Critic Reviews for Iron Jawed Angels
Iron Jawed Angels relies on a disappointingly conventional script, one that delivers stock characters who have no dimensionality, and simplistic plot abbreviations that you'd find in a high school textbook.
The film celebrates freethinkers who made huge personal sacrifices to wage a critical battle for human rights, yet it does so by bowing to commercial orthodoxies and the meekest modern notions of womanhood.
Gussied up with a comically anachronistic use of period music on the soundtrack and flashy, MTV-style montage sequences, pic misguidedly strives - but ultimately fails -- to belie its instincts as an assembly-line movie-of-the-week.
It's a reminder that feminism is first of all about human rights.January 26, 2018 | Full Review…
Iron Jawed Angels is an important history lesson told in a fresh, and blazing fashion.February 17, 2004
It's good to be reminded in an election year how hard and long women fought to win the vote.
Audience Reviews for Iron Jawed Angels
Dec 29, 2012Although not-rated I would rate this "PG-13" as there is a nude butt scene, two bath scenes, and a middle finger so don't watch this with young children and only with adolescents if they are very mature and you're explaining things to them. This movie was extremely well-done, powerful, and motivational. After seeing the young activists for women's suffrage risked for my right to vote, I will never again throw away my vote thinking it doesn't count for much. I LOVED the costumes, music, and overall beautiful cinematography. The acting is superb.Dannielle A Super Reviewer
Aug 07, 2009Interesting, but its style is too muddy.Tim S Super Reviewer
Apr 26, 2009Strong, powerful story, it blew me away. I think it's a must see for everyone. I already know the answer to this question but why don't we learn about THIS in history class? I feel like I had no idea the depths of the struggles of the woman's suffrage movement until I saw this movie.Megan S Super Reviewer
Jul 31, 2008This is a really well-made film about the fight for suffrage in the U.S. with fine acting by a great cast, and nice direction to boot. The soundtrack iis anachronistic, but it works well, so I have no problem with it, even though it adds historical innacuracy. This was an HBO production, and it helps that it was too. I sadly have to admit that this film would have tanked had it been a big budget Hollywood affair. If you can track it down, watch it. This film captures important events that ALL Americans need to see and know about.Chris W Super Reviewer
