It's a tough movie but also rewarding and inspiring: something of a quiet triumph.

Eastwood, who has made fine movies in recent years, has got hold of a humdinger of a story. But he's too detached and lazy here.

Clint Eastwood's Changeling falls into a common trap: by trying to do too much, it accomplishes too little.

This is one movie where the star really is the star. And delivers a performance of which any actress can be truly proud.

If Changeling lacks the knockout power of, say, Million Dollar Baby, it proves that Eastwood continues to seek out stories that take him places he hasn't been before -- and the audience along with him.
October 31, 2008
It is a misfire, a silly and borderline absurd story that cannot excuse its twists and turns with the simple 'a true story' declaration that opens the film.
October 30, 2008
How could a story as genuinely bizarre as this one seem so generic and rambling on the screen?
October 30, 2008
With its many tonal shifts and dangling subplots, J. Michael Straczynski's sprawling script is a problem. Jolie's performance is another.
October 30, 2008
If the film is too long and a little unwieldy in its later acts, the consummate craftsman in Eastwood glosses over that with detail and righteous rage.
October 30, 2008
Changeling is a fine-enough movie. It's just that it's aware of the fact, and neither Eastwood nor Jolie ever lets the audience forget it.
