Common Sense Media

Provocative look at Hitler's last days is extremely violent.

David Keyes unflinching, hard, relentlessly honest movie that refuses to ask questions that have easy answers. It is also brilliantly acted, written and focused...

"Downfall" isn't about commuting history's sentence for the Nazis, but heeding its warning - a gruesome, sustained-tension lesson about informed politics and whether those who left evil to its own devices could arrive at a place of complicit guilt.

It's reach exceeds its grasp; nonetheless, a compelling study of Hitler's last days.

As the first German-made film about Hitler's ruination since G.W. Pabst's "Der Letzte Akt" ("The Last Act" - 1956) "Downfall" is a stunning cinematic achievement that illuminates minutiae about the last 10 days of the nefarious German leader who won the h

Film Journal International

Features a staggeringly creepy performance by Bruno Ganz, whose Hitler is both a raving psychotic and a beaten, melancholic man.

Downfall is an admirably matter-of-fact history lesson of a movie, but next to real footage of real people with real memories of those days, it pales by comparison.

An important historical movie about the last days of the Third Reich.

Es un atinado recordatorio de que, como humanidad, debimos haber aprendido la lección, pues de otra forma estamos condenados a repetir la historia, para bien o para mal.

The subject matter itself is the fallback support, which is good enough for its purposes, though it could've benefited from a more steered momentum.

There have been plenty of World War II films over the years, but none delivers as intimate a portrait of German dictator Adolf Hitler and his comrades.

...succeeds, for the most part, in painstakingly depicting who did what when, but beyond that, it is a missed opportunity.

A lot of movies have been made about Adolf Hitler, but this is certainly one of the best; it shows the psychology that goes on when a leader and his followers fall from power.

The film's searing portrayal of an utterly pathetic fanaticism is its most enduring effect.

Downfall, along with the well-done additional [DVD] special features, is a must-see film for anyone who considers themselves a history buff, a film junkie or both.

Cinematic Reflections

Downfall takes on the unenviable task of portraying [Hitler] as a man, rather than a caricature or parody as the norm has dictated.
