The China Syndrome Reviews

March 27, 2009
A tightly assembled didactic thriller.
March 26, 2009
A moderately compelling thriller about the potential perils of nuclear energy, whose major fault is an overweening sense of its own self-importance.
June 24, 2006
All a bit too earnest, despite the seriousness of the subject, with Fonda setting her jaw and stepping into father's footsteps as Tinseltown's very own protector of humanity; but it's tightly scripted and directed, and genuinely tense in places.
October 23, 2004
A terrific thriller that incidentally raises the most unsettling questions about how safe nuclear power plants really are.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
May 20, 2003
The three stars are splendid, but maybe Miss Fonda is just a bit more than that. Her performance is not that of an actress in a star's role, but that of an actress creating a character that happens to be major within the film.
