Critic Reviews for Triage
It's a film to admire from afar, taking on the challenge of depicting war zone trauma, but it rarely connects in any sort of profound manner.
It's the 88-year-old Christopher Lee's juiciest role in ages, and watching him play off with Farrell is easily worth enduring the shortcomings in 'Triage.'
Audience Reviews for Triage
WELL...a Colin Farrel film that I really, really liked. I have never been a big fan of his, but he did a wonderful job in this movie. Powerful, profoundly moving film. Difficult to watch at times, but worthwhile with an award level performance from Colin Farrell. He is supported by an outstanding cast. Christopher Lee is of particular note..he was extremely well casted in this. But the films impact depends on Colin, and he reveals what a truly great actor he can be when liberated from action movie hell. Well directed, and thoughtful.
You know, I like Colin Farrell a lot, but he really doesn't seem to have found the most extraordinary work lately. Triage is absolutely forgettable and it doesn't appear that London Boulevard will be much better... (especially considering the release has been delayed over a year) That being said, Triage is not bad, but like stated before, it's forgettable. There really is not anything special about it. The one thing that really sticks out are the "artsy" bits. The photography and even the way everything else was shot is beautiful and/or repulsive at times. The rest of the material has potential, but it just never picks up steam. The story never really goes anywhere and while the characters are interesting broken people, they just have nowhere to go. So, honestly, it's not terrible, but I sort of regret having watched the film. It just feels like it was a waste of time.
While this war drama was predictable, it still kept me interested in it due to its excellent execution. Great performances by the actors involved added icing on the cake. However, this won't be everyone's cup of tea.

|Joaquin Morales:||So what was I to do? Was I to leave these killers as they were? So they could go on killing? No. I could not agree to that. So I purified them and brought them back to life .. and humanity.|
