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.

Big WWII drama about honor, courage and sacrifice.

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 8, 2003
...Suitably gritty and intense...
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.

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 17, 2002
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.
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
May 28, 2002
A serious and absorbing drama with the old-fashioned notion of telling a story and taking the necessary time to do so.
April 16, 2002
...while it is an entertaining, well-plotted film, there's something missing that keeps it from reaching that higher plane.
April 15, 2002
Farrell ... thankfully manages to outshine the role and successfully plays the foil to Willis's world-weary colonel.
