Lions for Lambs reminds us of what Hollywood does best, when it wants to.

It doesn't take a genius to know who is going to be sacrificed in this weak morality tale.

Redford is to be commended for making a film that dares to navigate the "theater of ideas," despite its flaws.

It means to use the Cruise-Redford-Streep star power to get us talking about things we ought to be talking about.
November 17, 2007
Carnahan and Redford show that politicians bank on public apathy, and the film ends up as a call to action for people to simply become more engaged.

It's an unironic work that demands the audience's attention and should provoke a personal, even physical, response from each individual.

Gushing about Streep is almost embarrassing, but...

November 17, 2007
Screenwriter Matthew Michael Carnahan as a way with dialogue; the verbal confrontations between Malley and Todd and Janine and Irving are choice, and all actors are in top form.

Arian and Ernie are the young men of color who are acting out the plot the white folks are talking about.
November 12, 2007
Tom Cruise does a creepy politician with an evil eye on the White House. Look out, Giuliani!
November 12, 2007
It's definitely flawed but I am recommending it.
November 10, 2007
Score one for Robert Redford.

Has worth because its subject matter has worth.

The producers of Lions for Lambs are missing a tremendous marketing opportunity here. They should spell each L word with a Z instead of an L, and use the number 4 in between them. Lionz4lambz would be gangsta to the youth market.

This is an unapologetically liberal film. Does it preach to the choir? Absolutely. My own left-leaning views being what they are, I liked it on those terms, even as I acknowledge that some complexity would have been nice.

Agree or disagree, love it or hate it, you won't be able to turn away. It's Robert Redford's urgent, impassioned wake up call for America.

Not surprisingly, the Redford segment is the best. His character, who hopes to save America one slacker at a time, rings true; and his real-life conviction and his fears for democracy come through.

November 9, 2007
It's a fictional tale that has the immediacy of something hot off the presses -- something raw and clunky, but plugged into the moment - with characters talking about the same things people are talking about outside the theater.

Lions for Lambs is insightful and provocative.

In the best directing of his auteur career, Redford turns Carnahan's original script into a modern-day version of what Sergei Eisenstein called 'Intellectual Montage.'
