It's made with the flaggelatory ardour that Ken Loach brings to all his films, a hard edged realism pounded into the mortar of cinema with naturalism
June 24, 2006
There's plenty of evidence of Loach's undiminished power as a film-maker, and equally ample evidence that something is very rotten in the state of Northern Ireland.

Made in 1990, it feels and looks like it's from 1980. Frances McDormand is an especially snoozy disappointment in a woefully miscast role.
| Original Score: 3/5

Gripping stuff, even if the outbreak of peace in Northern Ireland has somewhat blunted the message.

This quietly explosive film comes to resonate more loudly than melodrama.

Hidden Agenda could be accused of being dogmatic (Loach's films frequently slam the U.K. government), but the director keeps a sense of gritty authenticity throughout.
| Original Score: 4/5

Simplistic and unconvincing, but with some power
| Original Score: 3/5

It's good for a watch but far from a perfect film.

Its own terms and for much of the way, this is a superior thriller.

Ken Loach's Hidden Agenda must be the most buttoned-down movie about a conspiracy theory ever made.
January 1, 2000
The film is a bit slow and at times slightly strained, and there are moments when you'll be hard-pressed to understand all the dialogue -- but on the whole it is effective and chilling.

Well-intentioned, but rather murky.

March 26, 2009
Though it attempts to make an acceptable theatrical entertainment out of a complex political saga, Hidden Agenda lacks bigscreen impact.
