Critic Reviews for Men in War
Time has proved its unassuming, unadorned craftsmanship - and Ryan's understanding of men pushed to the edge, never asking for an audience's sympathy, only our awareness.
One of the best of the lost patrol movies, set in Korea in 1950, bleakly anti-heroic and prefiguring Milestone's Pork Chop Hill in the bitter irony of its climactic assault on a hill.
The screen play by Philip Yordan and the direction of Anthony Mann are made up largely of previous war-film indications of human behavior that mean little when repeated so many times.
A razor-sharp use of environment. Though the territory is wild and unknown, Mann still emphasizes clarity of action over chaos.
Audience Reviews for Men in War
A tough, dogged look at the psychological beating combat troops endure. Film has special meaning for me because my mother named me Aldo Ray after seeing this movie in the summer of 1958. I was born two months later on September 6th --- coincidently, the events in the film all took place on the same date.
