What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry Mighty good.
Laetitia Pople Angelina Jolie lewer 'n trefseker vertolking.
Kenneth Turan Balancing despair and hope.
Rebekah Kendal Harrowing and uncomfortable
Peter Feldman This production sadly removes the emotional core that binds the viewer with the unfolding drama
Ivan Sadler Don't miss it.
Stella Papamichael It's a tender story of grace under pressure, and although Jolie hasn't got her finger fully on the pulse of Mariane, the sense of realism lends power.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert As Mariane Pearl, Angelina Jolie gives a riveting performance that relies on inner conviction.
Adam Nayman One doesn't take much away from A Mighty Heart, but it's still easy to admire everything that went into it.
James Berardinelli The film is fascinating and at times disturbing, but Winterbottom's arms-length style mutes any emotional impact.
Peter Travers The film belongs to Jolie. She won an Oscar for 1999’s Girl, Interrupted, but this is by far her best performance, strong and true in every detail.
Overall, I found the film to be good, but I just wish I had felt that it was great.
Tomatometer An urgent yet tactful film about a difficult subject.
