Tigerland Reviews

Farrell is the best thing about the film, which veers into oversentimentality quite a bit for a film that's shot with such a gritty aesthetic.

...after the effective buildup, the resolution is a letdown. It seems pat, formulaic, and anticlimactic...

Beyond the excellence of the young actors, however, the film offers little we haven't seen before.

The movie moves along as if it were on a forced march to Hanoi.

Beneath the rough vérité exterior beats the same slick, corny heart that has pumped blood (and money) through Mr. Schumacher's Batman and John Grisham pictures.

Greg's Previews at Yahoo! Movies

The narrative is weak, with the film consisting of a series of incidents that don't seem to be consistently connected.

Lesley M. Smith

Moments of beauty jostle bathetic scene-rigging, poignant historical verisimilitude crumples under anachronistic assonance, and skin-tingling acting runs up against wooden caricature.

Tigerland will only reinforce one of the biggest complaints regarding Schumacher's work: that it's all about the look, not the material.

At best, Tigerland is not much more than a low-rated, cable-channel movie-of-the-week that should be channel-surfed right on by.

A talented newcomer with genuine presence, Farrell is able to suggest some complexity in a character that is written without any.

Ever since Three Kings redefined just how great a war movie can be, movies like Tigerland have become unforgivable.

Tigerland lands squarely in the top tier of best movies about America's Vietnam experience.

Schumacher strips down his story and style until he has nothing left but bare-bones storytelling.

Schumacher relies on an understated documentary style, largely using handheld cameras and seemingly improvised scenarios.

Stylistically this is more interesting and more affected than Schumacher's Flawless. Either way, it's a big improvement on his past tendentious nonsense.

I wouldn't put Tigerland in the top ranks of war movies, but it's a solid second-tier entry that makes you think about the characters.

An affecting, old fashioned, antiwar war story.

Even when the script overtaxes the allegory about how Vietnam divided a nation at home, Schumacher and the actors prevail by fixing their sights on what happens to men on that last stop before the game of war becomes a grim reality.
