Johnny Got His Gun Reviews

Top Critic

The film is often sentimental, sometimes brilliant as well as horrifying, and it is intriguing to speculate on what Bu˝uel, whom Trumbo originally wanted to direct, would have made of it.

Although Mr. Trumbo is primarily a screenwriter, screenwriting is only the worst of the film's several failures.

Instead of belaboring ironic points about the "war to end war," Trumbo remains stubbornly on the human level.
