Problems aside, there's a cumulative power to the material and an idea that's impossible to ignore.

[Trumbo's] filmmaking is frugal -- jump-cuts state the passage of time, a languid fade to yellow signifies solar warmth.

Sadly, time has not made this story any less relevant or potent.

Dalton Trumbo (member of the Hollywood Ten) sole directing effort is one of the most hauntingly powerful anti-war film made, an experimental work that's effective as realistic portrait of war's damages as well as metaphoric, quasi-religious journey.

The primal power of the story -- a young man trying to find some sense in what's happened to him -- prevails.

The film is often sentimental, sometimes brilliant as well as horrifying, and it is intriguing to speculate on what Buñuel, whom Trumbo originally wanted to direct, would have made of it.

Instead of belaboring ironic points about the "war to end war," Trumbo remains stubbornly on the human level.

Trumbo successfully turns Johnny into the living embodiment of the horror and futility of war -- but also of the unquenchable resilience of the human spirit.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A heartbreaking anti-war allegory that's a bit slow, yet stills commands your attention. Donald Sutherland as a hippie Jesus is a bit too much, though.

This grim soldier's tale has some bad acting and some overextended melodrama, but eventually it hits its stride and becomes a gripping drama.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Trumbo, directing his first film, drives home his points in a somewhat obvious, often awkward fashion that is overly talky, but so disquieting is his story and the reality underlying it that it is difficult not to be moved by the film.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Ainda que contenha algumas seqüências memoráveis e angustie pela situação de seu protagonista, este único trabalho deTrumbo na direção é óbvio tanto em sua mensagem anti-belicista quanto em sua abordagem fantasiosa.

Although Mr. Trumbo is primarily a screenwriter, screenwriting is only the worst of the film's several failures.
