  • There are scenes here that you can't unsee, much as you might want to.

  • There are occasions when more information or sustained introspection feels necessary, but there also times when images speak for themselves.

    October 30, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The footage is incredible -- both in terms of what it shows and the danger Ware puts himself through to get it -- and permits none of the censorship we're accustomed to.

    April 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This visceral, harrowing distillation of Wares seven years on the front line may not break any new ground. But it certainly brings that chaos to life ...

    January 2, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Only The Dead lacks a consistent self-reflexivity, coming across as a hybrid of simplistic narrative account of the war and personal diary.

    March 2, 2016 | Rating: Not Recommended | Full Review…
  • Given this is assembled mostly from his own war correspondents videos, Ware is at the centre of most of the footage and your response to the film will largely depend on your response to him and his true blue blokey personality.
