Critic Reviews

  1. 80
    If Fighting for Life is propaganda, it's the best kind, largely avoiding editorialization and instead focusing on simple human drama.
  2. These young men and women aren't in it for the money, or the glory; they only want to save lives and heal wounds. That's another kind of glory.
  3. Reviewed by: John Anderson
    The only people who seem immune to the politics of the Iraq War are also at its epicenter: the doctors and nurses who mend and tend to the wounded, and who provide the heart and soul of Terry Sanders' Fighting for Life.
  4. 63
    The doctors and nurses who care for America's wounded troops on the battlefield and in hospitals get their due in Fighting for Life.
  5. There are some heartbreaking moments here, from the reactions of recent amputees to the tearful doctors and nurses trying hard to remain professional. And there is no question that Sanders has discovered a worthy subject. He just hasn't found the right way to approach it.
