Critic Reviews of "Days of Glory"Film.comMay 22, 2007
Instead of guys named Danny and Polack and Sol and Brooklyn, you've got guys named Said and Yassir and Messaoud and Abdelkader. But it's the same deal. Prick them, do they not bleed? Blow them up, do their limbs not scatter and their guts not spill?Time OutMarch 29, 2007
Bouchareb shows a real talent for action sequences.Denver PostMarch 23, 2007
A solidly-constructed window onto an era and a culture clash many Americans never knew existed.Denver Rocky Mountain NewsMarch 23, 2007
A shattering tale of bravery and unrewarded loyalty.Detroit Free PressMarch 16, 2007
It's to the credit of the actors, and Algerian-born director Rachid Bouchareb, that we become emotionally involved with the soldiers and the injustices they are forced to endure.Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionMarch 08, 2007
Days of Glory may lack a certain complexity, but then courage under fire from all sides -- be it the enemy's weapons or your own country's disgusting bigotry -- is a pretty straightforward proposition. The plain facts are more than enough.Antagony & EcstasySeptember 27, 2007
All the upright morality in the world doesn't compensate for poor filmmaking.Flipside Movie EmporiumJuly 03, 2007
As by the numbers as it sometimes becomes, those very clichés also emphasize the fact that we haven't seen these men in this setting before.Movie ViewsJune 30, 2007
Like most every great war movie, it combines intense action with human drama. There's also several overtly preachy scenes that accomplish little to further the story but they underline the already clear message.Arizona Daily StarJune 13, 2007
The horror of "Days of Glory" is that its hate and tolerance are not relics from the past, but are as real today as the flickering shadows on the screen.Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)April 27, 2007
Beautifully photographed, impeccably produced and wonderfully acted, but it offers no surprises...Charlotte WeeklyApril 19, 2007
Standard issue military fare that has a hard time standing apart from established classics of the combat genre.
