Ratings & Reviews

  1. Aardsy's rating of the film Battle Circus

    Drags from one scene to the next.

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Battle Circus

    Korean war film set in the heart of the US defense lines. Richard Brooks is not interested in the heroic attacks but rather in the heroic way a military hospital tries to make it between two Korean air raids. Recommended.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Battle Circus

    > Le film évite toute propagande guerrière. Les séquences sont d'une grande authenticité. De nombreuses scènes d'action spectaculaires et souvent fort émouvantes captent l'attention du spectateur...

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film Battle Circus

    Cool title, rather humdrum film though. Bogey and June have close to zero chemistry and just the movie on the whole drags and is just plain uninteresting. With so many other engaging and well made war pics, there just isnt much to recommend here.

  5. Sunrise's rating of the film Battle Circus

    There could be better chemistry between Bogart and Allyson, but what Brooks defines well is a military surgeon's unique view of what saves lives during war: harsh medical care and passionate affairs of life; revealing war's "circus" survival. Romantically soft-lit nurse flirtations rival moments in which death hovers around harshly-lit shrapnel operations or a loved one fallen by enemy fire without musical score.
