Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Despite its underlying predictability, Courage Under Fire manages warmth, intelligence and a healthy share of surprises.
Fresh: Courage Under Fire honors its subject and its audience.
Fresh: Part Rashomon, part The Caine Mutiny, the first major-studio film to deal with 1991's Desert Storm not only captures the terror of battle but also its wrenching aftermath.
Rotten: I wasn't particularly moved or riveted with suspense.
Courage Under Fire is a dynamic story of events that can happen in the military today. Very well written and directed. The actors were marvelous. 5 STARS!!!!!
Unpredictable, Edge of Your Seat, Gut wrenching, Tear Jerker. Your emotions will be moved constantly watching this movie. Denzel is so believeable, Meg Ryan was great, and the plot was well thought out. I could watch this again and again. I'd love to buy this and keep it in my collection forever.
This movie is amazing.
I'm not one for war or military movies but this movie definitely goes deeper into the people and their families. You will love it-very moving and there is so much more going on than you think. The images still get me, and I choke up sometimes when I talk about it. I will be purchasing it!
