Critic Reviews for Manchester: The Night of the Bomb

All Critics (6)

That we should learn the bomber's story, one of misogyny and radicalisation, is grimly inevitable. But it's the girls who are the story, and they refuse to be victims.

Obliges viewers to fill in the gaps rather than passively absorb images of horror that they are already numb to.

May 25, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

As a film-maker, Jamie Roberts has done an extraordinary job, weaving together the testimonies of bomb victims young and old into a powerful, harrowing hour that takes the viewer closer to the heart of carnage and tragedy than any documentary I've seen.

This film's greatest achievement was in showcasing dignity.

May 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This was a devastating and intimate diary of survival or death: the lottery of terror.

May 24, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Manchester: the Night of the Bomb was riveting and emotional. Events like these need careful, unflinching documentarians, and Roberts is one.
