  1. A gracious, eloquent film that by its end offers a ray of hope to the refugees able to look ahead and resist living in a past forever lost.

    This is a story about purgatory, though it goes by the name Camp Pendleton.
  3. 75
    Director Timothy Linh employs a delicate - but never sentimental - touch which, combined with strong performances from the principals and Kramer Morgenthau's vivid cinematography, makes for a transporting experience.
  4. Takes a humane look at an episode in recent history that's received little attention.
  5. Green Dragon's portrait of refugee angst is decidedly glossy; the grief and lostness are glimpsed rather than explored.
  6. 50
    The film is often moving and explores the discomfort inherent in the contacts between the American "hosts" and their "guests," but its effect is diluted by slow pacing and lengthiness.
  7. 30
    Loses its way in rhetorical excess and blatant sentimentality.
