Movie Reviews

  • you are meant to feel exhilarated and inspired, newly aware of the plight of suffering people and awed by one man's dedication to their cause
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • this is a legitimate and troubling question and, in a more thoughtful movie
    by Peter Rainer [Christian Science Monitor ]
  • the umpteenth onscreen iteration of a white savior aiding the most desperate in Africa
    by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice ]
  • the movie is tedious, grisly and too long. The story never delves into the lives of the children
    0.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • the film's dramatic opacity can be maddening
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • the film never gets beyond pulp psychology. It's like Machete remade as an awards-bait snoozer
    Review rate : D by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • just snarls his way through the whole movie, and whatever good Sam Childers has actually accomplished - and is still accomplishing - is lost in movie mediocrity
    by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • it's hard to shake the uncomfortable sensation of watching yet another story that glorifies the white savior
    2 of 4 by Christy Lemire [Associated Press ]
  • it makes for a bumpy entry for most of the rest of the film's very good, but under-utilized cast
    by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • is like the AK-47 of dramas: mechanically well-constructed, not especially flashy, solidly built so as to take a few knocks without jamming ... but ultimately so scattershot when it fires all its rounds that it's hard to tell what
    2.5 of 5 by James Rocchi [MSN Movies ]
  • is left with a story that lacks much of a satisfying climax or anything like a proper ending
    2.5 of 4 by Dave McGinn [Globe and Mail ]
  • good intentions are all that matters to this film by director whose intention it is to win some good awards
    1.5 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
  • believing he's giving Butler a pulpit from which to confess his acting sins
    2 of 4 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • an impressively heroic true-life story that unfortunately doesn't go far enough in examining its unusual hero
    by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter ]
