What are we to learn from this? Not the broad lesson that every line of work has its share of charlatans: The script is way too pious to swallow such a generic pill. And not anything important about Glass, since there's no real character examination.

Fortunately, Christensen is surrounded by solid actors who manage to keep the film gripping despite his limp lead performance.

The movie shows a timely aptitude for invoking a vital figure of fear that lives near the forefront of our collective consciousness.

Austin Chronicle

Shattered Glass provides a fascinating look behind the scenes at The New Republic ... Yet, viewers may also recoil from the movie's reverential and elitist treatment of The New Republic and other news operations.

A thoroughly fascinating examination of a shameful footnote in journalistic history that many people probably wish to forget.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

One of the more effective recent feature films about the newsgathering process, even if it doesn't quite meet the standard set in 1976 by All the President's Men.

Shattered Glass has the skill and power to make you squirm.

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

Shattered Glass joins the ranks of first-rate media films, with an authenticity and sense of drama that makes it among the most effective of the genre since All the President's Men.

Robert W. Butler
Kansas City Star

A terrific white-knuckler, one that builds up a head of excruciating suspense even though most viewers already know how it ends.

Shattered Glass certainly stirred something up that needed cooking, but it never made it tasty enough to swallow whole.

Ray succeeds in making the newsroom feel as exciting and as dangerous as a battlefield.

Billy Ray ... has crafted an entertaining film, filled it with understated performances, and delivered a small pearl.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Like all man-bites-dog stories, Shattered Glass is inherently fascinating because it, and Steven Glass, are the exception to a widely accepted rule.

Shattered Glass speaks simultaneously to our humanity and sense of moral outrage.

Arizona Daily Star

Incomplete. The movie doesn't play the story out all the way to its true ending, with Glass signing a fat book deal to write a novel based on his own life

Through Christensen's economical soft-shoe performance, Glass's zeal and obliging modesty work the same disarming hoodoo on the viewer as they do on his snake-oiled co-workers

The surprise of Shattered Glass is that it's ultimately a celebration of journalistic integrity.
