      KB B It had a real sense of impending doom but the ending was kind of phoned in and extremely disappointing. Otherwise I would have given it 3.5 stars. Watch if there's nothing else on. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/26/23 Full Review Steve D It is obvious where it is going and the characters are flat. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Convincing performances & great Alberta locations shine in this tension-laden drama that shows just how frightening and far-reaching ignorance really is - both then & now. Spoiled only slightly by a few missteps & a rushed ending. #nitrosMovieChallenge Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/22 Full Review Audience Member Dark and scary with an Debra Winger and a very good Tom Berenger. Hard to sleep after that… Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Already in 1988 Costa-Gavras predicted Parler, aka the AMERICAN Liberty Net, "Devoted to the Free Exchange of Ideas" Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel The filmmakers end up with a jarring, often suspenseful movie that, ultimately, misses the mark. Jun 12, 2013 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Betrayed is a film that left me in turmoil, torn between the strong sympathies I felt for the characters and the fundamental doubts I had about the plot. Rated: 2/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader Rated: 2/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Fred Beauford The Crisis Hollywood at its worst... [Betrayed contains] one of the most provocative, and ultimately, irresponsible scenes in modern motion picture history. Nov 14, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Is it possible for anyone to take Betrayed seriously?... Underneath its sanctimonious appearance, this is a creaking cart of evil. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 15, 2022 Full Review Hilary Mantel The Spectator Winger and Berenger do what they can. Aug 30, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
