Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: A movie that captures the frustration of not knowing, the unconsummated urge to comprehend.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, June 22, 2007
Rotten: The only drama comes in the waiting, which eventually becomes tiresome.
- Bill Muller, Arizona Republic, Saturday, June 23, 2007
First, I have to say that I had no interest in this film, but someone bought me the DVD and, at last, I decided to give it a go. Even though this story is loyally based on true events, I constantly had the impression A Mighty Heart brought nothing new to the screen. Most of the film is an awful mess, with a clumsy direction and a very normal screenplay. Angelina Jolie handled well her French accent, but her performance was not that exceptional. The emotional aspect of the movie is not enough exploited and when it is, I just wanted to shut off the TV. Really, I didn't like this movie and I knew I wouldn't. I know it's an important movie and we all should watch it. I'm glad I finally did, but it still didn't impress me a bit.

What a touching story and Angelina does a great job portraying Mariane Pearl.
