Nationality, race and politics clash in unexpected ways in this well-directed and acted but extremely old-fashioned prison drama that recalls genre film sof the 1950s and 1960s.

In the ever-increasing onslaught of war movies, it stands head and shoulders above most of the competition.

Reaches for more than it can handle, but it's well-acted and earnest in its intentions.

As old-fashioned as it can get, a throwback to cinema's Golden Age and a tribute to the flawed, guilty human beings we call heroes.

Hart's War is an absorbing courtroom drama that gives Farrell the chance to show off his star quality although the ending disappoints.

It makes a few fundamental mistakes along the way--mostly due to Willis' star power--but it's still thoroughly entertaining

Proves a servicable World War II drama that can't totally hide its contrivances, but it at least calls attention to a problem Hollywood too long has ignored.

Neither the film nor its characters break any new ground, but for most of its running time it is an intelligent and compelling prisoner-of-war story

...while it is an entertaining, well-plotted film, there's something missing that keeps it from reaching that higher plane.

Farrell ... thankfully manages to outshine the role and successfully plays the foil to Willis's world-weary colonel.
