Colin Farrell gives a good performance in a film that would've problably sucked if less talented actors were on hand. The direction is incompetent, by Joel Schumacher, of course. This is a better effort.... Full review

As a grunt who went through Fort Polk in the early 70's I found this movie to stir the most memories, good and bad. There was a little much leeway given, for instance smoking in the barracks, guitars and other personnel... Full review

This movie takes the interesting point of view of soilders in training for the Vietnam War. One soilder in particular, Bozz (played by Colin Farrell), directly opposes his army superiors and the war. Colin Farrell is excellent. Many have criticised his... Full review

Its Farrells intense performance that makes Tigerland such a powerful indictment of the madness of war and prevents it from becoming just another cliched Nam movie. His star quality was certainly evident at the London Film Festival premiere of Tigerland last year when Schumacher introduced the actor to a riotous reception from the late night audience. ...

Tigerland simply yomps over territory already ridiculously well covered by everything from Private Benjamin to Full Metal Jacket. Much has been made of Schumachers use of hand-held cameras and gritty film stock, but to be honest hes hardly re-inventing himself. ... Full Review

Shot on digital video, which lends it a suitably grainy, documentary quality, "Tigerland" is set in Louisiana in 1971 at a boot camp preparing young Americans for Vietnam. Despite his usual ability to spend more time on set design than he does on actors, Schumacher handles the more intimate setting with great skill, aided by some great acting, deft cinematography from Darren Aronofsky's cohort Matthew Libatique, and a phenomenally charismatic central performance by unknown Irishman Colin Farrell. ...

While this is an admirable statement, the film lacks any real power in making it: rather like the brutal training the troops go through, it's all a bit of a slog. The motley crew of conscripts is led by Boz ( Colin Farrell ), a reluctant leader if ever there was one. ... Full Review
