Rescue Dawn Reviews

7M Pictures

Unlike a traditional Hollywood movie, Rescue Dawn follows the pacing and irony of real life. It is far from predictable and far from formulaic.

The jungle has been very good to Werner Herzog.

Nick Rogers

Werner Herzog isn't interested in patriotism as product placement, like other directors might be. Though uncommonly somber, "Dawn" is still an engrossing prison-break film. It's not "The Great Escape." It's "The Sheer, Dumb Luck Escape."

September 17, 2010

Dumps traditional war movie bravado in favor of a subtler touch, and softens the blow of an unspeakable ordeal by shooting it amidst a series of jarringly beautiful and poetic canvases.

Bale's lack of ambiguity points to the biggest limitation of a film that makes the grade as an adventure yarn by ignoring the most disturbing implications of its story.

Rescue Dawn may not feel much like a Herzog movie, but it's a gripping real-life thriller.

Rescue Dawn wouldn't be half the film it is if it were not for the stellar performances by Bale and Zahn.

At first glance, "Rescue Dawn" might seem like Herzog gone Hollywood, but it's still very much the man's work. Herzog has his cake and eats it too.

Complex and multi-faceted, Herzog has made a film with the skin of an action movie and the heart of a rhythmic, reflective poem

Cinema em Cena

Emocionante como aventura e como exemplo da força do espírito humano, comprova o talento inquestionável de Herzog, um dos diretores contemporâneos mais importantes e surpreendentes.

This is London

What we miss is the real Herzogian touch that can translate tales of derringdo into something more than mere adventure and stir the soul as well as the heart and mind.

Peter Bradshaw

An effective, unassuming and old-fashioned action adventure which is - perhaps a little faute de mieux - probably the best film of the week.

The only problem with director Werner Herzog's well-paced film is that it seems to have little point beyond admiring Dengler's tenacity.

The performances are worryingly Method. Bale eats bowls of maggots. I had to look away when he tucked into a live snake.

Daily Mirror [UK]

While you have to admire Bale's dedication - he looks like a human skeleton - the film slows to a crawl in the middle as Dengler attempts to survive life in prison. Proceedings may pick up in the last half hour, but getting there proves to be an endurance

Matt Glasby

Overlong and structurally compromised, this powerful, precision-tooled film expertly illustrates just how (altogether now): fear can keep you prisoner but hope can set you free.

Ray Mears has nothing on Werner Herzog. A rough guide to survival in the cruel, cruel world, with a captivating central performance from Christian Bale. Gripping, emotional and, oddly, gloriously optimistic.
