Audience Reviews for Yanks

  • Apr 03, 2013
    Three American servicemen stationed in Britain carry on relationships with British women. Essentially a melodrama, <i>Yanks</I> is unique only in its direction by John Schlesinger who follows his <i>Sunday Bloody Sunday</i> vein and focuses on a finely drawn character study. However, like <i>Sunday Bloody Sunday</i> too little happens and, unique to <i>Yanks</i>, the characters don't rise above stereotypes. One American is a womanizer, another a stern administrator, and the third a milquetoast romantic. Lisa Eichhorn plays torn loyalties well, but the rest of the performances are not exceptionally noteworthy. Overall, there isn't much to like about <i>Yanks</i>, a film that takes no risks with characters that have little charisma.
