  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Paul Walter Hauser, so impressive in an amusing supporting role in “I, Tonya,” ably shoulders the lead as the oddball mama’s boy, bullied for his weight, who dreams of a job in law enforcement
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Cluelessly simplistic rendering of a 1990s media injustice ignores all the context in which it happened and demonizes the one journalist who acted professionally. Fails even as a conservative screed.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Hopefully, you already knew Richard Jewell was innocent even though the 24-hour news cycle and the FBI told you he wasn’t. Now, you also must judge if Eastwood’s version tells you the whole truth.
  • Mike McGranaghan @
    • Excerpt: Clint Eastwood has made the most iconoclastic film of the year.
  • Jared Mobarak @
    • Excerpt: So while I did enjoy the whole thanks to Hauser’s affecting performance, I refuse to blindly ignore its blatant hypocrisy in the name of so-called “justice.”
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Richard Jewell is the sort of film that fits right into Eastwood’s wheelhouse.
  • Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom
    • Excerpt: Richard Jewell becomes a propaganda film in which a complex tale is reduced to arch menace versus downhome simplicity.
