Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    As much as these wonderful actors invest their performances with psychological nuance, their efforts go mostly for naught in a movie that gives character development a distant back...

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Films can't just sound good on paper; they have to be effective on the screen, and in that form, The Statement is disappointing.

  • 50

    Variety Scott Foundas

    Lackluster pic fails both as suspense and as character study.
