Critic Reviews of "Tears of the Sun"New York Daily NewsApril 22, 2003
Will a thinking audience really buy the image of helpless, grateful people bestowing kisses and victory songs upon Willis as the representative of all things American: power, guts, compassion?New York ObserverApril 04, 2003
Deserves the bad reviews and the lackluster earnings it has accumulated thus far.Rolling StoneMarch 12, 2003
Fuqua ... can stage action, but he can't save a trivializing, reactionary script featuring a Hollywood star (read America) as a global savior.Village VoiceMarch 11, 2003
This Black Hawk Down theft is a trial by cliché.New York Magazine/VultureMarch 09, 2003
In a movie with so much graphic suffering by innocent Africans, it's a bit disconcerting that so much loving attention is paid to Bruce Willis's anguished mug.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Shamelessly one-sided with cheesy wooden dialogue.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 23, 2007
The movie regales us with the heroics of a (mostly) white American platoon picking off anonymous black savages.DVDTalk.comMay 28, 2005
A huge screaming bore of a war flick with a big plate of pretentiousness on the side.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 29, 2005
...an unapologetic paean to the nobility of the American foot solider.F5 (Wichita, KS)July 06, 2004
A tale of courage so facile and off-handedly racist that only Hollywood could have invented it. It confuses slaughter with action, and it's stupid, too.Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)January 06, 2004
... Fuqua relies on old-fashioned, gung-ho heroics and the stern face of Bruce Willis to carry the show.
