The Yellow Birds

Critics Consensus

The Yellow Birds has a strong cast and a worthy message, but they're both lost in this war drama's rote, clichéd story.

With a compelling mix of battle action and poignant drama, The Yellow Birds is an unforgettable movie whose power resonates long after the final frame.
