Critic Reviews for The Report

All Critics (242) | Top Critics (55)

For a political thriller, The Report is more sad than revelatory, more melancholy than cathartic. Jones's work was not entirely in vain. His revelations of a cover-up, though heavily doctored, eventually were made public.

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

December 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Driver and Bening give detailed and thoughtful performances, and the film, though necessarily on the dry side, is riveting from start to finish.

December 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | 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 Report is a masterclass in how you build to a climax, especially when you can't rely on some big third-act action extravaganza.

November 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Report should piss you off. It should embarrass you. Maybe this time, we won't forget.
