  1. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film I Declare War

    This is a film about the kids' nature, made exclusively with kids, which shouldn’t be seen by kids. Review and Rating:

  2. msmichel's rating of the film I Declare War

    A neighbourhood game of war attempts to be a microcosm of human nature and our warlike instincts with some but not complete success. Cast of pre-teens are very good but buckle under a self important script that fizzles out. Worth a watch but 'Lord of the Flies' or 'War of the Buttons' this isn't. "You're dead....go home".

  3. dave gunn's rating of the film I Declare War

    This was one of the most unique films I've ever seen! At first, the gimmick of a kid's imaginary game of war being shown this way was so funny to me, but once that amusement wore off, the all-child cast actually managed to draw me more than any modern action film ever has.

  4. House 0f Leaves's rating of the film I Declare War

    I was sold on this film as being 'Stand by Me'. It has interesting moments, but that it is not.

  5. Matt Richards's rating of the film I Declare War

    A very clever play on the rules of engagement that uses a game of 'capture the flag', played by a group of young teenagers to mirror all the angst, loyalty, hostility and dirty politics of real war. With sly nods to the breaking of UN-conventions like those against torture the film also raises the question of the cause of conflict from the ego level. 3 stars
