Restrepo Reviews

Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

If that intimate access had been married to a stronger narrative structure, Restrepo might have been a great film instead of just a collection of striking moments.

At this point in all our Middle Eastern conflicts, we need more from a documentary than just a grunts-eye-view of the frustrating nature of the war.

The film's depiction is honest, but showcasing anything more engaging or important proves elusive.

Despite its remarkably intimate footage of war and loss, Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington's documentary suffers from the same problem as the ongoing U.S. drama in Afghanistan: a lack of narrative coherence.

What Culture

Everything about the way this film is shot, edited and packaged scream of a desire to show the war exactly as it is.

February 1, 2011

The directors push no agendas, but they also pull no punches. They show the soldiers in their bravest moments, most vulnerable and frightened moments, and even their most frighteningly bloodthirsty moments.

The Skinny

Restrepo gazes unflinchingly on those at the heart of a contentious conflict and renders their experience viscerally and -- most importantly -- humanely.

Restrepo succeeds as both a remarkable piece of cinéma vérité documentary filmmaking and a tribute to the soldiers who are put through hell.

Seven Days

It's hard to watch the film without feeling a deep empathy for these guys, partly because they relate to the camera like it's a comrade, not an intruder.

This is hard, hard duty. A 15-month tour. Our admiration for these men grows. Their jobs seem beyond conceiving. I cannot imagine a civilian thinking he could perform them.

In hewing closely to the rhythms of war, Junger and Hetherington forgo different considerations about war.

Restrepo captures the physical trauma and psychological torment that forms the essence of the 'War is Hell' mantra, regardless of which flag you fight under.

Restrepo deserves some highlighting as one of the very few films from our current "war years" that resonates after the lights go up.
