The substance of the movie is potent, and so powerfully presented by those who have fought and are still fighting a controversial war, that the message of Ground Truth cannot be dismissed. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Wrenching new documentary about returning veterans, may not single-handedly reverse the trend of ignoring Iraq docs in theatrical release, but it should. Full Review

Washington Post
Mostly a string of talking-head interviews, but those talking heads -- more than 16 men and women -- are compelling. Full Review

Immensely moving. Full Review
James Greenberg
The Hollywood Reporter
Foulkrod's film is not about taking a political side, though it is clear she is strongly opposed to the war in Iraq. Her focus instead is on the dehumanizing of eager young men and their transformation into killing machines. Full Review
