July 26, 2002
Tom Cruise proves he's more than a chiseled face in Stone's anti-war epic.
| Original Score: 4/5
January 28, 2002
As deeply felt as Platoon, as graphic and unrelenting as Salvador, but it's less manipulative than the former and more dramatically integrated than the latter, because Cruise anchors the movie.

Oliver Stone (Best Director Oscar) directs this film about individuals whose traditional patriotism is ambushed by the Vietnam War and reborn in political protest.
May 12, 2001
Stone has found in Cruise the ideal actor to anchor the movie with simplicity and strength.
January 1, 2000
Nothing Cruise has done will prepare you for what he does in Born on the Fourth of July.

January 1, 2000
This is an impassioned movie, made with conviction and evangelical verve. It's also hysterical and overbearing and alienating.
January 1, 2000
Stone has created a film whose overblown parts add up to far less than the epic whole he had in mind.
January 1, 2000
If this is a four star film, you can rest assured that three of those stars come from the balls-out bravura of Tom Cruise in the lead role.

Whether or not you agree with its politics, and it's sure to spark some debate, there's no denying the film's power.
