The deceptions and romances carry on as one might expect, all while the film makes some attempt at exploring the cultural shifts of the time period.

Every bit as square and obvious as its title...

This trifle about two soldiers who sneak away to America while on leave unfolds in a world about as realistic as a flashback on a sitcom.

The CW version of the Vietnam War and the 1969 counterculture, Love and Honor hews to a mushy formula far older than its subject matter.

Hemsworth has presence, but he also represents this film's biggest problem: It feels like a bunch of good-looking kids putting on a show.

Love and Honor is capable of much more than predictable melodrama, though director Danny Mooney seems absolutely determined to ease this effort into a honeyed coma as quickly as possible.

A well meaning but essentially dopey period piece film that tries with increasingly diminishing effectiveness to meld an anti-war message with Nicholas Sparks-type romance.

"Love and Honor'' may be politically clueless, but Hemsworth and the student journalist he hooks up with (fellow Aussie Teresa Palmer of "Warm Bodies'') do make an undeniably attractive couple.

little more than a counterfeit Nicholas Sparks adaptation

The attempt at gritty period re-creation seems half-hearted and unconvincing, the screenplay is strictly formula, and most of the primary actors have done better work elsewhere.

It's a lightweight drama filled with heavyweight war-is-hell monologues, delivered by a cast that lacks the gravity to sell them.

Everybody learns something about the illusion of love and the power of honor. It's hard to believe it wasn't written by Nicholas Sparks.

Totally bogus anti-war film, set in a 1969 that bears no resemblance to any actual period.

"Love and Honor" suffices as old-fashioned, pie-in-the-sky entertainment.

'Love and Honor' does not descend to the infantile humor and language of many films about this age group and class. It is better than one would expect.
