Cox is well suited to playing this character (Churchill ) and though he is not the first, nor maybe the best, he does well to portray the iconic and beloved man.

They have failed miserably, squandering Cox's committed performance in the process.
April 30, 2019
It is an admirable aim but unfortunately the film falls far short of its goal.

The reason to see it is Brian Cox, who gained a substantial amount of weight and leans full bore into the role. Cox roars and blusters.

These movies tend to have a tenuous basis in fact.

Watch for Brian Cox's extraordinary and powerful portrayal of Winston. Arrogant and egotistical, he arouses both exasperation and sympathy - something that could also be said for the film itself.
December 21, 2018
Unflinching in its portrayal, Churchill opts for drama ahead of accuracy but still provides interest and offers an altered insight into the legendary leader.
October 24, 2018
A fascinating look at a compressed but crucial few days in Britain's history. It's a painstakingly directed and well-acted historical biopic.
December 27, 2017
This approach has the capacity to make its subject appear a repellant and even pathetic figure, but for avoiding that fate we can largely thank Cox for a magisterial and empathetic performance that gets under the leader's skin.
December 26, 2017
Inserts as protagonist a man who resembles Prime Minister Winston Churchill in almost no ways whatsoever.
October 9, 2017
I'll leave it to real historians to separate fact from fiction, but for all its provocations -- and von Tunzelmann admits she has manipulated some events -- this is certainly a film that gets you thinking.
September 22, 2017
The story itself is desperately repetitive and ungrateful, and to overcome it we invented cinema. [Full review in Spanish]
September 19, 2017
Sadly, "underwhelming" is the only word to describe the movie...
September 8, 2017
It offers a lot for an actor willing the seize the bit and gnaw on it, as Cox is more than capable of.
September 5, 2017
We're entertained and kept interested in one of the biggest and most important events in modern history.
September 4, 2017
Ambitious and veined with noble wood, but boring and disappointing. [Full review in Spanish]
August 29, 2017
As it stands, director Jonathan Teplitzky has made a minor entry into the cinematic literature of the war. It's a bit like having only one chapter of what should have been a multi-volume endeavor.
August 28, 2017
Churchill is not just history but also a work of art.
August 5, 2017
"Churchill" is to its subject what the "The Green Berets" was to the Vietnam War. "Berets" attempted to make a World War Two heroic propaganda in the wrong war.
July 30, 2017
Given its very narrow focus, there are scenes that feel repetitive as we continually watch Churchill argue with others and look deep within himself.
