Critic Consensus: Churchill gets sterling work out of Brian Cox in the leading role, but it isn't enough to overcome a muddled and ultimately unsuccessful approach to an incredible real-life story.

Critic Reviews for Churchill
Likely to do well with its intended audience of WWII buffs and those old enough to remember the man first time round.
The script, written by neophyte Alex von Tunzelmann, is appalling, its plot simplistic and its dialogue alternating between misplaced bits of contemporary psycho-babble and improbable grandiloquence.
Cox makes an impressive Churchill, an imposing man of physique and intellect who, closing in on 70, has been laid low by age and circumstance.
Too often Churchill feels more like an exposé than a deep-dish psychological exploration. Still, there are moments in Cox's performance when we can locate the living, breathing man inside the commemorative statue, and that's not nothing.
