a very powerful drama that doesn't just tug at the heartstrings, but yanks them hard
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 21, 2010
Devastating story of abuse based on real life.

February 1, 2009
Rings false, belittling instead of honoring its sensitive subject with its twinkly score, kid-glove nobility and cloying payoffs. [Blu-ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

It is to Washington's credit that he keeps it just real enough to move our hearts and our heads.

Sails the same route as dozens of Hollywood psychiatry dramas...Its power lies in the rich themes and performances.

The most remarkable thing about Antwone Fisher is the real-life story on which it is based.

Yes, Antwone Fisher is a good movie, in the way that lima beans are good food. You may leave the theater feeling fortified, but you'll have a bad taste in your mouth.

Soupy and sentimental, but with an underlying belief in itself that keeps the rhythm constant and just about manages to reach the gut.

June 26, 2003
For his directorial debut, Denzel Washington (has made) a haunting and resonant film covered with a potent Southern Gothic chill.

Has the capability of effecting change and inspiring hope.

Washington makes his directorial debut with Antwone Fisher, a fact-based biography that deftly pulls the heartstrings. Granted, it covers no new ground that other psychiatrist/patient films haven't gone before.

. . .one of the year's most insightful and evocative films.
May 3, 2003 positively heartwarming, the main character so well drawn, and the drama so involving, none of the film's imperfections seem very important.

Washington is customarily solid as the naval shrink, but directs without imagination or flair, sticking to Hollywood conventions and skimming over the harsher aspects of Fisher's life.

A mind-numbing, soul-deadeningly dull experience, it is a miracle of mediocrity, a small wonder: how can anything be quite this tedious?

When the tears start coming, they're not jerked from you -- they're honestly earned, and they're a both a relief and, yes, an affirmation.

February 10, 2003
Although Antwone Fisher is formulaic and at times predictable, it's also beautifully measured and assured, a confident, extraordinarily well-acted film about a man overcoming a dark life of murder, incest, abuse and abandonment.

A moving story of determination and the human spirit.

a noble, but largely undistinguished work, one that may very well make a lot of people feel warm and fuzzy inside, but is also quickly forgettable
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
