    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown May 25, 2009

    Messiah War has two chapters left to live up to its pedigree. Unfortunately, I don’t that that’s enough time to get the job done. While the story adds more to Cable, it has been distracting from the more interesting plots that were occurring in X-Force. It’s certainly not awful, and this issue is a step in the right direction, but I can’t help but feel slightly disappointed by the whole affair. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Michael Colbert Jun 2, 2009

    This is chapter five of "Messiah War" and odds are youre either on-board or not by this point. In every review I've done for X-Force I always point out that its the big budget summer movie of X-titles and I would be remiss if I didnt do so now. Once again, this isnt a bad thing; Kyle and Yost hit all the right notes at all the right times. Just check out the full page shot of Cable with his big guns striding melodramatically into the source light saying, "Give me the girl, Stryfe." It sums up all you need to know about what makes X-Force work. Low Art? Debatable. Visceral and fun. You betcha! Read Full Review

    The highlight of sorts is Chris Yosts character writing, as he nails the voices of each character here, but it simply isnt enough to save this ultimately forgettable and easy-to-skip issue. Read Full Review

    Unless something happens quick, "Messiah War" is proving to be a lackluster sequel to "Messiah Complex." If you've been following the crossover since the beginning, I'd venture to say you could even skip X-Force #15 and not miss a thing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan May 26, 2009

    All in all, we get yet another baby step in the overall (frankly uninteresting) saga of the maybe, possibly, sort-of mutant messiah Hope, and lots and lots of characters created by Rob Liefeld yelling at each other and blasting away. Even Clayton Crain's crazed artwork can't quite save this from mediocrity. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny May 28, 2009

    X-Force #15 proves just how flimsy the “Messiah War” story is. While it's cool to see Stryfe and Apocalypse back in action, don't let the nostalgia fool you into thinking the “War” is living up to the hype. The wheels are spinning, yes, but the story is going absolutely nowhere… Read Full Review
