The battle scenes are amazing in their scope and vehemence. But in the breaks between fighting, the movie reminds us that the costs of war can exceed the loss of life and limb.

Peter Howell

At times the performances seem more akin to the histrionics of old silent movies, when emotions had to be seen because they couldn't be heard.

Globe and Mail
Although flawed, the film is obviously successful in bringing to life what has been called the 20th century's 'forgotten war.'
