What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Helen Herimbi Exploring the darkness behind US politics
Deborah Young The cut and thrust of politics
Sara Maria Cizcarrondo But only critics may love Clooney's prestige-y, technically competent, well cast drama-and Oscar voters might agree. It's prestige-y, technically competent and lousy with the sex appeal of a phenomenal cast. Medicore as it is, it's at least a conversation piece that's polite enough not to come out on an election year.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Clooney the director brings his actor's experience to the job and attends closely to performance. The impression remains, however, that he believes this movie to be more of an expose than it is.
C. Fuchs The fact that it isn't novel or a particularly upbeat or positive look at politics might turn off some viewers. For me, the latter is what makes it an important film, while the efforts of all of those involved makes it an artistic success.
Tomatometer While not exactly exposing revelatory truths, The Ides of March is supremely well-acted drama that moves at a measured, confident clip.
