Critic Reviews for Mr. Jones

All Critics (99) | Top Critics (21) | Fresh (84) | Rotten (15)

  • Though it's a shame that "Mr. Jones" is not more cohesive, the remarkable story of Gareth Jones retains its potency.

    June 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A disordered script cobbles this stirring indictment of Stalin's evil from director Agnieszka Holland. There are flashes of epic filmmaking, but the great movie that might have been remains frustratingly out of reach.

    June 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A compelling watch throughout in spite of its rambling feel.

    June 19, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [A] bleak, murky, and instructive film...

    June 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There are moments in the blistering cold when Jones's quest for truth looks like it will end. This is where Holland and the script turn the drama up so high that you're riveted to his plight, lost in his agony, shivering in the frosty climate.

    June 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • At times, Mr. Jones has the gravity and grace to remind us of what an accomplished chronicler of 20th-century horror Agnieszka Holland can be. And at times, it goes off track in ways that sadly undercut both the gravity and the grace.
