Frost / Nixon | Ratings & Reviews

"Frost/Nixon exceeded my modest expectations. I had anticipated one of those 60’s/70’s period dramas, which are all period, no drama. You know the ones – they’ve got the faux-jazz soundtracks, the ‘groovy’ camera angles and the lukewarm humour. But this is something better."

Flicks, Andrew HedleyFlicks

"Frank Langella's meticulous performance will generate the sort of attention that will attract serious filmgoers."

VarietyVariety

"Stories of lost crowns lend themselves to drama, but not necessarily audience-pleasing entertainments, which may explain why Frost/Nixon registers as such a soothing, agreeably amusing experience, more palliative than purgative."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Morgan finds the right elements of action and character through which to make history leap off the page."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"Director Ron Howard has turned Peter Morgan's stage success into a grabber of a movie laced with tension, stinging wit and potent human drama."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"A totally mesmerizing battle of the wills between the occasionally charming yet wily Nixon and the increasingly desperate Frost."

Premiere MagazinePremiere Magazine

"Interesting but bloodless adaptation of a hit play."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"The result is involving, engrossing cinema -- more thrilling, in fact, than Howard's "The Da Vinci Code" -- filmmaking of a type rarely seen anymore and sorely missed."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Fails to add anything of substance to the history that it portrays."

Film ThreatFilm Threat

"A well-paced, lovingly crafted, superbly acted drama that deserves plenty of recognition at the upcoming awards season."
