All Critics (91) | Top Critics (29) | Fresh (84) | Rotten (7)

  • Bilott's story is a serious one and demands a responsible retelling. Fortunately, Haynes finds a way to do so without mistaking such a weighty task as an excuse to be plodding or bone-dry procedural.

    Dec 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a David and Goliath story with a central figure who knows what's right and keeps chipping away, bit by bit, until he gets to the truth.

    Dec 1, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • It's enough to make you want to chuck all of your non-stick and waterproofed products after seeing this movie.

    Nov 29, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Robert is every bit as determined as any underdog attorney in recent movie history.

    Nov 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Haynes also provides a sense of crushing dread-the kind of unsolvable paranoia these procedure-bound movies usually work to counter.

  • "Dark Waters" doesn't aspire to be something it's not. Like Bilott himself, it gets the job done, not by showboating, but by laying out the facts.
