Six Minutes to Midnight

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Six Minutes to Midnight has a fascinating fact-based WWII-era story to tell, but largely loses it in muddled spy shenanigans.

David Stratton The Australian The phoniness of the entire production is emphasised by the fact that it was filmed not in Sussex but in Wales. Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 23, 2021 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald Director Andy Goddard (Downton Abbey) has made something determinedly old-fashioned out of all this while Izzard's attitude to the role could be summed up as: when in doubt, do nothing. Rated: 3/5 Apr 22, 2021 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com It's unfair of me to put it this way, but had I viewed Six Minutes to Midnight on PBS, I'd probably have felt it was just fine. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 14, 2021 Full Review Nadine Whitney Mr. Movie's Film Blog Six Minutes to Midnight had the opportunity to be a small but tight espionage thriller but sadly squanders the potential by veering into cliché and having almost zero dramatic tension. Sep 17, 2023 Full Review Cris Kennedy The Canberra Times (Australia) I do love a good war-time thriller and I enjoyed Six Minutes to Midnight, even if the stakes in the end were somewhat lower than the premise sets up. Rated: 3/5 Aug 3, 2022 Full Review Victoria Luxford City AM A small, plucky film that makes you nostalgic for old fashioned spy adventures, even if it doesnt quite reach the heights of those influences. Its an interesting platform for Izzard as a star, and a promising beginning for her future as a screenwriter. Rated: 3/5 Mar 2, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
