What we're left with is a straightforward sob story; a haunting, matter-of-fact depiction of cruel injustice that couldn't fail to touch a nerve in any context.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 17, 2011
Jolie is alternately distraught and outraged (in good ways) but Eastwood's film is an odd mix of genres that never quite settles into the one we want to watch.

The film ... becomes more of an examination of ... the misogynistic contrivances movie heroines have consistently been put through for audience entertainment.

The story's impact is reduced by the filmmakers' decision to make everyone who is part of 'the system' not just complicit in the conspiracy, but also lacking humanity.

There are moments when it seems as if it wants to be an inspirational story about a person who refuses to be beaten by a corrupt system -- but it doesn't, in the end, settle for the uplifting narrative.

Changeling will engage both your fears and compassion, I have no doubt. And it will stay with you long after vou have left the cinema.

This is an Oscar-calibre performance from Angelina Jolie. She conveys a sense of grief, desperation, fear, sadness and determination that is absolutely palpable.

Eastwood is a director made for melodrama and this one proves a lot juicier than Gran Torino, with its dry, dogged sense of righteousness.

Clint Eastwood is a vital force of nature. Born May 31, 1930, the unflappable 78-year old director is still creating powerful, unique movies. Changeling is remarkable evidence of that.
