Rating: 2.5/4 -- Cross of Iron would almost seem a proper mea culpa by Peckinpah for his controversial career. Full Review
This was Peckinpah's last important work and his only war movie. Full Review
Cross of Iron is not a musical but it makes me wanta sing "It Seems To Me I've Seen That War Before," - only without so much blood and gore. Full Review
Los Angeles Free Press
...[The film] retains a profound kinetic charge...
Sight and Sound
The storytelling is vivid, lurid, cynical and at times almost grotesque in its violence.
Sight and Sound
Rating: B -- Goes to extremes to paint a picture of war as insane. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
A very strong anti-war message film, set during World War II and told entirely from the German perspective. A German Army Sergeant doggedly struggles to keep his platoon intact while surviving the horrors of the Russian front in 1943.

- Color by Technicolor. Shot in Yugoslavia.
- At the end of the film is a quote from Bertolt Brecht: "Don't rejoice in his defeat, you men. For though the world stood up and stopped the bastard, the bitch that bore him is in heat again."
- Additional cast: Roger Fritz (Lt. Triebig), Vadim Glowna (Kern), Fred Stillkrauth (Schnurrbart), Burkhardt Driest (Maag), Dieter Schidor (Anselm), Michael Nowka (Dietz), Veronique Vendell (Marga), Arthur Brauss (Zoll), and Slavco Stimac (Russian Boy).
