Fahrenheit 451

Critics Consensus

Fahrenheit 451 fails to burn as brightly as its classic source material, opting for slickly mundane smoke-blowing over hard-hitting topical edge.

All Critics (79) | Top Critics (30) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (53)

  • When fake news can affect real elections, there is no better time to consider the lessons of this modernized "Fahrenheit 451."

    November 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • HBO's Fahrenheit 451 is horrifically beautiful. It feels both divorced from and intrinsically tied to its source material, the 1953 dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury.

    June 28, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film isn't much of a read, though.

    May 22, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • For all its anger and barefaced rage, this Fahrenheit 451 is a ravishing experience to watch.

    May 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Where it truly falls short is in capturing the ways that literature helps us define our humanity and our individuality and life's meaning.

    May 21, 2018
  • And that's the problem with Fahrenheit 451: It works so ferociously to be relevant that it forgets to make sense.

    Timely for sure, and check that cast, but 2018's Fahrenheit 451 is a TV movie and it plays like one.
