The Chocolate War was adapted to the screen in a 1988 film production directed by Keith Gordon and starring John Glover as Brother Leon, Han Mitchell-Smith as Jerry, and Wally Ward as Archie. The film was not particularly well received by either the public or the critics. Washington Post film critic Hal Hinson noted: “Though it has been adapted … from Robert Cormier’s young adult novel … this film’s true source seems to be every other schoolboy story ever told.”
