      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      While finely performed and often fascinating, The Loudest Voice's shallow interpretations undermine what could be a powerful indictment of one of media's most infamous figures.

      Scott Bryan BBC.com The failure of this is that it focuses too much on Roger Ailes ... and you don't see the impact of Fox News on discourse and society. Jul 15, 2020 Full Review Eric Deggans NPR The result is a primer on one of TV's most influential creators and an excellent showcase for star Russell Crowe that will still leave viewers wanting something more. Nov 23, 2019 Full Review Camilla Long Times (UK) It's clear the producers despise Ailes and Fox News, but couldn't they have made the script more lacerating or the plot more telling or the characters sharper, rather than making everyone physically disgusting and covering them in liver spots? Sep 16, 2019 Full Review Jim Schembri 3AW Be sure to check out the outstanding work put in by Russell Crowe as Fox News guru Roger Ailes in this fact-based ripper. The show covers the same ground as the hit film Bombshell, but in much more detail and subtlety. Rated: 4/5 Jun 9, 2020 Full Review Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media Dramatic Fox CEO biopic has strong sexual themes, cursing. Rated: 3/5 Feb 14, 2020 Full Review María Alba Espinof The Loudest Voice ensnares you and takes you on a frightening, but entertaining ride.
