What the Critics say
Tomatometer The Mauritanian takes a frustratingly generic approach to a real-life story that might have been inspirational in other hands, but Tahar Rahim’s performance elevates the uneven material.
Jeffrey M. Anderson Effective, horrifying drama about Guantanamo Bay prison.
Jim Judy While I was engaged with the characters and story, I never felt as enthralled as I felt like I should have been.
