Heaven has so many themes, ranging from Buddhist spirituality to feminism, it ends up with none.

Overblown, forgettable Oliver Stone epic.

...despite every intention the movie can't quite shake its American male point of view.

Mr. Stone tells this tale vigorously, but he has the wrong cinematic vocabulary for his heroine's essentially passive experience.

What Oliver Stone has created is his Mrs. Miniver for the Vietnam era.

Some of the parts are undeniably gripping; what gets lost are the characters themselves.

This is the first time [Stone] has tried to place himself inside a woman's imagination, and that he succeeds so well is due partly...to an extraordinary performance by Hiep Thi Le in the leading role.

Heaven and Earth has the epic scope one would expect from a film of this magnitude, but it lacks much of the narrative strength of Stone's first two Vietnamese tales.

I found this story moving and at times wrenching...Oliver Stone has made his best film about Vietnam.

Touches the heart not only as a cross-cultural treasure but as Oliver Stone's most soulful movie.

Stone has a keen directorial eye, and Heaven and Earth is usually interesting to watch.
