Critic Reviews for Cold Case Hammarskjöld

All Critics (69) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (57) | Rotten (12)

  • In his own way, the ever-present director is as much a scene-hogger as Joaquin Phoenix with one glaring difference: Brügger's mercenaries are the real-deal, not heavy-handed, makeup-streaked clowns with mommy and daddy issues.

    January 29, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It is impossible in this paranoid-making era to watch Cold Case and not be made to feel uneasy by the secrets it unlocks and the human aptitude for evil that it exposes.

    September 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's impossible to emerge from this film without being shaken to your core. Mission accomplished: Mind blown.

    August 21, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • One thing is certain: If he's right about this one, he will have earned that pith helmet.

    August 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A tremendously absorbing film, a documentary that plays like a first-rate thriller hinging on key issues of the Cold War and African decolonization.

    August 16, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The trip is entertaining and even instructive-not about the facts of the case, which go from murky to opaque, but about the slip-slidingly elusive nature of truth.

Audience Reviews for Cold Case Hammarskjöld

  • Nov 23, 2019
    Mads Brügger is like a poor man's Werner Herzog. He even admits as much at one point in the documentary. That being said, he still somehow stumbles into a deeply troubling conspiracy with horrific and far reaching implications.
