What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry Lions for Lambs is good agitprop, but bad cinema.
Jacques Liebenberg Tom Cruise en Meryl Streep blink uit.
Carina Chocano Dull policy debate fails to deliver.
Peter Feldman A-list cast can't save this heavy-handed plot
Nev Pierce It's too pious to be entertaining, too polite to be convincing and, like a weapon of mass destruction, takes a lot longer to deploy than 45 minutes.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert here is a long stretch toward the beginning of the film when we're interested, under the delusion that it's going somewhere. When we begin to suspect it's going in circles, our interest flags.
Tomatometer Feels like a disjointed series of lectures, rather than a sharp narrative.
