Reviews

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.
