Audience Reviews for To End All Wars

  • Apr 01, 2013
    An overlooked film that gives a strong message. Not your typical prisoner of war film. This one portrays unity, humanity, and forgiveness among soldiers of all groups..the power of forgiveness over hate. Excellent cast. Very well done...

    A powerful movie that offers a compelling view of war and the power of forgiveness,and does so in an effective and engrossing way. The subject matter and tone is in many ways similar to Bridge Over the River Kwai (a masterpiece), especially in the way it humanizes the enemy, though it lacks the restraint and subtlety of that film. Strong performances from everyone involved. I only wish the film had waited until the epilogue to show the real-life images of the POW camps, as to do it in-film can be distracting. An authentic and memorable tale of war and redemption. 4/5 Stars

    Extremely sad and brutal. It was very good though!

    This was a little too brutal for my liking but you can't argue with the truth!
