Movie Reviews

  • strong performances and a strange-but-true story keep this Civil Rights drama from succumbing to formula
    2.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • Robin Bissell has crafted an effective mainstream entertainment, topped with a pleasing dollop of righteousness. But subtlety is not in his repertoire; and Taraji P. Henson's performance is so broad it verges on farcical
    2.5 of 4 by Mark Jenkins [Washington Post ]
  • along the way, "The Best of Enemies" is a pleasure to watch, thanks not only to Henson and Rockwell, but also to the meticulous recreation of the era
    by Mick LaSalle [San Fransisco Chronicle ]
  • "The Best of Enemies", while not nearly as good as "Green Book", is a rock-solid movie: squarely deliberate, a little long and predictable, but honest and thoughtful enough, precise in its period and locale, with very strong performances
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • "The Best of Enemies" is another formulaic biopic about race, but it recognizes that white allyship is only really valuable when it's hard
    Review rate : B- by David Ehrlich [Indiewire ]
