Critic Reviews for Who'll Stop the Rain
The movie works mostly because it's so well told on the narrative level.
A remarkably faithful and astute adaptation of a strong novel, the film condenses Stone's book, which won the National Book Award for fiction in 1975, without doing irreparable damage to its story, principal characters or larger meanings.
Who'll Stop the Rain is a suspense-adventure movie given greater weight and complexity by undertones of moral questions which, if unsolved, are at least raised.
Like the same year's more celebrated Vietnam War endeavors The Deer Hunter and Coming Home, this assured picture similarly examines the effects of the war on not only those who served but also those who remained stateside.
I wish someone would tell me why Who'll Stop the Rain? was made, what motivates its characters, and what it's really about.
