March 7, 2018
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.

Reaches for more than it can handle, but it's well-acted and earnest in its intentions.

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.
