Village Voice - April Wolfe
Harald Zwart’s thrilling The 12th Man, based on the true story of a Norwegian soldier who escaped the Nazis in World War II, is a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart but also an unexpectedly tender adventure that is as celebratory as it is tense.
Movie Nation - Roger Moore
Wartime survival epics are a rich genre unto themselves, and with The 12th Man, Norway has one that ranks among the very best.
Variety - Dennis Harvey
A stirring adventure by any standard.
Los Angeles Times - Noel Murray
The 12th Man is a polished crowd-pleaser, with a timeless message: Nazis suck.
The New York Times - Teo Bugbee
The reward of Mr. Zwart’s attention to the unique details of this historical account is that Jan’s path to safety frequently shocks, offering scenes of defiance that are unfamiliar or unexpected. In a familiar genre, The 12th Man preserves the element of surprise by understanding its terrain.
