His young, enraged Marine buddies carry out a brutal retaliation. Their violent house search leads to the massacre of 24 people, many of whom are women and children--tragic causalities of a war they cannot control. The Marines, too, are victims, attacked, wounded, and forced to respond in the way they have been trained. But when events occur at great speed and under extreme stress, can Marines in the line of fire be accused of murder? (HanWay Films) Expand

  1. Searing, powerful, and morally entangled.
  2. With its dialogue largely improvised by many who had seen extensive combat in Iraq, Battle for Haditha has a gripping authenticity lacking in other similarly themed dramas.
  3. Battle for Haditha has some of the raw energy of Sam Fuller's war pictures, which weren't subtle but left you energized by their ambivalence (there was no good or evil). It's a hell of a picture.
  4. 70
    Largely improvised, cast with ex-Marines and Iraqi refugees and shot in Jordan. It might just be the movie this war has been waiting for.
  5. Lacking in subtlety and nuance, Broomfield's nerve-jangling movie nonetheless succeeds in showing the war from various vantage points. And from wherever one's standing, the view is profoundly disturbing.
  6. Mr. Broomfield maintains a level of cool detachment throughout. That's to the good of the movie, which, though technically exemplary, falters dramatically on occasion, becoming dangerously close to overheated whenever the characters speak for any length.
  7. 25
    The film is an exposé only of a filmmaker's senseless contempt for the military.

    Good watch, very poignant and sad, though sometimes it may be necessary war hurts everyone.
