[Director] Colpaert makes nice use of blue and green hues, and he makes some valid points about the Iraqi war. But the script lacks coherence and ends with a 180-degree flip that lessens the impact of what has gone before.

G. I. Jesus may be a mixed bag, but it is so impressive in so many ways that it demands to be taken seriously.

For such a gritty indie film, it's galling that [Arquette] and his family are so handsomely photogenic in a generic Hollywood way. Where's the rebellious truth in that?

The choices made by the characters are sure to infuriate some, but at least they add to the discussion.

The scattershot approach may not be masterful, but it does land some glancing blows.

... Colpaert has so vividly seized the contemporary moment, and explored it with his own eyes and conscience.

This unruly hodgepodge of actual combat footage and Manchurian Candidate-style surrealism is a bold, often clumsy, but always intriguing piece of work.
