Critic Reviews of "Men in War"Chicago TribuneJuly 02, 2015
Time has proved its unassuming, unadorned craftsmanship - and Ryan's understanding of men pushed to the edge, never asking for an audience's sympathy, only our awareness.New YorkerOctober 28, 2008
War on the ground has rarely been done much better than this.Time OutJune 24, 2006
One of the best of the lost patrol movies, set in Korea in 1950, bleakly anti-heroic and prefiguring Milestone's Pork Chop Hill in the bitter irony of its climactic assault on a hill.New York TimesMarch 25, 2006
The screen play by Philip Yordan and the direction of Anthony Mann are made up largely of previous war-film indications of human behavior that mean little when repeated so many times.Combustible CelluloidOctober 29, 2016
A razor-sharp use of environment. Though the territory is wild and unknown, Mann still emphasizes clarity of action over chaos.EmanuelLevy.ComAugust 25, 2012
Grim, harsh, stunningly shot, Mann's Korean War drama is one of the best samplers of its genre.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsOctober 24, 2010
It's a routine 'lost patrol' war drama.Film4May 24, 2003
Mann and Yordan provide a work that lives up to its title, exploring the draining psychological impact of war and its physical rigours, as experienced by two central characters.
