Soldiers tell us the cost of killing

The familiar format helps to underscore what's extraordinary about these stories, the fear and indignity felt by the soldiers.

The humane portrayals make it worthwhile, if unspectacular, viewing.

Their wars differ but their tales are eerily identical. Their material is arresting, with troves of detailed memories pouring out for the first time.

Avoids preaching to the choir, though perhaps only the choir will attend.

An explicitly antiwar conclusion unwisely makes the grim focus feel like a bias, but the power of the interviews makes one wish for more stories, not fewer.

Co-directors Lexy Levell and Michael Uys deserve a 21-gun salute for fashioning a sobering antidote to all that patriotic claptrap about serving God, country and apple pie.

Deeply affecting antiwar documentary arriving just at the right moment with Obama planning to send 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan and just after the senseless massacre at Fort Hood.

This profoundly provocative film has the potential to change society's attitude towards and acceptance of war. It is extremely important that it be seen as widely as possible.

Has important things to say. Sadly, it does so in an unexciting manner.

A film whose benign-sounding title and Veterans Day release give a false impression of what it actually is: an attack on the military, drenched in blood.

Unlike, for example, Errol Morris's recent works, it doesn't bother to buttress the eye-opening firsthand accounts with a coherent historical argument.

A well-intentioned but uninvolving anti-war documentary.
