"[A] solid, stirring new adaptation."
— Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"This jaw-dropping vision of the Great War movingly captures the humanity amid the frying shrapnel."
— Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
"The most potent cinematic adaptation yet — a wrenching but rewarding experience in every imaginable way."
— Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News
"This is a film about the boys who don’t come home, and its story proves both deeply affecting—and surprisingly timeless."
— Matthew Jackson, The A.V. Club
"Another stunning adaptation of the classic anti-war novel: epic and horrific, in equal doses. War has rarely felt this wretchedly, desperately pointless."
— John Nugent , Empire Magazine
"Based on Erich Maria Remarque’s 1929 World War I novel, the German film on Netflix is unsparing in its portrayal of the horrors of battle. It’s sensory-overload, tough-though-rewarding viewing."
— Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
"Making great use of 21st century technology, this latest version is the most visually sweeping and impressive version yet, and it comes close to matching the original for its visceral, gut-punch effect."
— Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"This is remarkable, if harrowing, film-making. Moments of striking beauty – sunlight carved into exultant rays by skeletal winter trees – are almost as shocking and disquieting as the scenes of suffering."
— Wendy Ide, The Observer (UK)
"It’s visually stunning despite holding no punches in its portrayal of war’s violent, dirty, and gory nature. Above all, Berger delivers a chilling cinematic experience that should become mandatory viewing for everyone in today’s social climate."
— Francisca Tinoco, We Got This Covered
"This is a war movie from the perspective of the losers, visually spectacular but by turns infuriating and heartbreaking. “All Quiet” is excessive, but it probably needs to be; the screenplay by Berger, Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell takes a dark story and makes it even darker."
— Steve Pond, TheWrap
"This sprawling German-language adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's classic WWI novel is a film that feels both aesthetically dazzling and full of necessary truths: an antiwar drama that transcends the bombast of propaganda mostly just because it's so artfully and indelibly made."
— Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
