Critic Reviews for The Visitors

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

It deserves much more attention than it got when it came out, and showcases Kazan's strengths as well as his weaknesses.

November 1, 2007 | Full Review…

One of Kazan's very worst films, this disappointing Vietnam War drama is mostly known now for featuring the screen debut of actor James Woods.

April 22, 2011 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Kazan's son Chris wrote the script and is probably to blame for most of the inadequacies.
