Critic Reviews for Band of Brothers Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (19)

The brilliance of Lewis in this is that he finds a way to make the ordinary aspects of Dick Winters seem extraordinary, rather than trying to play him as an overtly extraordinary man.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Band of Brothers may be the best film ever made to show the everlasting bond forged in war between ordinary men.

Aug 14, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

As with another Spielberg wartime project, "Schindler's List," it's the real-life people who have the last, and best, word, after a reverent and effective dramatization of the horrors and heroes of war.

Nov 22, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The battle scenes are spectacular, although wincingly graphic at times.

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It wants to occupy a kind of middle ground, somewhere between the sobriety of documentary and the daring of great feature-filmmaking.

Top Critic

In a sense, "Band of Brothers" is a lot like the war: it seems to go on forever, and you're glad when it's finally over. And, in a sense, that kind of authenticity may be the highest tribute that the filmmakers can pay the members of Easy Company.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Band of Brothers is HBO at its very best.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Shot in England, the $120 million production is surprisingly short on familiar faces. But British actor Damian Lewis combines quiet strength and a convincing accent in the role of the all-American unit leader.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

[Damian] Lewis, whose noble, understated characterization of Winters is truly an inspiration, deserves every award television can throw at him.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Its ten chapters compose an impressive fresco of the conflict, but above all of the soldiers who fought in it. [Full review in Spanish]

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Band of Brothers is ten years old and it still holds up as an excellent dramatic account of the second World War.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The battlefield scenes are so pulse-poundingly realistic and graphic, chaotic and terrifying, that viewers will be riveted, if not a little sick to their stomachs.

Audience Reviews for Band of Brothers: Season 1

  • Jul 02, 2020
    The greatest miniseries ever filmed. Period. Full stop.
  • May 22, 2020
    This HBO miniseries was very good. Damian Lewis, Ron Livingston, and the rest of the cast did a spectacular job in this miniseries. Tom Hanks did a spectacular job directing this miniseries as well. This true story about the paratroopers during WW2 was very dramatic and intense. It's about the fighting for your life and showing a lot of courage to fight beside your fellow soldiers in order to defeat the enemy. If you haven't seen this miniseries yet, I suggest that you check it out sometime. It's a must see.
  • May 21, 2020
    An amazing series about WWII. Has a lot of stars and the actual men that were part of the Airborne help to bring emotional depth. Lot of tear jerkers in this one for me.
  • May 19, 2020
    flawless. a great series.
  • May 18, 2020
    Uma obra de arte nua e crua sobre os horrores da segunda grande guerra.
  • Apr 26, 2020
    Such a great mini series. HBO really knows how to produce these. Haven't watch this in awhile till recently. I know people will laugh, but I have this set on vhs. I hooked up my old vcr to watch home movies and found this in my collection. Won't get into details, I'll just say this. The David Schwimmer character. Holy smokes what a you know what. Good acting though on his part.
  • Apr 15, 2020
    The best TV show I've ever seen and it's almost 20 years old.
  • Apr 15, 2020
    Possibly the best war series ever made.
  • Apr 11, 2020
    As a historian, I am stunned by the sacrifice and bravery of our men. As a musician, I am exhilarated by Michael Kamen's sound track, it's simply amazing.
  • Apr 04, 2020
    One of the greatest takes on WW2 that Hollywood ever produced.
