Critic Reviews of "Casualties of War"Los Angeles TimesMarch 16, 2015
There's a moral charge to the action, but it's also swooningly exciting, coldly scary. Every friend may be an enemy, every innocent a traitor.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
A powerful metaphor of the national shame that was America's orgy of destruction in Vietnam, Brian De Palma's film deals directly with the harrowing rape and murder of a Vietnamese woman by four GIs.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Casualties of War is dull.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Penn plays Meserve with terrific elan. There is plausibility in every movement and gesture, and especially in his crafty handsomeness. His Meserve is the sort of man one credits with thoughts when the mind may, in fact, be completely blank.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Another Brian De Palma movie, another bludgeoning. Or stabbing. Or body-drilling. Whatever -- as long as the victim's a woman.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
It is a breakthrough work, a signal of an artist's blossoming maturity, and one of the most punishing, morally complex movies about men at war ever made.The Film StageJuly 20, 2016
Speaking to our near-masochistic desire to revisit works in the hope that we can reverse the tragic outcome, Casualties of War perhaps transcends the very label of "war film."Reel Film ReviewsMay 10, 2016
The strong conclusion ensures that the film ends on a somewhat powerful note...Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMay 28, 2015
Makes us look at the mistaken Vietnam War as something that's dehumanizing.Film4March 16, 2015
A typical De Palma film, disturbingly based on true events, Casualties Of War works well enough.Empire MagazineMarch 16, 2015
Michael J. Fox is a revelation as the mouse that roared, whilst the score, the direction, and the rest of the cast turn a risky film into a solid addition to the Nam canon.TV GuideMarch 16, 2015
Top acting honors go to Penn as the sergeant and Thuy Thu Le as the captive girl.
