winning..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..there's still no real character here, and no point to the movie, outside of the obvious resilience and courage of the men involved. That's worth celebrating, sure - but even more, it's worth truly dramatizing, which requires some thought and dialogue..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..the movie seems more concerned with military-style action than with telling us who these fallen heroes really were..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
