REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film works best when it slows down..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..the performance scale operates in shades of combat shoutiness, manly wryness and wounded suffering..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
“..dedicated to French servicemen and wartime journalists, "Special Forces" aims to inspire but ends up wallowing in melodrama..”
by Andy Webster [New York Times]
