What to know

critics consensus

Tense, intelligent, and refreshingly low-key, A War is part frontline thriller, part courtroom drama -- and eminently effective in both regards. Read critic reviews

    After a rather clumsy first hour that feels a bit too static and even predictable in its unfolding, this great naturalistic war drama surprisingly grows in its second half to raise intelligent and relevant questions about the kind of ugly decisions a good soldier can make in the line of fire.
