Movie Reviews

Unanimous praise -- amazing reviews
Roger Sherman | New York, NY | 11/22/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film received amazing reviews. I am the filmmaker, and these are really reviews:

...An astounding array of stories about an unbelievable collection of unexpected heroes. ...This special is awe-inspiring ...that, if I could, I would award it four Medals of Honor. It is that good and that honest. ...Do yourself a favor. ...All in all, there won't be anything else more worth your while on TV that night. I checked.Don't miss it. New York Post

"Medal of Honor" that rare thing -- a film shot through with the most emotional of themes that succeeds in rendering portraits of unimaginable heroism with discipline and dignity. ...Along with story after story of heroic enterprise, accompanied by relevant, splendid footage, this film ...provides a hard-minded account of the medal's history. Wall Street Journal

Sherman's film arrives as an antidote for spiritual cynicism, a bracing potion that serves not merely to treat our Election Day hangover, but to remind us why so many continue to believe in American exceptionalism. Tampa Tribune

A breathtaking look at a rare breed. TV Week

Yes, there's a lot of junk on TV. But the medium can also rise to the occasion quite beautifully. ...The richly drawn stories will stay with you for a long time after you turn off the set. MSNBC"
