Critic Reviews for The Vietnam War Miniseries

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (23)

The final episodes, nine and 10, offered no respite as they trawled through the particulars of America's withdrawal, the downfall of Nixon, and the plight of the boat people.

An excellent 10-part documentary series about the Vietnam War.

As the world once again faces uncertain times, The Vietnam War challenges an entire nation to examine the sources of its enmity and not repeat catastrophes so recent that those directly affected by it can still lend their voices to the warning.

I ended up crying during Kushner's retelling, and also about a half-dozen other times while watching The Vietnam War.

... The Vietnam War boldly and bravely stands its ground and almost assuredly will stand the test of time.

PBS's The Vietnam War is another masterpiece by Burns and Novick. It's powerful proof of something Burns once said -- history doesn't repeat itself, but human nature never changes.

The Vietnam War covers a lot, but never forgets the human element. [Full review in Spanish]

Hollywood should approach the reason of Vietnam with a comprehensive overproduction of the political, economic, social and ideological aspects collected in the magnificent documentary by Burns and Novick. [Full Review in Spanish]
