The Ides of March Reviews

John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

A brilliant political thriller about strategy, loyalty and idealism that is willing to unmask candidates who build their campaigns on slogans, not policies.

Will Leitch

Well-produced and well-acted middlebrow entertainment, a political "expose" that will shock only pearl-clutchers and naive dopes.

Lyles' Movie Files

A gripping, political thriller packed with tremendous performances and supremely confident direction by George Clooney.

George Clooney officially passes the impish matinee idol torch to Ryan Gosling in this smart, hella-cool (does Clooney waste his time on any other kind of movie these days?) political drama.

George Clooney's latest civics lesson as actor and director, is a down and dirty politics-behind-closed-doors tale...brilliantly acted

Jeff Beck

If the film had been able to get off the ground earlier, this probably would have been a great film. However, with its excellent performances, well-written screenplay, and engaging story, it's still a very good film.

The entire first two thirds of the film have the calm idiosyncratic qualities of a mellowed-out Mamet.

Like Clooney's straightforward and unflashy directorial style, The Ides of March proves to be an effective drama.

"The Ides of March" is a solid film, but it could have been better if it challenged the audience more than it does.

It's clear the Ides of March is about the nuts and bolts of politics.

... A political thriller that concerns itself more with issues of loyalty and trust than advancing a particular agenda.

It's politics. How many times do we say that in our work lives or in reference to an organization with which we are involved?

Yet another fantastic performance from Ryan Gosling, in what has turned out to be his breakout year that elevates him to the top rank of actors.

The twists and shocks of this story are delivered with emotional precision, each one landing like a heavy punch to the stomach, making every minute crackle with intensity.

I left the theater feeling I had gotten exactly what I'd expected, but wishing I'd seen a crazier movie, one where those twin Iagos, Giamatti and Seymour Hoffman, had done more than worry in the wings.

ABC Radio (Australia)

I'm so convinced that Clooney will eventually make his Huge, Important Film About American Politics that it's odd to me he's made this one: his small, entertaining film about American politics.

The Vine

As a portrait of power, hubris and the systematic corruption of integrity, The Ides of March makes for compelling viewing. It's well-crafted, wonderfully scored and solidly acted across the board.
