Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 12/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Loach turns history into grand drama with economy, soul and an impassioned cast, particularly the charismatic Cillian Murphy."
Ultimate DVD - 12/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "[P]rovocative, powerful filmmaking up there with his best."
New York Times - 03/16/2007
"[I]n watching THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY...it is possible to appreciate both Mr. Loach's passion and his sense of nuance."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/23/2007
"Loach gives good righteous nobility. He paints the film in dark, rain-on-the-emerald-moor colors, and he provides fascinating details of how the Irish guerilla struggle developed." -- Grade: B
Entertainment Weekly - 09/07/2007
"Ken Loach ably captures the battle against British tyranny with an intimate tale..." -- Grade: B+
USA Today - 09/07/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Loach's intimate, natural style always makes us feel as if we're spying on something..."
Wall Street Journal - 05/19/2010
"[The filmmakers] are unsparing in their portrait of the Black and Tans, and the ruthless violence that the Republicans visit on Britain's forces."
