What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Laura Bushell An emotionally intense film which conveys the human toll of this war on terror.
Adam Nayman It respects the sacrifices of the battlefield and differentiates between criticizing the war and those who fight it.
James Berardinelli It is likely destined for the scrap pile of Iraq war movies whose well intentioned homilies have been betrayed by their dramatic inertness.
Peter Travers Here's the first major movie of the new year that touches greatness, and damn if there isn't a curse hanging over it.
C. Fuchs As it stands for yours truly, however, it's all competently done (despite wading into some melodrama in the second half), but the lack of personal resonance left me rather blasé about it when I know I should have felt differently.
Tomatometer Stop-Loss is sincere and complex, and features strong performances, even if it tries to cover too much ground.
