  • [jA] deliberate, elliptical and startlingly carnal vision of a rogue French soldier's vengeful heart-of-darkness quest.

  • This skillfully crafted and superbly shot war movie suffers from some familiar plot mechanics and an overwhelming sense of doom, yet remains a compelling look at a conflict seldom depicted in French cinema.

  • An extremely confident and undeniably well-made Vietnam war movie...

  • If you suspect that the rote phrase "thank you for your service" can't begin to cover the horror of war, please seek this out.

  • Like Ulliel's vengeful Robert Tassen, scenes are often terse and laconic, punctuated by grim, graphic violence.

  • Nicloux displays a gluttonous amount of gratuitous violence that seems to only serve as a sensationalist exercise. [Full Review in Spanish]
