Entertainment Weekly
"...If it doesn't put a lump in your throat, you need to have your throat checked..." 11/08/2002 p.89

DVD Verdict 10 of 10
Based on the book by acclaimed historian Stephen Ambrose, Band of Brothers is an intense, moving, astonishing, but above all, honest picture of ordinary men, transformed into elite men of valor, who did what needed to be done to defeat the great evil of their day...As befits the immense collective endeavor that is Band of Brothers, the acting is so natural and uniformly excellent...Few of these men are well known to the public, though you may recognize Ron Livingston (Office Space) and Neal McDonough (Star Trek: First Contact, Minority Report, Boomtown). Nevertheless, two men in particular are worthy of high praise. Donnie Wahlberg (The Sixth Sense, Boomtown) is so intense and focused as Carwood Lipton you can at least forgive his early years in the bubblegum boy-band New Kids on the Block. Likewise, even if you are an inveterate Friends hater, David Schwimmer's perfectly pitched turn as universally despised tyrant Lt. Sobel just may make you forget Friends (and his otherwise mediocre film career)...Exquisite drama and compelling history constructed with masterful writers, producers, and filmmakers, Band of Brothers is worthy of every word of praise it has received to date. Show it to friends and family and teach it in the schools--this is first-class all the way. - Nicholas Sylvain

Reel.com 9 of 10
If you came across a single episode of Band of Brothers while channel-surfing, it would be easy to dismiss it as a carbon copy of Saving Private Ryan. From its washed-out cinematography to its intrusively reverent score, the HBO miniseries emulates the 1998 World War II epic in almost every way. And little wonder, since Ryan director Steven Spielberg and star Tom Hanks executive-produced the project, with the latter even directing an episode...However, as a whole, Band of Brothers is a wholly different creature. While Ryan lauded martyrdom in the name of duty, Brothers' central message is about saving the khaki-clad keester of the soldier in the foxhole next door. It's a more humanistic theme, closer to Black Hawk Down in spirit, making the series accessible to those both for and against military intervention...Besides making for solid war drama, the soldiers' rapport with the audience also enhances the action sequences; explosions have a lot greater impact when they're blowing someone you care about to smithereens, and Brothers has more explosions than any other miniseries -- or film -- ever made. From D-Day assaults on German positions to a shattering artillery fusillade during the Battle of the Bulge, the series contains a staggering amount of ultra-violent, ultra-realistic combat. - Tor Thorsen
