Critic Reviews for Kursk

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (2)

"Kursk" occasionally lands an emotive blow but only in its more fictionalized stretches, while it pulls its punches with the thorniest and most provocative elements of the real story...

Moments of suspense are abound here, but not abundant.

It is a perfect reconstruction of a historical episode that is almost as current. [Full Review in Spanish]

On the mainland, the struggle of women, parents and children is also tense and intense. [Director Thomas] Vinterberg goes from one to the other, trying to give them the same weight. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Kursk


The film does a fine job to develop its characters (and the relationship between them) and create a strong feel of claustrophobia (especially with a tense long take that makes us hold our breath), but it also loses focus in its second half with unnecessary melodrama and not a real payoff.
