David Rooney
Soberly and intelligently examines the fear, frustration, anxiety, animosity and boredom of waiting to advance into the terrifying other world that lies over the lip of the trenches. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
The acting is solid, but Tony Pierce-Roberts's unimaginative camera work falls short of his highest standard. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
By the time they're ready to leave their trench, we're not at all ready to see them go. Full Review
Fred Camper
Chicago Reader
Boyd brings no new insights to this drama of men in a confined space, a situation that's been the basis for many powerful war films. Full Review
Henry Cabot Beck
Boyd would be smart to add a little sound and fury next time around. War is hell, after all. Full Review
