      Manuel L Amazing movie. I know most people skip past this title but if you do yourself the favor of pressing play. You'll be glad you did. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review Alec B Mostly boring, that said there is something interesting in the movie's inert drama. Some of the worst things America has ever done where implemented by dispassionate mid level bureaucrats so it makes sense to go after them in the same way. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Gary S This movie shows the hypocrisy of the Left. Torture to save American lives is bad but open borders for drug dealers and spuds are ok. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Shay C It's a great drama. I am vastly uncomfortable with torture scenes, so I did not like those. However, the acting was fantastic. That being said, I am unsure as to the veracity of the real-life connections. I can't separate fact from fiction, as this is all I have on the subject. Still, it's a good movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/02/23 Full Review Musical F Solid cast but insanely boring, turned it off after 15 minutes Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/09/23 Full Review Kyle C About as interesting and engaging as a news report can be! Let's be real; that's what this movie is. There's a little characterization here and there, but it's mostly just a wrapper around some news developments. It's infuriating and will make you hate politicians more than you probably already do, but in a good way. It cleverly ties in real-world news segments which help root the film. Eye-opening and powerful, The Report is worth a watch with reasonable expectations. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Sukhdev Sandhu Film Comment Magazine For a political thriller, The Report is more sad than revelatory, more melancholy than cathartic. Jones's work was not entirely in vain. His revelations of a cover-up, though heavily doctored, eventually were made public. Jan 31, 2020 Full Review David Klion The New Republic The hackneyed script has the effect of lending an unmerited nobility to the politicians and bureaucrats on-screen. Dec 13, 2019 Full Review David Stratton The Australian Driver and Bening give detailed and thoughtful performances, and the film, though necessarily on the dry side, is riveting from start to finish. Rated: 4/5 Dec 12, 2019 Full Review Andrea Thompson A Reel of One's Own “The Report” doesn't much acknowledge just how much racism played a role in what happened, but it also almost seems to seethe, in its own understated fashion, against giving ground to the argument of torture being a necessary evil. Rated: B+ Dec 19, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The Report earns our admiration by relying on details to tell the story, and our understanding of their implications does the rest. Rated: 3/4 Feb 23, 2022 Full Review Jeffrey Harris 411mania Adam Driver puts in a strong performance as Jones. However, a disjointed narrative, featuring some overly clinical and bland scenes, sometimes hampers the film. When The Report focuses more on Jones and his findings, the film finds its groove. Rated: 7/10 Feb 21, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
