Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This brilliantly made war film helped alert Hollwyood to Verhoeven's talents."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Powerful stuff from back when Paul Verhoeven made good movies."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
""Soldier of Orange" may not be great art but it's a good yarn. And the combined effects of Mr. Verhoeven's comfortingly old-fashioned storytelling and Mr. Hauer's unexpectedly brittle performance keep it moving at a fast clip."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Soldier of Orange offers an involving look at the horrors of war."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Eschewing patriotic posturing and respectability, Verhoeven fills the epic canvas with bracing viscera"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Heartbreaking war drama from a young Paul Verhoeven."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
