    To see this seamless "reconstruction" - consisting of some 15 entirely new sequences as well as augmentations to 23 others - is to behold a masterpiece revealed.
  2. A grand-style, idiosyncratic war epic, with wonderful poetic ideas, intense emotions, and haunting images rich in metaphysical portent.

    Marvin's performance, much enhanced by "The Reconstruction," is a marvel.

    Marvin's taciturn performance--a moving demonstration of masculine grace under pressure--may be his finest.

    It's a terrific war yarn, a picture of palpable raw power which manages both Intense intimacy and great scope at the same time. (Review of Original Release)
  6. What the movie may lack in "Saving Private Ryan"-style gloss, it more than makes up for in authenticity, or, in other words, heart.
  7. The combination of old-time Hollywood valor and ahead-of-its-time surprises makes this restoration a big event.
