Casualties of War Reviews

Page 1 of 2
Emanuel Levy

This Vietnam War saga, inspired by a true story, is among De Palma's better pictures, devoid of his usual gimmicry and cynicism.

Brian Orndorf

It's a fat glop of obvious screen manipulation that preserves a frightening human core, making the life and death struggle all the more shocking.

De Palma uses his consummate filmmaking skill to craft a reflection of his own grave sorrow about the Vietnam era.

Fox is quite touching here, topped only by Sean Penn in a superb, frightening performance.

Disturbing anti-war film with strong Sean Penn and surprisingly effective Michael J. Fox.

A tour-de-force for De Palma, Penn and Fox - possibly one of the best war movies ever made

Harrowing drama with strong performances

Brian Mckay

Examines the dehumanizing effects of war, and implies that the soldiers who commit the atrocities are as much a victim of that dehumanization as the girl who they victimize

Superb, overlooked Vietnam drama may be Brian DePalma's finest hour.

Jeremy Heilman

The equation of sanctioned and unsanctioned barbarism in the climactic moments of Casualties is about as damning an indictment of the way that humanity justifies immoral acts during war as I've seen.

Michael J. Fox is a little hard to buy in this one.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Too strident in its anti-war sentiment. Penn almost comes across as a caricature.

| Original Score: 2/5

Larry Carroll

An underrated film with perhaps the greatest performance that Michael J. Fox ever gave. DePalma looks at Vietnam through a different persepective than an audience is used to, making this far from your typical war movie. Penn, as always, is riveting to wat

Who'd have thought De Palma had a war flick in him?

Based on a true incident during Vietnam War, the film testifies to our hopes that there are a few ethical souls who believe the weak must be protected.
