Heartbreak Ridge Reviews

June 15, 2020
A drama that gets you in totally without you ever realising it.

What elevates the film are its dead-on verisimilitude about 1980s military culture, its lightly-worn insights into the larger issues at stake, and its precision-lathed dialogue, which is smart but never smarmy.

Set during the Grenada War, Clint Eastwood's war movie is a formulaic, old-fashioned actioner wearing its ideology on its sleeves.

Heartbreak Ridge offers another vintage Clint Eastwood performance.

You may not always like Eastwood's films, but you seldom get downright bored by them.

For a war film, Heartbreak Ridge is oddly lighter in spirit than many of Eastwood's other films from this period.

The film belongs to Eastwood. Now looking increasingly like an Easter Island statue, he has a voice pickled in bourbon, a tongue like razor wire, and a body so full of shrapnel that he can't walk through airport metal detectors.

Clint Eastwood is at his macho, insubordinate best in this exuberant, salty military movie with more memorable lines and funny moments than most comedies.

As the gritty, raspy-voiced sergeant, Mr. Eastwood's performance is one of the richest he's ever given.

Eastwood's clearly having a ball as a gravel-throated solider man.

To tell the truth, the Grenada Incursion looks even sillier on film than it did in the headlines. War is not hell, it's big box office.

We have seen this story in a hundred other movies ... But Eastwood, as the producer, director and star, caresses the material as if he didn't know B movies have gone out of style.

A few Cubans with AK47s isn't exactly "The Guns of Navarone." At the end, you can't decide whether Eastwood and his platoon should get medals or merit badges.
