  • Only intermittently effective despite its powerful subject matter.

    Mar 7, 2008
  • Rarely has the gulf between relevance of subject matter and ineptitude of execution been greater than it is in Ezra.

    Feb 20, 2008 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • Since the movie, however infuriating, is a plea for mercy, the audience is compelled to forgive Ezra its often jittery and confusing overlaps.

  • Ezra is a scorching portrait of an African child who is kidnapped and turned into a soldier for a rebel militia.

    Feb 13, 2008 | Rating: 3/5
  • An intelligent, if raw, work.

    Feb 13, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is awash with good intentions, and the actual atrocities are vividly depicted and chilling... but the film loses its momentum when it attempts to analyze the evils of poverty, anarchy and violence.
