Movie Reviews

  • Judi Dench and Jim Broadbent co-star in a peculiar blend of spy thriller and Ealing comedy that wobbles tonally but will keep you smiling
    3 of 5 by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph (UK) ]
  • handsome production values can't disguise shaky storytelling that relies almost entirely on composer Marc Streitenfeld's agitated orchestral score to stoke suspense; This stodgy entry is watchable enough though unlikely to stir much feeling
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Eddie Izzard delivers an excellent all-around performance; "Six Minutes to Midnight" is a suspenseful film, made that way less from its prewar setting and the violence it contains, than by one man running to stop a conspiracy and prevent a disaster
    3 of 4 by Pam Grady [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • Andy Goddard's film clumsily superimposes a frenzied, completely fictional spy adventure onto a fascinating fragment of pre-war history
    2 of 4 by Dan Rubins [Slant Magazine ]
  • Andy Goddard does a fair job here of keeping the cogs turning and the tension brewing; The spotlight falls on Eddie Izzard. He is never less than watchable, guiding a story that has enough originality to keep you rapt until the finale
    3 of 5 by James Mottram [South China Morning Post ]
  • Andy Goddard channels Hitchcock convincingly and makes every character seem a tad suspicious; But the film loses all sense of rationality in the end, relying too much on overarched eyebrows and double-crosses that border on the laughable
    2 of 4 by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News ]
  • a weird, strained, second world war spy melodrama inspired by a stranger-than-fiction true story; It’s a muddled, unrelaxed tale from Eddie Izzard, whose dramatic gears keep slipping, and which is never entirely sure where our sympathies should lie
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "Six Minutes to Midnight" is worth watching; An enthralling story is told with panache, and Judi Dench is wonderful as always. However a wildly uneven tone throws this well told tale off the rails towards the end
    3 of 5 by Alex Clement [HeyUGuys ]
