I wouldn't put Tigerland in the top ranks of war movies, but it's a solid second-tier entry that makes you think about the characters.

This take on Vietnam War doesn't break new thematic ground but it's Schumacher's best film since the 1993 Falling Down, and it showcases the talents of newcomer Colin Farrell, who has everything that it takes to become a major Hollywood star

Stylistically this is more interesting and more affected than Schumacher's Flawless. Either way, it's a big improvement on his past tendentious nonsense.

...never quite catches fire or becomes the searing expose that director Schumacher intended.

The hype is justified -- Farrell's performance just screams star quality and has already drawn comparisons with Steve McQueen and Paul Newman.

One of the most potent explorations of the military mind-set, irrespective of the war in question, that you'll ever see. See it.

Even when the script overtaxes the allegory about how Vietnam divided a nation at home, Schumacher and the actors prevail by fixing their sights on what happens to men on that last stop before the game of war becomes a grim reality.

A beautifully crafted, brilliantly acted and gently moving film that only occasionally lapses into sentimentality.

A gem of a film that certainly deserves to be seen.
May 7, 2001
Despite his usual ability to spend more time on set design than he does on actors, Schumacher handles the more intimate setting with great skill.

A modest feature with simple aims, Tigerland hits the heart through great performances from a group of unknowns, thoughtful cinematography, and sustained emotional intensity.

For those who don't mind being challenged, however, and are curious to see why Farrell is being touted as the next big thing, Tigerland has its rewards.
