Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 10/06/2000
"...Mr. Schumacher has assembled a hard-working young cast led by the Irish actor Colin Farrell..."
USA Today - 10/06/2000
"...The rawest film ever made by Joel Schumacher..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
Entertainment Weekly - 09/29/2000
"...[Schumacher's] best, most affecting work since FALLING DOWN....Galvanizing passion..."
Rolling Stone - 10/12/2001
"...Colin Farrell excels....Schumacher and the actors prevail by fixing their sights on what happens to men on that last stop before the game of war becomes a grim reality..."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/2001
"...It's a fine showcase for spirited performances from a dozen up-and-coming actors..."
Total Film - 06/01/2001
"...FARRELL takes TIGERLAND by the scruff of the neck and shakes it to life....He's got the kind of relaxed, attention-commanding presence that screams 'STAR!!'..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/06/2000
"...[A] taut, spare drama, which is consistently fresh, engrossing and unpredictable....TIGERLAND is tightly constructed and culminates with a stunningly appropriate charge of ambiguity..."
Wall Street Journal - 06/04/2010
"Mr. Farrell seems to draw the camera toward him without giving it a tumble."
