Critic Reviews for Band of Brothers: Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (16)

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.

August 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.

August 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.

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

Hanks and Spielberg do an excellent job of bringing the horror of war to life, after the painfully slow build-up of the first episode.

Top Critic

Band of Brothers is HBO at its very best.

August 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.
