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.
I wish someone would tell me why Who'll Stop the Rain? was made, what motivates its characters, and what it's really about.
This is Karel Reisz's best work, which fits into the crime genre. [Full Review in Spanish]
Something of a mixed bag, occasionally feeling likely a cheaply constructed thriller using Vietnam as a selling point.
Anchored by great turns from Moriarty, Nolte and Tuesday Weld, Reisz version of Stone's book is one of the most intriguing films about Vietnam, at once a tale about a paricularly divisive war and a parable about moral chaos and personal disintegration.
