Meg Ryan, Matt Damon and Oscar® Winner* Denzel Washington light up the screen in this “intelligent, involving” (Los Angeles Times) story about courage, honor and the true meaning of heroism in the face of impossible odds. When troubled U.S. Army Officer Serling (Washington) is asked to review the posthumous candidacy of the first woman (Ryan) to receive a Medal of Honor, he’s determined to carry out the monumental task without letting pressure from hopeful superiors interfere with the process. But as the investigation plunges him into an apparent cover-up surrounding her death, Serling must confront the lies, deceit – and his own tormenting demons – to find the truth behind the final moments of a soldier’s life.

Variety Staff Variety | July 22, 2008

A carefully conceived, dramatically honorable picture that treats its subject with clarity and intelligence, especially by contemporary standards.

Janet Maslin New York Times | August 30, 2004

Despite its underlying predictability, Courage Under Fire manages warmth, intelligence and a healthy share of surprises.

Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle | June 18, 2002

A fascinating mystery mixed with war action.

Liam Lacey Globe and Mail | April 12, 2002

At the end of Courage Under Fire, you feel torn between admiration and annoyance with the filmmakers, who take an attention-grabbing premise and skillfully develop it into a conclusion that's pure piffle.

Peter Travers Rolling Stone | May 12, 2001

Courage Under Fire honors its subject and its audience.

Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times | February 14, 2001

While its re-creation of combat is not Courage Under Fire's most involving aspect, the film succeeds in making the Gulf War seem more of a real event than all the footage shipped back on CNN could.
