A daunting amount of better made films recounting the period flounces the necessity of Schmidt's picture.
August 10, 2017
Walking with the Enemy is an intense and stirring war film that reveals several heroes heretofore unknown to most of us, and this is a good thing.
June 30, 2014
An unheralded tale of true-life World War II heroism is given standard melodramatic treatment in this earnest epic.
June 6, 2014
...perhaps a little overreaching in that it strains for epicness.
May 10, 2014
Walking With the Enemy is one of those cinematic conundrums critics face: encountering a should-be-told story in a should-be-avoided movie.
April 29, 2014
"Walking with the Enemy" works best for us history nuts who can get by the film's clichs.
April 29, 2014
Cliches, subpar acting undercut effect of Holocaust drama.
April 28, 2014
Great production value & based on a true story
April 28, 2014
Like "Defiance" (2008), which dramatized the resistance efforts led by the Bielski brothers, this is that rare Holocaust drama about Jews fighting back.

It is faithful enough to history to bring alive horrible memories to those among the few lucky survivors who were children at the time.
April 28, 2014
An unfussy but robust World War II drama inspired by the factual story of a small-town Hungarian rabbi's son who used wile, guile and occasionally brute force to disrupt Nazi occupation and save countless Jewish friends and families.
Top Critic
April 27, 2014
An old-school drama so sincere, yet so ham-fisted, it borders on parody.
April 27, 2014
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."
April 26, 2014
Stirring but heavy-handed depiction of W.W. II heroism in Hungary.
April 25, 2014
Sometimes awkward and melodramatic, the debut film from director Mark Schmidt nevertheless derives strength from its little-known true-life story of Holocaust heroism.
April 25, 2014
Intriguing, though cinematically prosaic and factually loose.
April 25, 2014
The film is as dramatically inert as its origins are inspirational.
April 25, 2014
A plodding and clunky drama that never misses an opportunity to embrace a clich.
April 25, 2014
Directed with big budget panache by Mark Schmidt, Walking with the Enemy does justice to a tale that demands to be told
April 25, 2014
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.
