      Justin Chang New Yorker Donald Trump’s attorneys have threatened legal action to block the release of this drama... It speaks to the useless proficiency of Ali Abbasi’s movie that the prospect of such censorship provokes more indifference than outrage. May 30, 2024 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star [Sebastian Stan] does a bang-up job capturing Trump’s verbal cadence and tics, his hand gestures and his smirk, which seemed a lot less obvious in the 1970s and ’80s than they are now. Rated: 3.5/4 May 28, 2024 Full Review Stephanie Zacharek TIME Magazine The most chilling effect of The Apprentice: the way it makes even a duplicitous manipulator and big-time hypocrite like Roy Cohn seem, at least in the end, believably sympathetic... May 24, 2024 Full Review Zhuo-Ning Su Awards Daily A sometimes funny, sometimes sobering character study that never veers into comedy/thriller territory. Jun 12, 2024 Full Review Siddhant Adlakha IGN Movies While unlikely to be revelatory to anyone watching, Ali Abbasi's The Apprentice is entertaining nonetheless as a stylistically tongue-in-cheek chronicle of Donald Trump’s life in the 1970s and ‘80s, condensed to a compact two hours. Rated: 7/10 Jun 1, 2024 Full Review Sarah Manvel In Their Own League This is not so much a biopic or a history lesson as it is a chance for Mr Strong to show the world how terrifyingly far he’s capable of going, and that’s the main reason for seeing it.
