Movie Reviews

  • Tom Hanks’ first Western is a winner, rich with relevant themes and ideas
    3.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • Tom Hanks can of course find the humanity and decency in anyone he's called on to play, and he does that here, but it's in service of a story that starts out sluggish and never picks up. In short, it's a slow "News" day
    Review rate : C by Adam Graham [Detroit News ]
  • the movie offers few surprises and even less alacrity; and yet there's a cumulative weight to World that feels, if hardly new, still worth sitting through
    Review rate : B+ by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • soulful, steady, stirring; this is a lovingly crafted drama that conveys a gentle message about examining the pain of our past to find a place of peace, belonging and even joy in our future
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a bold and fun western adventure; It's many things all at once, as it is as fun as it is emotional, and as thrilling as it is charming, but it makes a fantastic blend, and an excellent cinematic experience
    4 of 5 by Eric Eisenberg [CinemaBlend ]
  • "News of the World" is like a movie-length contemplation of the values and ideas that Tom Hanks has come to embody onscreen -- steadfastness, probity, a normal person doing the right thing
    3 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • "News of the World" is about the power of a good story. Who better to tell it than Tom Hanks?; Hanks and Paul Greengrass know, and show, the power of words; Watching them together feels comfortable, even when their characters don't share the feeling
    4 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • "News of the World" is about facing adversity and how people can support one another in doing it; In between those touching character-based moments are some sequences of great tension; This is one of the best, most engrossing Westerns of recent years
    3.5 of 4 by Mike McGranaghan [Aisle Seat ]
  • "News of the World" is a standard Western with a predictable story, though it's elevated by Tom Hanks and Helena Zengel's performances
    3.5 of 5 by Chris Agar [ScreenRant ]
  • "News of the World" doing a lot right as a film; It’s consistently engaging, well-acted and encapsulates multiple genres, never reaching narrative greatness despite its sweeping scale. It’s a good movie the feature debut of Helena Zengel
    3.5 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
