Variety - Dennis Harvey
Its up-close portrait of heroic dedication in extreme situations has the dramatic immediacy and air of privileged access to impress both hawks and doves.
Village Voice - Luke Y. Thompson
It’s clear in their eyes that they’ve seen some shit—and this doc not only gives us a glimpse of it too, but adds valuable context in a way not many others do.
The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
One of the more effective entries in what has essentially become a documentary subgenre, the film focuses on the surviving Green Berets who recall their experiences with a combination of pride and sorrow.
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
Looking at combat from all sides, examining the pride, the anger and the regrets, is what this fine documentary is all about.
The New York Times - Ken Jaworowski
You’ll have to wade through several topics to get to the heart of Legion of Brothers, but once you’re there, some intense stories make the effort worthwhile.
