Johnny Got His Gun Reviews

Unless viewers are aficionados of solo shows and want to see every one they can, this effort comes off as forced, far too self-aware and unfortunately dated.

Staged plays just aren't that cinematic, and even under the capable direction of Rowan Joseph, Mr. McKenzie doesn't provide enough spark to offset the problem.

It's hard not to wish that the novel had instead been newly adapted into a real film by a director with the requisite daring and imagination.

Ably filmed by veteran stage producer-director Rowan Joseph, Bradley Rand Smith's theatrical script provides a bravura thespian workout for Ben McKenzie.

Trumbo's aim was a kind of proletarian poetry, but McKenzie's broad emoting has the deadly earnestness of a school play.

Trumbo's dialogue is as subtle as a bayonet charge and as outdated, while McKenzie, alternately shouty and moany, is not the actor to pull it off.

A veteran theater director, Rowan Joseph adapted Dalton Trumbo's antiwar novel into an Off Broadway play in 1982. If you're still kicking yourself for missing that production, then this film is for you -- and only you.

Little more than a good performance of dated material...Trumbo's pacifist rant now seems pleasantly corny in its memories of small-town America and absolutely irrelevant to the very real issues of present-day warfare.

Whether or not you agree with the pacifist message, the presentation is often overwrought and maudlin.
