Reviews:
"[A]n atmospheric, tear-jerking, highly cinematic melodrama....This is a film that kids, middle-aged adults and grandparents can all see -- together or separately -- and get something out of in their own ways." - 12/15/2011 Hollywood Reporter

"With widescreen, pastoral vistas dappled in golden sunlight and washed in music that is somehow both grand and folksy, Mr. Spielberg lays siege to your cynicism, bombarding you with strong and simple appeals to feeling." - 12/25/2011 New York Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] film of 1,000 spectacular magic-hour shots....Whether showing the horrors of war or the humanity of those caught up in the conflict, it hits home." - 02/01/2012 Total Film

"[We're] aware of being the presence of one of cinema's great shot-makers. Spielberg covers an ill-fated massed British cavalry charge with a sidelong tracking shot straight out of Olivier's HENRY V..." - 02/01/2012 Sight and Sound
