Maureen M. Hart Chicago Tribune More objective filmmakers might have delved a little deeper and produced something more real. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 20, 2007 Full Review Jeff Shannon Seattle Times It's an exercise in hero worship that couldn't be more justified, even though Wiesenthal would have been modestly embarrassed by the honor. Rated: 3/4 Aug 10, 2007 Full Review David Mattin BBC.com A tragic, inspiring film. Rated: 4/5 Jul 31, 2007 Full Review Kam Williams Sly Fox An overdue testament to a one-man six-million man march in memory of all those who no longer had a voice. Rated: 4/4 Nov 2, 2014 Full Review Peter Calder New Zealand Herald Much more than a hagiography, the film nevertheless cannot escape the charge of being excessively reverential. But it is nonetheless a compelling portrait of a man's important legacy to history. Rated: 3/5 Apr 25, 2008 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 7, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Through powerful imagery and videography, this film encapsulates the possibility of powerful change in light of horrific events. After watching this, it is hard to dispute that one person is enough to make a difference. It is heartbreaking to see Wiesenthal faced with hostility and opposition, but, summed up with a powerful quote from his daughter, "Any threat made my father more convinced that it was his duty to continue." For many, the war ended days and years after liberation. For Wiesenthal, the war lasted with him forever. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Had heard the name, but didn't know anything about him. Amazing that he dedicated his life to finding as many Nazis as he could, since his own life was sidetracked by the Holocaust. He and his wife lost 90 members of their families between them. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Well worth watching about the amazing life and work of an incredible man. Educational and inspiring. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Highly interesting and slickly produced. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The story of Simon Wiesenthal is fascinating - and his dogged pursuit of Nazi war criminals is literally the inspiration for great thriller novels & films. However, this film attempts to cover so much ground that it ends up skimming across the top of most of the stories. There are a few brilliant moments - almost all of which involve interviews with Simon Wiesenthal. Those aside, this is pretty standard documentary filmmaking. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This is incredibly moving painting the story of a man who almost single handedly helped insure justice was carried out amongst many of the Nazi perpetrators. It shows his undying faith and fortitude against odds and critics until the day he died at 96. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
