Chicago Tribune - Gene Siskel
What distinguishes The Deer Hunter most is its many rich characters and the size of its vision. This is a big film, dealing with big issues, made on a grand scale. Much of it, including some casting decisions, suggest inspiration by "The Godfather." [9 Mar 1979]

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
It is not an anti-war film. It is not a pro-war film. It is one of the most emotionally shattering films ever made.
100
Empire - Colin Kennedy
A simultaneuosly touching and harrowing experience that puts the audience directly in the shoes of one man's experience of Vietnam.
100
The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
The idea of sacrifice permeates everything, along with the cruelty and horror. This is Cimino's masterpiece.
90
The New York Times - Vincent Canby
A big, awkward, crazily ambitious, sometimes breathtaking motion picture that comes as close to being a popular epic as any movie about this country since "The Godfather."

The Deer Hunter (1978)



A group of working-class friends decides to enlist in the Army during the Vietnam War and finds it to be hellish chaos -- not the noble venture they imagined. Before they left, Steven married his pregnant girlfriend -- and Michael and Nick were in love with the same woman. But all three are different men upon their return.
