What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Diane de Beer Politics vs power of attorney
Paul Boekkooi Spporadies goed, maar kort emosie
Pete Hammond A thriller that's riveting from start to finish.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Those most interested in American history will probably find The Conspirator most valuable. Those who want a historical romance or a courtroom potboiler will be disappointed. You have to give credit to Redford, Wright and McAvoy, and the other filmmakers. Not many films this smart can be made.
Tomatometer The Conspirator is well cast and tells a worthy story, but many viewers will lack the patience for Redford's deliberate, stagebound approach.
