Critic Reviews of "In The Valley Of Elah"Associated PressSeptember 26, 2007
This is Jones' show and he makes you feel a father's fear and loss in ways that are subtly heartbreaking, never melodramatic.Miami HeraldSeptember 22, 2007
The movie isn't nearly as obvious or redundant as writer-director Paul Haggis's previous film, the Oscar-winning Crash, but it still feels like the work of someone trying too hard to enlighten you.Toronto StarSeptember 21, 2007
The failure to avoid pat answers and cheap grandstanding dogs Haggis here as surely as it did in the overrated Crash, and robs In the Valley of Elah of much of its power.Orlando SentinelSeptember 21, 2007
In the Valley of Elah is another in a long line of great Tommy Lee Jones performances.Houston ChronicleSeptember 21, 2007
[Haggis'] self-serious tone becomes wearisome, and he fails to explore how the military failed its men while clumsily laying a guilt trip at its feet.Detroit NewsSeptember 21, 2007
There should be enough gut-troubling truth to In the Valley of Elah to make it transcend political squabbling.Suite101.comSeptember 24, 2010
It's a testament to "Elah's" stoicism that the heartbreak at how dishonesty undoes decades of dignity pierces without ever patronizing. It's an unforgettable, angry film that understands several simple thank-yous can trump eruptive, emotive speeches.CinePassionAugust 27, 2009
Condescending liberal dreck like In the Valley of Elah is just as awful as a thousand Fox-News commentatorsFayetteville Free WeeklyFebruary 02, 2009
In the Valley of Elah is a powerful, emotional indictment of what contemporary war can do to young men. It is a potent moral tale. This is not your father's war.ReelzChannel.comAugust 25, 2008
Jones's performance is quiet, intense, and stunning.Uruguay TotalJune 26, 2008
Un drama detectivesco conmovedor que termina siendo un alegato contra la guerra más contundente que cualquier discurso pacifista.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsMarch 03, 2008
