This is a fantastic film! There isn't a lot of "battle action" in this film but it is a wartime movie... Set during WWII inside a P.O.W. Camp it shows the brutality of the Nazi's on their prisoners. This has a fantastic cast & a great story line, I highly recommend this film if your a history buff or just like this type of film... it has some twists & turns & definitely makes you think a bit. All in all this film is a great story of how things were for prisoners of the Germans & also tells the story of how the U.S. military was back then as well. Definitely a film worth checking out!

Crap on authenticity. The usual american - all baddies have English accents including the Germans.

Solid film. Interesting murder mystery, war movie, and great escape mashed up. Good production values. Pacing dragged a little in the last act.

Superior ensemble cast & editing allow this flick to rise above what it might have been as a Willis film.

A surprisingly well made and well acted court room drama set in a prisoner of war camp.

When we see we are all pows when we all can't escape this place we wish not to be in. When we see all suffer from being prisoners some longer then others when we can't escape who we are when we are different. When we see we have to let others escape worse fates when we enjoy the luxuries of rank and privileges. When we see not everything we wish to escape from when we belong to do our duty to the highest to do it to its end. When we see we allow others to escape some places they never wished to belong in when we rather see ourselves fighting beyond this place to bring the war to us to fight where we can. When what others can't see what we have done, we pass along through every person to tell it to escape us back home even after death.

Flat out boring. Don't waste your time. (First and only viewing - 4/21/2017)

Good performances can't save the rather mildly compelling premise.

Stupid. Prisoners can have good place to stay.

160716: What's going on? What's going on? Found this film a little weak until half way through. About there, it picked up steam. Enjoyable if you ignore the minor flaws. Some great actors doing very decent work.

A film set during World War 2, it starts out as a POW film but then abruptly goes into a courtroom drama. The cast does what it can but Hart's War is kind of messy and pretty clich├ęd. Its not terrible and the twist isn't horrible, its just kind of easy to figure out

Decent WWII POW Drama...
Super Reviewer

This slightly over two hour WWII period picture was disappointing. The production quality starts off strong and I was rooting for the American men in the POW camp to learn some humility and become less racist. Throughout the movie, it carried a feeling of contrived artificiality instead of truth. The first half is about surviving the western front and a German stalag where the Germans hold almost no real power. Hart (Ferrell) investigating the murder charge placed on a black American fighter pilot to build a defense case in a makeshift court seemed promising. The whole endeavor is against the odds. He gets more help from the German in charge of the camp and there appears to be some conspiracy among the incredibly racist American officers. Hart is portrayed as too naive and idealistic, but like him I felt so disheartened at the sacrifice that the American leadership deemed necessary.

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

Started out great and then went completely stupid. I couldn't even finish it.

There's a lot going on(too much)and a finer focus would have helped.

Good movie, I just completely and totally disagree with the ending, and who the men choose to "honor." Please.

6/5/2015: An ok movie. The cast was excellent. It's not good enough to watch more than once though. Not enough action or emotion throughout.
