Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Fort McCoy" is an obvious labor of love. That doesn't make it a good movie, but it's a nice sentiment all the same."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"An old-fashioned, appealingly sentimental drama about homefront life during WWII."

"Writer and co-director Kate Connor's debut feature "Fort McCoy" is an example of what happens when you try to shoehorn as many topics and themes from WWII as you can into one movie."
‑ Kevin Jagernauth, The Playlist
"A heartfelt, personal film with great performances aims for the stars and falls back to earth."
‑ Karsten Kastelan, Hollywood Reporter
