What the critics say: 

More than 20 years after Mr. Cobb’s novel was first published, Mr. Kubrick reminded us that human folly is rarely checked for long. A half-century on, he is still right.

Kirk Douglas gives one of his finest performances as the intelligent and courageous Col. Dax.

The sardonic rhetoric may be laid on a little heavily at times, but the movie is blunt and scornfully brilliant.

While the subject is well handled and enacted in a series of outstanding characterizations, it seems dated and makes for grim screen fare.

This masterpiece still packs a wallop, though nothing in it is as simple as it may first appear; audiences are still arguing about the final sequence, which has been characterized as everything from a sentimental cop-out to the ultimate cynical twist.

The final scene, in which Kubrick presents close-ups of soldiers watching a captured German girl being forced to sing for their pleasure is nothing short of masterful.
