Cross of Iron Reviews
October 23, 2019
Cross of Iron is not a musical but it makes me wanta sing "It Seems To Me I've Seen That War Before," - only without so much blood and gore.

This was Peckinpah's last important work and his only war movie.

Goes to extremes to paint a picture of war as insane.

War is hell, but for Peckinpah it's also the sadist's Olympian joke
August 30, 2006
Its complex and vivid portrayal of the absurdity of war, however, prompted none other than Orson Welles to write Peckinpah and proclaim it the finest antiwar film he had ever seen.

Cross of Iron would almost seem a proper mea culpa by Peckinpah for his controversial career.
May 9, 2005
Mr. Peckinpah's least interesting, least personal film in years, a hysterically elaborate, made-in-Yugoslavia war spectacle, the work of international financiers and a multinational cast.

This war film is also Peckinpah's last great movie.

Peckinpah indulges in endless combat scenes (this was his only war movie), which try the patience of viewers who came for the real story.
