March 18, 2019
On the Basis of Sex doesn't do Ruth Bader Ginsburg's reputation any harm, but that's only because the film doesn't really do anything with her at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 65/100
March 12, 2019
Instead, On The Basis Of Sex is a formulaic biopic which is clearly endorsed because the real Ruth Bader Ginsberg turns up a the end.

An item of agenda and news but with the successful interpretations of Jones and Hammer, in film with a message according to the times. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

It's an inspirational story that needs to be seen, but On the Basis of Sex doesn't impress half as much as Ruth Bader Ginsburg does
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

When the film concentrates on the case with which Ginsburg achieved success, it acquires greater nuances and exploits its best facets. [Full Review in Spanish]

Nevertheless, something about [the film's didacticism] works. [Full review in Spanish]
March 5, 2019
It is a film "for the fans" and for the new generations to approach a living myth, a fascinating personality, a woman who made (and does) history. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Despite this cinematic battle royale between sneering prejudice and righteous fury, Felicity Jones navigates the way with her dignity intact.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 28, 2019
Taking its cue from Ruth, On the Basis of Sex includes everyone in the equation. Mothers - and fathers! - should take their brainy kids to see it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 26, 2019
On the Basis of Sex has buckets of appeal but when it comes to underselling the great RBG's legacy, the movie is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 25, 2019
The miscasting of Jones actually ends up working in her favour: if you find yourself dismissing her as too pretty or too lightweight for the role, then her victory at the end is all the sweeter.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It's solid and good, it's just not excellent.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 24, 2019
This is a powerful, eye-opening story that reminds us about the inroads that have been made when it comes to gender equality in recent decades.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
February 23, 2019
On the Basis of Sex is well-intentioned, cheesily enjoyable and a little uninspired.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 23, 2019
It's not an entirely terrible film. It's just not the film that RBG deserves.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 22, 2019
It's the right film for now.
February 22, 2019
It's forgivable - the directing and performances are accomplished, and the inspiring story is well-told. It just feels very familiar and rote for the story of a woman fighting to unmake tired rules.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 22, 2019
The film tells Ginsburg's story well, but Leder is only able to transmit and not transcend. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 22, 2019
It's a decent, well-acted drama, if a little blandly dull in its approach.
February 22, 2019
A bit of a cliched stomp, but entertaining enough and if it makes more people talk about RBG's achievements and seek out more - then great.
