“Almost Sunrise a documentary by Michael Collins about two Iraq war veterans who take a 2,700-mile walk, adds to the canvas primarily by deepening the picture of what troubles many veterans.” — Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

“Exploring the ramifications of that tragic state of affairs while introducing a concept dubbed “Moral Injury,” Almost Sunrise makes for powerful viewing.” — Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

Almost Sunrise presents a journey that is very much worth the time of anyone who’s concerned about the effect war has on our brothers and sisters who fight — which should translate to ‘everyone.’” — Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com

“One of the most heartfelt and enlightening documentaries of the year. It should be mandatory for all soldiers to watch it prior to enlistment.” — Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru

“The film presents, but does not dwell gratuitously on, the horrors seen but rather quietly follows Tom and Anthony in their walking journey back from hell.” — Bradley Gibson, Film Threat

“The film provides a valuable chance to walk in the shoes of men we might not otherwise get to know.” — Rob Thomas, Madison Movie
