Critic Reviews for Allegiance

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

An intermittently compelling but ultimately disappointing drama that loses track of its own point of view in favor of more generic storytelling.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

The plot ticks along steadily, if predictably; but we've often seen these soldiers before.

New York Post
Top Critic

Without its topical pretext and overzealous patriotism, Allegiance would be just another generic action film.

Village Voice
Top Critic

This well-acted debut feature from Michael Connors (a former Army captain) is too limited in ambition and scope to satisfy our expectations.

New York Times
Top Critic

What, exactly, is the payoff for suffering through such painfully bad filmmaking for 93 minutes?

Time Out
Top Critic

Thoughtful characterizations and commendable performances only go so far when what's working as an intimate exposé of the rank and file facing a gut-check moment of utilitarianism tries to become a taut thriller against the clock.

Audience Reviews for Allegiance

I read about this on Irish Central, the filmmakers are Irish American!! Was a nice movie. The actors are great in this. Sad our troops are still being deployed.
