Hart's War, as you might guess, can get too earnest for its own good. But Billy Ray and Terry George's screenplay, taken from a John Katzenbach novel, is expertly plotted.
December 24, 2010
Big WWII drama about honor, courage and sacrifice.

October 30, 2006
Nationality, race and politics clash in unexpected ways in this well-directed and acted but extremely old-fashioned prison drama that recalls genre film sof the 1950s and 1960s.

May 26, 2006
In the ever-increasing onslaught of war movies, it stands head and shoulders above most of the competition.
February 9, 2006
This earnest WWII escape story throws in a courtroom drama, but to nobody's advantage.
February 13, 2003
'Hart's War' is a perfect example of a film that remains anchored in mediocrity from beginning to end. It plods along like a chronic asthmatic, meandering to a conclusion that's both irritating and implausible.

...Suitably gritty and intense...

It's hard to know whether or not to recommend this film because for every thing it does right there's at least one and occasionally two things it gets ever so wrong.

November 7, 2002
Engaging thriller combines military movie genres and succeeds as more than the sum of its well-oiled parts.

November 6, 2002
Reaches for more than it can handle, but it's well-acted and earnest in its intentions.
October 21, 2002
Paint-by-numbers claptrap.
October 15, 2002
As old-fashioned as it can get, a throwback to cinema's Golden Age and a tribute to the flawed, guilty human beings we call heroes.

August 28, 2002
As an American propagandistic attempt to market patriotism (or courage, or honor), it is arguably successful; by its own merits it is merely decent.
August 27, 2002
The movie's surplus of male-fraternizing never conveys that these Americans are under imminent danger and stress.

Hart's War is an absorbing courtroom drama that gives Farrell the chance to show off his star quality although the ending disappoints.
August 12, 2002
It makes a few fundamental mistakes along the way--mostly due to Willis' star power--but it's still thoroughly entertaining

August 9, 2002
Proves a servicable World War II drama that can't totally hide its contrivances, but it at least calls attention to a problem Hollywood too long has ignored.

August 4, 2002
A perfectly respectable, perfectly inoffensive, easily forgettable film.
| Original Score: 3/5
August 3, 2002
A compact story told with focus and assurance.

June 27, 2002
Neither the film nor its characters break any new ground, but for most of its running time it is an intelligent and compelling prisoner-of-war story
