Movie Reviews

  • the star [Benedict Cumberbatch] turns in his most convincing performance for years in this sturdy story of accidental spy Greville Wynne; it's a satisfying enough watch, best viewed with little investment and low expectations
    3 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • thankfully, Dominic Cooke's "Ironbark" is blessed with fantastic turns from Benedict Cumberbatch, Jessie Buckley and Rachel Brosnahan to up the stakes and make it all feel a bit fresher than it actually is
    Review rate : B by Gregory Ellwood [The Playlist ]
  • a likable but slow-building espionage tale; A solid spy drama about ordinary people caught up in Cold War espionage, Dominic Cooke's Ironbark is as meat-and-potatoes as its real-life hero
    by John DeFore [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a decorous, solidly smart thriller whose menace maintains at a sort of low, steady hum. What elevates its otherwise familiar arc is a sharp script (by Tom O'Connor), and the remarkable commitment of its two central performances
    Review rate : B+ by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • a confident, entertaining, and well-upholstered historical spy thriller about a regular guy who stumbles his way toward saving the world, it's the perfect movie for anyone who watched "Bridge of Spies"
    Review rate : C+ by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • "Ironbark" tells a real-life spy story admirably; Benedict Cumberbatch and Merab Ninidze do their damnedest to keep things engaging; Ultimately, Dominic Cooke and company do a satisfactory job of telling an incredible story
    4 of 5 by Dan Mecca [The Film Stage ]
  • "Ironbark" is another chapter in the untold stories of the Cold War that can finally come to light; Benedict Cumberbatch proves yet again he's a star and Merab Ninidze is equally brilliant at his Russian counterpart
    3.5 of 5 by Alan Ng [Film Threat ]
