Critic Consensus: Though not quite as sharp as Joseph Heller's seminal novel, Catch-22's handsomely rendered, hilariously horrifying exploration of war still soars thanks to its stellar cast and reverent adherence to its source material.

News & Interviews for Catch-22: Miniseries
Abbott is very, very watchable - he proves his leading man status as a charismatic thesp who can be entrusted to carry a weighty project.
Its sense of loss and creeping madness was deftly woven into a narrative that was often laugh-out-loud funny.
It's a remarkably good-looking, high-quality piece of work all round -- and it returns the story to its historical context.
It is very, very good. Its writers, Luke Davies and David Michôd, have done an incredibly smooth job given the way that, on the page, Heller makes the reader do so much of the work... But on some level, I cannot quite get fully involved with it.
In a tale full of paradoxes, the style is both glossy and visceral, which feels exactly right.
