Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times

    A cinematic canonization that presents the 40th president as the 20th century's godsend.

  • 40

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Archival material -- especially rare B&W Soviet footage -- is a knockout, though the assembly of talking heads, nearly all Reagan loyalists, is predictable and uninspired.

    Washington Post Desson Thomson

    This is for the pre-converted, certainly not the left, or even those who consider themselves detached observers.
