Critic Reviews for American Son

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (13)

  • Stirringly told, American Son dramatizes a harsh social reality and tributes this nation's fighting force.

    January 24, 2008
  • This is conventional dramatic material played with an occasionally heavy hand, but sculpted with care and quiet assurance by helmer Neil Abramson.

  • ends up being one of the strongest entries in the growing list of films about Iraq even though, ultimately, it probably doesn't belong on that list at all.

    September 20, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The sort of movie that folks who are addicted to a Tom Cruise-style action sequence every three minutes might dismiss as one in which "nothing happens."

    September 8, 2009 | Rating: 74/100
  • Several anti-war films have come along in the past couple of years calling out the war in Iraq. They've covered various conspiracies, big personalities and the front lines. But, perhaps, none have been as human as Neil Abramson's American Son.

  • American Son is one of the few modern takes on the material that never once apologizes for its warrior-in-waiting.
