The film operates well as a thriller and probably goes further than intended in extracting sympathy for its reprehensible protagonist.

... the thrilleresque aspects ... are most pleasing.

"The Statement is that rare, unassuming movie that has much to say and is so daring in its message that it is a wonder it has seen the light of day"

Em função de sua própria premissa, apresenta questões éticas interessantes.

Confused at its core and too befuddled to make that a virtue.

Dan Lybarger
Kansas City Star

For the most part, though, there really isn't enough suspense or drama to make The Statement more than an occasionally chilling civics lesson.

A listless melodrama that smothers its own potential.

Caine bounces back and forth almost randomly between pitiable and detestable, following the dictates of a formulaic plot.

Kevin John Bozelka
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

All Jewison has to offer us is an exquisitely packaged reminder of the Catholic Church's collaboration with the Vichy government. But why distort history when your sole purpose is to offer a history lesson?

It's a shame that a film with this much potential could be turned into such a dull, pedestrian affair.

Little more than a rote pursuit thriller.

This is a creaky, obsolete sort of film, not an instant classic, but an instant antique.

Seems more an excuse to attack a target than an exercise in solid storytelling.

The film is rather unbelievable, even though it's based on real-life tales of the Vichy Milice.

This Ludlum-esque political thriller... might be funny if it wasn't exploiting such a serious topic as the Holocaust.

'Rome,' 'Paris,' 'Provence,' 'London' -- labels like these pop up so often in The Statement you're not sure if you're watching a movie or reading a map. But a map would be more compelling.

The Statement elicits more yawns than gasps and plays like a second-rate rerun from Sunday afternoon television.

not all roses, but it's a decent, well-made thriller of the sort that we don't get much anymore... It's tempting to say that we're getting Caine's best work only now.
