Reviews

Bob Mondello NPR.org | October 18, 2008

Rescue Dawn may not feel much like a Herzog movie, but it's a gripping real-life thriller.

Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly | August 20, 2007

But just as exciting -- maybe even more so, for those who love the medium and, especially, the uplift of the great-escape genre -- Rescue Dawn is a triumphant Werner Herzog movie.

Jonathan F. Richards Film.com | August 13, 2007

Herzog builds this movie around another strong, eccentric performance from Bale, who is gaining a reputation for outsized talent and for downsized physicality.

Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald | July 27, 2007

It's easy to understand why Herzog was driven to tell this story twice.

Tom Long Detroit News | July 27, 2007

Takes what could have been a mundane if well-made war story into something greater -- more harrowing, more hungry and more human.

Terry Lawson Detroit Free Press | July 27, 2007

The performances here are as excellent as they are unnerving.

Randy Cordova Arizona Republic | July 26, 2007

... everything about Rescue Dawn feels real ...
