Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Swelling music and Kelsey Grammer's refined narration supply the appropriate sobriety, but the film is too intent on promoting the nobility of its cause to worry about engaging the uninitiated."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Unfortunately too pedestrian to appeal to many beyond war buffs and the uber-patriotic."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"A well-meaning but pedestrian documentary that deals with gut-wrenching subject matter."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Like the recovery mission it chronicles, Until They Are Home is a noble but relatively uneventful experience."
‑ Geoff Berkshire, Variety

‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Earnest and well meaning, Until They Are Home tells a solemn story, but just not very well."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
