Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A finely-crafted film of people and ideas, of the sort more common before the movie mainstream became a sausage factory."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It's Kate Beckinsale who is fantastic and she is able to hold the strong premise long enough to keep my interest in a politically-charged thriller."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"While it won't change the world it certainly deserves to be seen, especially as this is probably Beckinsale's strongest dramatic performance in several years."
‑ Henry Northmore, The List
"Premda je re%u017Eiser ljevi%u010Dar, film se te%u0161ko mo%u017Ee okarakterizirati kao jo%u0161 jedna holivudska propovijed protiv Bushove Amerike"
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"Alda's performance is a real stand-out, but all the actors are in fine form, to include Angela Basset, Noah Wyle and David Schwimmer."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Every once in a while, for reasons as random as a Hollywood executive's taste or an economic meltdown, a perfectly decent movie slips through the cracks, never receives a theatrical release and is relegated to the purgatory called straight-to-DVD."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"I thought the performances were great, particularly Vera Farmiga."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Its surprising focus on motherhood and its strong female protagonist give this story a human interest angle."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"Should find favor with audiences eager for movies driven by characterization, ideas and the performances of actors whose screen presence offers as much justification for the existence of cinema as any camera trick, flashy montage or special effect."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Yes, it's inspired by the despicable Bush-Cheney real life CIA outing but Lurie makes it very much his own."
‑ Stephen Schaefer, Boston Herald
"Writer-director Lurie makes dramas that whole-headedly engage ethical quandaries yet dodge easy judgments."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"All this plays out in brisk fashion, and the actors, who also include Alan Alda as Rachel's venerable lawyer, mostly seem to be having a high old time."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Proving she can switch the lights on (or at least be guided to them), Kate Beckinsale gives a career-best performance in Rod Lurie's star-studded, substantive rumination on First Amendment attacks and governmental accountability."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"It's hard to put a finger on anything actually wrong with this earnest drama of politics, conscience, and democratic ideals... but it's equally difficult to embrace it enthusiastically, too."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Most moviegoers know Kate Beckinsale as that gorgeous babe in the skin tight leather pants in Underworld, but you will find a solid leading actress who leads a talented cast in Nothing But The Truth."
‑ Willie Waffle,
