What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden For two hours we share in the turmoil of a real mother, not the world's most photographed woman just playing another part. Forget Walter, Jolie is the real changeling here.
Peter Feldman This incredible story marks the first time Eastwood's signature themes have found expression through the experiences of a woman, and by omitting any distracting displays by macho males, he only heightens his depiction of the helpless rage and anguish experienced by the victims' families.
Ivan Sadler While the quality of Changeling is undeniable, it is rather slow, so for anyone looking for edge of your seat sort of stuff might want to think twice.

Roger Ebert Clint Eastwood's Changeling made me feel sympathy, and then anger, and then back around again.
Jason Anderson While the movie’s best stretches serve as further proof of Eastwood’s mastery, Changeling is also ungainly and unsatisfying at times.
James Berardinelli Clint Eastwood's Changeling falls into a common trap: by trying to do too much, it accomplishes too little.
C. Fuchs But without getting wrapped up in the proceedings, it's too easy to see Eastwood pulling the strings, thus preventing Changeling from being one of his better, morally ambiguous works. Decent but not great.
Tomatometer Beautifully shot and well-acted, Changeling is a compelling story that unfortunately gives in to convention too often.
