Movie Reviews

  • Olmos is therefore the "cool" teacher presenting serious subject matter in a colorful way. And to that end he succeeds
    Review rate : B- by Jared Mobarak [The Film Stage ]
  • Olmos balances a grim tale of corporate exploitation, environmental degradation and the plight of the American farmer with delightful buddy-comedy pairings; The significant acting chops of this trio of leads is the primary reason the film is worth seeing
    by Beandrea July [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Kate Bosworth shines in a juicy role as a cigar-smoking oil matriarch in this drama; But unlike the films "Dark Waters" or "Erin Brockovich", "The Devil Has a Name" isn't grounded in a specific case and loses much of its moral power as a result
    3 of 5 by Ellen E. Jones [The Guardian ]
  • eclectic mix of actors plays the heroes and villains, most of them peculiar in some way; Written by Robert McEveety (and what a crackling and often darkly funny script this is), "The Devil Has a Name" is a master class in casting
    3 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • awkward, mature drama about environmental pollution; This whistleblower drama, with its odd touches of comedy and noir, certainly has its heart in the right place, but the story is frustratingly, awkwardly told, and it ultimately amounts to very little
    2 of 5 by Jeffrey M. Anderson [Common Sense Media ]
  • a well-meaning but muddled drama; Clearly well-intentioned, "The Devil Has a Name" means to deliver an inspirational lesson about the depravity of big industry and the power of the little guy. But it's mostly a muddle
    by Ben Kenigsberg [New York Times ]
  • "The Devil Has a Name" has no clear focus or crystallized idea of the story it wants to tell beyond the simplicity of the workingman is good and oil companies are evil
    2 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
