New York Daily News
May be the best movie of the year.
90
Los Angeles Times
A dead-on tale of corporate power, courage, cowardice and how we live.
90
Is still sleek, gripping entertainment with a raw-nerved, changeable camera style that helps to amplify its meaning.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
Power to absorb, entertain and anger.
88
USA Today
At its best, hard-hitting grown-up cinema (rare these days) and a movie blessed with a villain (Big Tobacco) for which all gloves can be removed and heaved into the next county.
88
Chicago Tribune
This is a first-class muckraking melodrama: an admirable picture.
83
Portland Oregonian
Earnest, smart, handsome, well-acted and made with mastery.
75
San Francisco Examiner
A meticulously assembled dramatization of a grossly controversial moment in TV history.
75
Entertainment Weekly
A good but far from great movie because it portrays truth telling in America as far more imperiled than it is.
70
An exciting dramatization of the strange events that marked the turning of the legal tide against Big Tobacco, and a particularly dark moment in the annals of CBS News.
