Cast & Crew
Reaches for more than it can handle, but it's well-acted and earnest in its intentions.
Proves a servicable World War II drama that can't totally hide its contrivances, but it at least calls attention to a problem Hollywood too long has ignored.
An exciting, thoughtful and adrenaline-pumping war picture that is provocative and different.
You'll get the enjoyable basic minimum. But not a whit more.
The movie itself is far from disappointing, offering an original take on courtroom movies, a few nifty twists that are so crucial to the genre and another first-rate performance by top-billed star Bruce Willis.
The cinematic equivalent of three-dimensional chess.
Watching this film, what we feel isn't mainly suspense or excitement. The dominant feeling is something like nostalgia.
