G.I. Jesús Reviews

April 11, 2007
[Director] Colpaert makes nice use of blue and green hues, and he makes some valid points about the Iraqi war. But the script lacks coherence and ends with a 180-degree flip that lessens the impact of what has gone before.

The choices made by the characters are sure to infuriate some, but at least they add to the discussion.

The scattershot approach may not be masterful, but it does land some glancing blows.

... Colpaert has so vividly seized the contemporary moment, and explored it with his own eyes and conscience.

This unruly hodgepodge of actual combat footage and Manchurian Candidate-style surrealism is a bold, often clumsy, but always intriguing piece of work.
