Nick Schager
Slant Magazine

The doc proves to be an interesting, respectful portrait of Vietnam vet protestors that ultimately lacks a much-needed measure of dramatic nuance and friction.

If there was such a widespread antiwar movement within the military, why did the war drag on so long?

Most soldiers in every war don't want to fight. Not all of them whine with the success these people had.

In seeking to express its outrage over the Vietnam War, Sir! No Sir! loses its moral compass, conflating dissidence and traitorousness, and confusing friends with the enemies of their enemies.

Glenn Whipp
Los Angeles Daily News

Zeiger can't resist overstating the extent of the GI peace movement, and his singular focus in hailing the protesters creates more than a few blind spots in his movie.

Maria Garcia
Film Journal International

An aimless pastiche of archival footage and current interviews of former Vietnam vets court-martialed and jailed for their anti-war activities.

About an almost-forgotten fact of the Vietnam era: Anti-war sentiment among U.S. troops grew into a problem for the Pentagon.

Honors those who fought, then questioned the morality of that fight, then joined the national protest.

In his smart, timely documentary, David Zeiger remembers that war and the veterans whose struggles against it are too often forgotten.

This documentary is strong stuff with a powerful evocation of a past with strong implications about the present.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Not only a fascinating illumination of a blotted-out part of the counter-cultural, popular-protest '60s, but a timely questioning of patriotism and duty in the midst of an increasingly unjustifiable war.

I expected to emerge depressed by how long these stories have gone untold, but the speakers' courage and humanity are a shot in the arm.

A tight, engrossing and excellent chronicle of the movement made by these heroic men who chose to question authority instead of falling in line.

Sir! No Sir! is a reminder of Fonda's star power, past and present ... her charisma and zeal haven't mellowed a bit.

Because it's bolstered by proud memories of Vietnam vets who turned against the war, Sir! No Sir! rings with an exultant, even elated tone.

This compelling documentary by director David Zeiger recounts what were more than half a million 'incidents of desertion' during the war, many of them acts of direct rebellion against the legitimacy of the war.

Sir! No Sir! so vividly evokes the rage, passion and provocation of the era it chronicles that it feels up-to-the-minute.
