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
Not the greatest movie, but very enjoyable. And attempts to touch on more complex emotions and themes than your typical 1950s war movie.
change of pace expertly handled by director anthony mann ('johnny guitar" also i love the scoring of this movie esp the most effective use of the xylophone!
