Comparing this movie with "Das Boot" is a travesty! Hardly 10 minutes go by when one of the tank crews exclaims " I have to pee" then they pass an empyty ammo can! If theyspent more than 10 grand making this tripe it was too much. Totally unbelievable and contrived. I only wish that I could have read an honest review like this before wasting my money...

While the title alone may send people into a tizzy, this actually isn't a movie about which side is right or wrong. Full Review

Lebanon is meticulous, nearly clinical in its attention to what happens in war -- specifically what happened in the first days of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 -- but it is also a palpably and intensely personal film. Full Review

A terrifying, absorbing 93 minutes spent in hell. It captures the intensity of warfare in a visceral fashion that recalls Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" and Oliver Stone's "Platoon." Full Review

The emotional traumas of young Israeli soldiers drafted into the war with Lebanon in the 1980s are recounted through the eyes of a tank crew in this wrenching concentration of raw emotion directed by Samuel Maoz. Full Review
Derek Elley
Variety
Visceral, torn-from-the-memory filmmaking that packs every punch except one to the heart, Lebanon is the boldest and best of the recent mini-wave of Israeli pics ("Beaufort," "Waltz With Bashir") set during conflicts between the two countries. Full Review
