Critic Reviews for Made in Dagenham
Made in Dagenham gamely depicts an interesting bit of history, but its real message is a matter of principle.
A spirited look -- well written, beautifully acted, full of uplift -- at lovably cheeky heroines on the march for a little respect.
Unfortunately, the story is just so predictable that there's little dramatic tension to speak of.
A cheeky and uplifting "inspired-by-a-true-story" that overcomes its predictability with sparkling performances, a dash of wit and a lot of heart
Audience Reviews for Made in Dagenham
An inspirational story for women's rights and good on them, however this movie is just boring. Bob Hoskins is brilliant and the cast is brilliant but not my sort of movie!
An entertaining, but curiously, slightly frustratingly middle class image of working class struggle.
Solid cast - Sally Hawkins and Bob Hoskins - but this film's beginning is brutally boring, and in all it's too didactic, moving slowly and belabouring most plot points. The subject matter is important, and it's not without it's moments, but the dialogue is clunky and poorly written, veering dangerously close to Movie of the Week territory by times.
