All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (1)

  • McCain's frank discussions about his limited time left here on Earth and the end of a mission of "serving something more important than myself" are profound and moving.

  • An insightful, poignant, journalistically sound profile that gives McCain his due, but steers clear of hagiography.

    May 30, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's an altogether new form of tribute: Having one's last word while being able to hear the things everyone will say when you're really gone.

  • The respect and admiration for the cancer-afflicted POW turned Arizona senator is non-partisan and clearly more than pro forma during this 1 hour, 45 minute film.

    May 29, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • It's certainly an inspirational portrait; it's also a blatant exercise in legacy management... Still, For Whom is entirely convincing, even moving, in its intimation that McCain's passing will mark the alarming disappearance of the GOP's old guard.

  • First and foremost, this documentary is as a moving farewell to a flawed, but still admirable, man. But it also comes across as another type of good-bye, one to the basic civility Americans once were able to take for granted in the political realm.

  • Shy of two hours,John McCain: For Whom The Bells Toll is a documentary worthy of celebrating a statesman and military hero.

  • If McCain might have been a poor president, though, he is surely a great man and a great character
