Critic Reviews of "Tigerland"VarietyJanuary 04, 2007
This take on Vietnam War doesn't break new thematic ground but it's Schumacher's best film since the 1993 Falling Down, and it showcases the talents of newcomer Colin Farrell, who has everything that it takes to become a major Hollywood starTime OutJune 24, 2006
Stylistically this is more interesting and more affected than Schumacher's Flawless. Either way, it's a big improvement on his past tendentious nonsense.Rolling StoneJune 04, 2001
Even when the script overtaxes the allegory about how Vietnam divided a nation at home, Schumacher and the actors prevail by fixing their sights on what happens to men on that last stop before the game of war becomes a grim reality.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 26, 2001
For those who don't mind being challenged, however, and are curious to see why Farrell is being touted as the next big thing, Tigerland has its rewards.Hollywood ReporterFebruary 19, 2001
Tigerland lands squarely in the top tier of best movies about America's Vietnam experience.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 07, 2001
Tigerland is tightly constructed and culminates with a stunningly appropriate charge of ambiguity.Movie MetropolisMay 04, 2012
I wouldn't put Tigerland in the top ranks of war movies, but it's a solid second-tier entry that makes you think about the characters.Scene-Stealers.comJune 27, 2011
Farrell is the best thing about the film, which veers into oversentimentality quite a bit for a film that's shot with such a gritty aesthetic.Film ThreatDecember 06, 2005
Ever since Three Kings redefined just how great a war movie can be, movies like Tigerland have become unforgivable.Film ThreatJanuary 12, 2004
A talented newcomer with genuine presence, Farrell is able to suggest some complexity in a character that is written without any.Reel Film ReviewsAugust 01, 2003
...never quite catches fire or becomes the searing expose that director Schumacher intended.eFilmCritic.comMarch 20, 2003
Farrell holds the film together as the one element that sets this a notch above the average military drama.
