Critic Reviews for The Yellow Birds
It's not only that The Yellow Birds doesn't have anything new to say, but that it's playing movie karaoke with other, better war movies.
"The Yellow Birds" ... takes the form of a detective story, albeit one in which the mystery is as drearily protracted as it is ultimately unpersuasive.
The film seems chiefly informed by other movies; the generic combat scenes are staged with the same shaky handheld "urgency" as every other Iraq War picture, while the characters have no psychology beyond the usual innocence-lost arc.
"The Yellow Birds" mostly feels like a slightly different version of "American Sniper," not least because of its disregard for any lives lost that don't belong to Americans.
An excellent novel about the Iraq War and its homefront fallout has been turned into a rather flat and disappointing film in The Yellow Birds.
