What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith A serious Franco fails to provide full story.
Riëtte Grobler Waarheid of leuens?
John DeFore A tale of murder.
Tomatometer James Franco and Jonah Hill make a watchable pair, but True Story loses their performances -- and the viewer's interest -- in a muddled movie that bungles its fact-based tale.
|Movie Review Query Engine|
Staff evaluation Gripping, disturbing drama based on real murders.
