Critic Reviews for Harriet

All Critics (230) | Top Critics (54) | Fresh (168) | Rotten (62)

  • [Harriet] takes historical reality and stretches it over the canvas of an old-fashioned adventure story.

    December 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It has a central performance that carries the drama shoulder-high. It's gripping, and there's a mystical element to it...

    November 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately, though, Harriet is impressive, especially given the budget ($17 million).

    November 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • So often, historical films are stale and mired in misery, but Harriet has a rare buoyancy.

    November 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a rousing piece of film-making from Lemmons.

    November 21, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The whole package is so sleekly watchable, if risk-averse to a fault, that I can't recall a recent time at the cinema where I learned more by thinking less.

Audience Reviews for Harriet

  • Jan 30, 2020
    Erivo's great (obviously) and the movie is better than just some run of the mill biopic, even though it certainly has elements of one. Kasi Lemmons sees Tubman as a force of nature and the best scenes lean in to that perspective.
