Movie Reviews

  • this is a movie about an irrelevant skirmish that ended in near-total catastrophe, during a war we are not winning
    2 of 4 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
    2.5 of 4 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
    2 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • Lone Survivor just reads like a quasi-political exaggeration of a slasher film
    Review rate : C by Amy Nicholson [L.A. Weekly ]
  • it is a modest, competent, effective movie, concerned above all with doing the job of explaining how the job was done
    by A.O. Scott [NY Times ]
  • isn't your standard Christmas fare, but the story is nothing short of miraculous
    3 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
  • is perhaps the most grueling and sustained American combat picture since "Black Hawk Down," as well as a prime example of how impressive physical filmmaking can overcome even fundamental deficiencies in script and characterization
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
  • Berg may be adhering to the basic facts, but his movie's childish machismo is a disgrace to all involved
    1 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • an intense look at 19 American deaths and one survival in a vividly re-created chapter of the fighting in Afghanistan
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
