Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer Reviews

August 19, 2019
It's a slasher film about a bogeyman of a different, more disturbing sort.
February 28, 2019
Triumphs as a rather good melding of true-crime story and courtroom drama, with a chilling and direct message sure to trigger many and shock many more.

The film may be preaching to the people who already believe that abortion is the taking of the most innocent of human lives, but perhaps it will inform and change some hearts.

Seriously lacking in local authenticity, while also propagating multiple false myths that came out of the Kermit Gosnell saga (Philadelphia Weekly)

[The filmmakers] had an axe to grind. So they spend time tying themselves into knots justifying that perspective with an amateurish movie than trying to tell the story well and honestly.

An amazing film about the arrest and trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell who performed abortions under the most dire and unsanitary conditions. Whether Pro-Life or Pro-Choice this movie should be seen.

The events in Searcy's film demand to be taken seriously. The way he portrays them, sometimes, cannot.

Tells a story worth telling, and does so reasonably well, but while it avoids actual preaching, it's still addressed to the choir. That doesn't make it a bad film, but it could have been a better one.
October 17, 2018
Properly ghoulish fact-based anti-abortion snooze-fest/sermon that preaches only to the choir.
October 13, 2018
If you're not an avid right-wing media consumer, however, there's very little here to make this average effort extra-special.
October 12, 2018
The film never loses sight of the choir to which it is plainly preaching.
October 11, 2018
Well-acted and compelling. Even without going full-on graphic, the film achieves real power.

Perhaps we should be glad that mainstream Hollywood, just like the mainstream media, had no interest in this story. It's almost impossible to believe they would have told it so well.
October 9, 2018
Gosnell delivers one of the most chilling portraits of evil we've seen in ages.
October 5, 2018
An effective true crime story that occasionally loses its way, but is able to get back on course enough to have an impact on the audience.
