Movie Reviews

  • the script is weak and the direction is weaker, as Levinson tries to walk a fine line on the issue of Paterno's involvement for the sake of the tacked-on finale. Fortunately, Pacino's performance counterbalances the problems with the film
    2 of 4 by David Wiegand [San Fransisco Chronicle ]
  • Pacino is compelling, but structural problems and thin supporting characters abound
    by Daniel Fienberg [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • His portrayal isn't as powerful or moving, though, and in some ways that's the conundrum of "Paterno" --it's a tragedy without a tragic hero
    by Mike Hale [New York Times ]
  • for what the film does with the subject under scrutiny, "Paterno" deserves all the praise revoked from the disgraced coach
    Review rate : A- by Ben Travers [Indiewire ]
