Critic Reviews of "Johnny Got His Gun"Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The film is often sentimental, sometimes brilliant as well as horrifying, and it is intriguing to speculate on what Buñuel, whom Trumbo originally wanted to direct, would have made of it.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
Although Mr. Trumbo is primarily a screenwriter, screenwriting is only the worst of the film's several failures.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
Instead of belaboring ironic points about the "war to end war," Trumbo remains stubbornly on the human level.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)July 21, 2010
Problems aside, there's a cumulative power to the material and an idea that's impossible to ignore.CinePassionJanuary 12, 2010
[Trumbo's] filmmaking is frugal -- jump-cuts state the passage of time, a languid fade to yellow signifies solar warmth.TV GuideJanuary 12, 2010
Trumbo, directing his first film, drives home his points in a somewhat obvious, often awkward fashion that is overly talky, but so disquieting is his story and the reality underlying it that it is difficult not to be moved by the film.eFilmCritic.comMay 06, 2009
Sadly, time has not made this story any less relevant or potent.EmanuelLevy.ComApril 19, 2009
Dalton Trumbo (member of the Hollywood Ten) sole directing effort is one of the most hauntingly powerful anti-war film made, an experimental work that's effective as realistic portrait of war's damages as well as metaphoric, quasi-religious journey.Old School ReviewsApril 04, 2009
strong historical and literate adaptation of a truly remarkable anti-war classicFilmcritic.comMarch 28, 2009
a sobering, grueling look at useFilmCritic.comNovember 09, 2008
The primal power of the story -- a young man trying to find some sense in what's happened to him -- prevails.Cinema em CenaJuly 19, 2008
Ainda que contenha algumas seqüências memoráveis e angustie pela situação de seu protagonista, este único trabalho deTrumbo na direção é óbvio tanto em sua mensagem anti-belicista quanto em sua abordagem fantasiosa.
