  • Critic Reviews
    "...The film remains intense, powerful and fascinating for more than three hours....The acting, throughout, is outstanding. Walken's performance is a marvel..."

    "...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....[Streep] gives a smashing film performance..."
    New York Times

    Ultimate DVD

    5 stars out of 5 -- "Cimino's is a political film that makes its points through the trials of its characters..."

    "Cimino's sprawling Vietnam drama is an intimate epic, favouring the personal over the political....This is an ensemble cast par excellence."
