Walking With The Enemy (2014)


Critic Consensus: While Walking With the Enemy tells a stirring and little-known true story, it's ultimately too heavy-handed to fully resonate.

News & Interviews for Walking With The Enemy

Critic Reviews for Walking With The Enemy

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (18)

An old-school drama so sincere, yet so ham-fisted, it borders on parody.

Top Critic

A little-known tale of Jewish resistance during the final days of WWII gets tackled with appreciable ambition and blunt, sporadic emotional force in "Walking With the Enemy."

Apr 27, 2014 | Full Review…
Top Critic

Sometimes awkward and melodramatic, the debut film from director Mark Schmidt nevertheless derives strength from its little-known true-life story of Holocaust heroism.

Apr 25, 2014 | Rating: 3/5

The film is as dramatically inert as its origins are inspirational.

Apr 25, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A plodding and clunky drama that never misses an opportunity to embrace a cliché.

Apr 25, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A badly written, poorly acted, bathetic pageant of bad wigs and worse accents, rendered with production values on a par with NBC's recent Sound of Music mummery.

Apr 25, 2014 | Rating: 1/4
