Critic Reviews for The Report

All Critics (225) | Top Critics (35)

The hackneyed script has the effect of lending an unmerited nobility to the politicians and bureaucrats on-screen.

December 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Director Scott Z Burns captures the events in a cold, rigorously factual, and largely dispassionate manner. But that's the point.

December 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5

The film, written and directed by Scott Z. Burns, takes its cue from the stern dedication of its hero; the result feels pressurized, disheartening, and fraught.

A film as thought-provoking as this should pack more thrills; the majority of the suspense is generated from Driver's countenance, not Burns' ability to captivate an audience.

November 19, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This velocity, along with the performances, helps turn a movie that's essentially about a 6,700-page report (eventually boiled down to 525) into riveting storytelling.

November 19, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"The Report" leaves you feeling exhausted and defeated, but that's its intent. Mission accomplished.
