Critic Reviews for Sand Castle

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (9)

  • An engaging, gripping fact-based drama starring Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) as a young machine gunner in the U.S. Marines whose platoon is put in the impossible position of saving an Iraqi village.

  • Offers too little to the War is Hell genre to be noteworthy.

    April 21, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's that paradigm shift of war in the buzzing age of mass media: There is literally nothing more horrific than war, and yet nothing seems to become overfamiliar more quickly through modern media saturation.

  • While the material isn't necessarily anything new - I thought the movie presented a slightly more interesting view of what when on there.

    August 12, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Sand Castle is a movie full of tension and fear and which makes sure the audience is right there with the soldiers throughout.

    May 4, 2017 | Rating: 8.0/10 | Full Review…
  • Humanistic look at Iraq war; violent battles, cursing.

Audience Reviews for Sand Castle

  • Mar 17, 2019
    A protagonist ever so slightly reminiscent of that from The Thin Red Line. While Sand Castle is less pretentiously artsy, it could definitely stand to learn a few things from Red Line about character development.
