Critics reviews

Its greatest assets, however, are Hauer’s effortlessly charismatic performance and a scampering, devil-may-care energy that manifests itself in Jost Vacano’s aggressive, largely handheld camerawork. It’s about as freewheeling as a World War II movie can get while maintaining a sense of perspective about the reality of the war—a product of Verhoeven’s anarchist vision, through and through.
