Solid little docu-drama.
June 6, 2004
This movie is so slow and artless that its message isn't given much power.
August 21, 2003
One of the best films on capital punishment ever.

Worthy in the best sense of the word.

Let Him Have It, which has been evocatively photographed by Oliver Stapleton, finds beauty in unexpected places.
August 26, 2002
Brilliant work from Peter Medak--one of his top three or four films

The movie's social agenda takes over; it becomes an editorial against the atrocity of capital punishment, and the personal details, the emotions, are obscured. As a result, the movie falls into two halves, and, therefore, is about half good.
January 1, 2000
The first-time screenplay, by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, is very good, and the performances are excellent all around, with kudos to Holman, Courtenay and especially Eccleston.
January 1, 2000
In his reconstruction of the trial, Medak is unforgiving, showing a legal system less concerned with justice than with proving itself correct.
January 1, 2000
Though the end result is a shocking and depressing wallop to your sensibilities, there's no doubt that Let Him Have It will stick in your memory for years to come, just as a triumph like this should.
January 1, 2000
The movie functions barely above docudrama, a mediocre TV-film effort.
