      Critics Consensus

      News of the World takes a slow but absorbing ride down a comfortingly familiar Western trail, guided by Tom Hanks in peak paternal mode.

      Linda Marric The Jewish Chronicle A beautifully crafted, no frills adventure which often feels like an homage to Westerns of yore. Rated: 4/5 Feb 20, 2021 Full Review Mark Kermode Observer (UK) I found this a rewarding and entertaining drama, heavy with the weight of the past, yet buoyed up by the possibilities of the future. Rated: 4/5 Feb 14, 2021 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) Their journey packs in all the usual thrills of the genre - the shootouts and the ravenous jaws of nature - though Greengrass doesn't approach the material with the kineticism of Captain Phillips (also starring Hanks) or the Bourne films. Rated: 3/5 Feb 12, 2021 Full Review Christopher Connor FILMHOUNDS Magazine News Of The World doesn't do anything radically different than what we might come to expect from the Western but it is a well-directed, gorgeously shot film that gets the best out of its two stars at polar opposite stages in their careers. Rated: 4/5 Jul 19, 2023 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Shows the ingredients of a country at birth, against the backdrop of a newspaper mural that reports sins that are still happening in the second decade of the twentieth century, and this gives the film a spectacular pertinency. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 11, 2022 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut News of the World, while mildly entertaining, needed a bit more grit and less preaching. Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 9, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Ken New and exciting. Loved it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/19/22 Full Review movie lover love Tom Hanks and the young girl - a little slow but good story Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/17/21 Full Review Charles The movie was OK but parts of it dragged. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/19/21 Full Review Bonnie Very touching movie. A long journey with healing for two main characters. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/21 Full Review Connie W Great story, took my granddaughter to help show where we were and where we are now as a people, not what is being portrayed in the news these days. Very human story of love, loss, racism, and those who fought it. Gave her a greater appreciation for living in the 21st century. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/12/21 Full Review Christina C We really enjoyed the interaction between Johanna and the Captain - well played! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/02/21 Full Review Read all reviews
