Critic Reviews of "Boys Of Abu Ghraib"NPRMarch 30, 2014
Boys of Abu Ghraib is a credible depiction of the tedium, frustration and humiliation of wartime service.VarietyMarch 28, 2014
Writer-director-star Luke Moran's drama about Abu Ghraib is an ambitious if not particularly revealing debut.RogerEbert.comMarch 28, 2014
"Boys of Abu Ghraib" has a few, brief insights into how boredom, anger, and frustration helped fuel the rage that led to torture but the film couches it all in the filmmaking of TV-movie melodrama, draining it of all potential power or social context.Village VoiceMarch 27, 2014
A halfhearted attempt at truly getting inside these men's and women's heads to make sense of their actions, which is ostensibly the purpose of dramatizing such a recent and shameful ordeal.Los Angeles TimesMarch 27, 2014
The film hardly scratches Abu Ghraib's surface.Cinemalogue.comMarch 28, 2014
Its tendency to water down the realities of Abu Ghraib trivializes its subject instead of providing depth or context.Film Journal InternationalMarch 28, 2014
Moran's writing and directing debut is an admirably ambitious examination of the one-baby-step-at-a-time process that leads a fundamentally decent person to shut down his moral compass do things that are, by any objective standard, reprehensible.Blu-ray.comMarch 27, 2014
It's a shame the picture ends on its knees when it had to the potential to create a certain viewpoint that could invite an understanding of the Abu Ghraib prison environment and the stress placed on all involved parties.Aisle SeatMarch 27, 2014
What made these soldiers participate in such deplorable activities? Boys of Abu Ghraib attempts to answer that question. The explanations it comes up with may not be definitive, but they certainly make for a powerful, hard-hitting drama.The DissolveMarch 03, 2014
For a film about the hardened soldiers who oversaw the most notorious detainment center of the Iraq War, Boys Of Abu Ghraib is remarkably squeamish about tackling its subject matter head-on.
