Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Irvin, who shot a documentary in Vietnam in 1969, the year the action takes place, makes fine use of the Philippines locations and the verisimilitude supplied by the production team."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"No matter what you think of the script, it's impossible to dismiss what's up on the screen."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"The most remarkable traits of this realistically detailed chronicle of a crucial, bloody Vietnam War combat is that it steers clear of Stallone's right-wing machismo in Rambo and of Oliver Stone's metaphorical meanings (good versus evil) in Platoon."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"There are a couple of rocky moments, but the large cast of unknowns go through hell convincingly, and illustrate the randomness of mortality."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"This is a film about the futility of war expressed in the simplest terms."
‑ , Film4
"Serves as a grim reminder of what it was like for young men to live and die in the war in Vietnam."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A well-made Vietnam War film that narrows its attention to the men of a single platoon in a specific operation."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Although it was underrated at the time of its release, time will eventually reveal that Hamburger Hill is one of the best and most realistic films made about the Vietnam War."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"cliched but entertaining Vietnam war drama/action."
‑ Brian Mckay,
