Movie Reviews

  • uninspired biopic sheds little light on unfathomable maritime mystery
    by Stephen Dalton [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • this retelling of Donald Crowhurst's round-the-world adventure should still keep you hooked
    3 of 5 by Larushka Ivan-Zadeh [Metro ]
  • The Mercy stands as a darker, sadder version of those many stories about bumbling British underdogs trying to beat the odds through their sheer good nature and force of character
    4 of 5 by Geoffrey Macnab [Independent (UK) ]
  • The Mercy is a powerful and compelling story told with care and compassion by a brilliant cast
    4 of 5 by Terry Payne [Radio Times ]
  • directed with even-keeled intelligence by James Marsh, and buoyed by a performance of customary reserve and resolve from Colin Firth, "The Mercy" tells its story --once headline material, now poignantly little-remembered
    by Guy Lodge [Variety ]
  • despite the hint of a stiff-upper-lip kind of reserve, this is astonishingly brutal. And Firth's performance makes this dark, dark story land
    4 of 5 by Andrew Lowry [Empire Magazine ]
  • Colin Firth's best performance in years; Through all the film's bumps and scrapes, Firth does invest a lot of commendable energy in helping us grasp Crowhurst's besieged state of mind
    3 of 5 by Tim Robey [The Telegraph (UK) ]
  • a truly compelling character study of this one man; The Mercy is a beautifully crafted and moving account of this one's quite troublesome sense of delusion, and Marsh has structured his tale wonderfully
    4 of 5 by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys ]
