Amazing archival footage, narrated by Kelsey Grammer, puts us right there. Memories shared by servicemen and families help us feel the importance of the subject.

Earnest and well meaning, Until They Are Home tells a solemn story, but just not very well.

Swelling music and Kelsey Grammer's refined narration supply the appropriate sobriety, but the film is too intent on promoting the nobility of its cause to worry about engaging the uninitiated.

A well-meaning but pedestrian documentary that deals with gut-wrenching subject matter.

Unfortunately too pedestrian to appeal to many beyond war buffs and the uber-patriotic.

Like the recovery mission it chronicles, Until They Are Home is a noble but relatively uneventful experience.
