Critic Consensus: Girls of the Sun has the best of intentions, but this worthy - and thoroughly timely - story is fatally undermined by its clumsily overbearing execution.

"Girls of the Sun" is a well-meaning, timid tribute that follows the usual pattern of the war correspondent subgenre, glorifying its brave subjects without taking any risks.

Top Critic

The emotion is honestly won. This is, after all, how it has happened for hundreds if not thousands of women victimized by Isis's brutality.

Top Critic

The political setting is vague and the results erratic, alternating between intense suspense and high bathos.

Sep 5, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Representational merits alone can't distinguish this movie's clumsy farrago of good intentions, ham-fisted story choices and cloddishly on-the-nose dialogue.

May 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Barreling forward with fits of strong drama and underwritten characters, Girls of the Sun features just enough good scenes to make one wish they held together as a whole.
