Movie Info

With a cruel, keen edge, this taut social drama slices deeply into Thatcher's England to expose a grim underbelly of racism, cynicism and despair. Reuben James is a black paratrooper who has spent the last nine years serving in the British army and who finally gets discharged to return to his home in South London. There he discovers that the residents have been ravaged by the poverty of the decade and many have turned to crime to survive, while others do their best in the midst of crushing … More

Critic Reviews for For Queen & Country

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (9) | DVD (4)

Effective radical agitprop, relentless in its anger, this film is more outspoken about contemporary racism in England than any other feature that comes to mind.

Top Critic

This is a serious subject, and worthy of a serious journalistic report. That is not, however, what For Queen and Country is.

Chicago Tribune
Top Critic

The choice of Washington doesn't help: he isn't bad in the part, but his accent strays absurdly. More worrying is the often corny plotting, the by now tired-looking exploitation of Broadwater violence, and a preposterous shootout ending.

Time Out
Top Critic

In a terrifically subtle and powerful performance, Mr. Washington is true to the modest, struggling man he plays. His expression registers restrained anger and much confusion.

Top Critic

For Queen & Country is suspense-free, a laboriously paced look at the poor man's impotence in an unjust society.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Serious-minded and foreboding -- a dark statement that might be a welcome astringent for the buttery buildup on your moviegoing palate.

Top Critic

A jolly caper it isn't, but for gritty thrills and powerful drama, it delivers.

Empire Magazine

Well-intentioned but overreaching.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Denzel Washington gives a forceful performance as the black protagonist, but the story sinks into mere cops-and-robbers melodrama after a while.

Full Review… | May 21, 2013
Christian Science Monitor

Artfully directed and acted, For Queen & Country errs by overstating its case.

Full Review… | May 21, 2013
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Aside from the bizarre sight of Denzel Washington sporting a cockney British accent, there's not much worth recommending about For Queen and Country.

Full Review… | July 1, 2004
Reel Film Reviews

Sadly, in trying to make a point about an unjust society, director Martin Stellman and writer Trix Worrell go disastrously overboard.

½

Denzel walks around, denzel talks to some guys, denzel drinks some liquor, denzel dies. and he does all this with a british accent and australian slang.
