Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"More grueling than rewarding."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Will be well-received on Sunday-school movie night at church, particularly during group discussions afterward. For the rest of us, alas, it doesn't quite hang together."
‑ Burl Burlingame, Honolulu Star-Advertiser
"the unoriginal presentation, which often favors hitting us over the head when restraint would be far more enticing, leaves much to be desired"
‑ David Thomas,
"Director David L. Cunningham, working on a small budget, skillfully combines scenes of action and anxiety with substantial character development."
‑ Ed Scheid, Boxoffice Magazine
"A vivid but uneven film."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Its message of costly sacrifice and hard-won reconciliation is at the heart of the gospel, and the fact that this story is drawn from actual events demands attention."
‑ Ron Reed, Christianity Today
"Extremely well-made, this film looks excellent and features strong performances from the entire cast."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"An ensemble effort that recalls other great POW movies, Wars boasts many superb performances."
‑ David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter
"...there's no denying that the story it's telling is a fascinating one."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There's so much cynical and calculated religion these days that it's nice to see, regardless of one's wartime affiliation, a traditional Christian forgiveness that really does have the power to redeem."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
