Movie Reviews

  • you can barely glimpse in this modestly affecting movie
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • to American ears inured in this election year to all manner of appeals to our worst instincts, those are strange - but inspirational - words, indeed
    by David Edelstein [New York Magazine ]
  • this is acting of the highest order
    Review rate : C+ by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • there is far more softness than steel in "The Iron Lady"
    3 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the story features a strained collection of fictional reminiscences, archival footage and parliamentary clashes
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • the filmmakers turn a self-made, highly original woman into something of a cliche
    Review rate : D by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • the film presents the historical record through aged Thatcher's stream of consciousness-an obviously biased and unreliable narrator
    by Karina Longworth [Village Voice ]
  • the effect adds up less to an understanding of Margaret Thatcher than to an appreciation of what really good prosthetics can do in the hands of a world-class pro
    Review rate : B by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • shallow but satisfying
    by David Edelstein [New York Magazine ]
  • not teaching audiences anything new
    Review rate : B- by Clay Cane [ ]
  • margaret thatcher with a richly conflicted center that befits one of the most divisive figures in 20th century politics
    by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • let it be said that Ms. Streep is galvanizing, even as the film slogs through too much information and not nearly enough illumination
    Review rate : D by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
  • it's a truism, and therefore largely true, that American actors approach the characters they play from the inside out-psychoanalyzing the role
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]
  • I do not know if the inclusion of this bit of musing, which the audience is clearly meant to get right behind and cheer on
    Review rate : D by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • fails as a biography, it succeeds incontestably as a showcase
    2 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • but the film's mealymouthed stance toward its subject's politics undercuts Streep's efforts: There's neither room for her to be a tragic heroine
    by Leslie Felperin [Variety ]
