Bates and Rockwell bring the film to life, but this tale of a falsely accused bombing suspect was a mess. The reporter who broke the story, played by Wilde, oozes sex and not much else. Eastwood tried to save one reputation by ruining another.

Unafraid of broad strokes, the film traffics in the kind of binary moral coloring that on the surface feels dramatically simplistic.

Richard Jewell is fantastically moving and told with a humane touch, you truly feel for Jewell and his injustices.

It's a skilfully made film, there are good, strong performances ... but there is a niggling doubt over exactly what some of Clint Eastwood's motivations for making the film are.

Eastwood's confidence in [Richard Jewell's] unambiguous heroism is no more than a starting point, a way to get to the heart of history: the affirmation of the dignity of the supposed loser. [Full review in Spanish]

An extraordinary movie. [Full Review in Spanish]

Richard Jewell is entertainingly informative as the screenplay effectively will cause you to feel sympathetic for everything Richard Jewell and his mother go through.
January 10, 2020
[Eastwood's] lack of directorial flair and the flimsiness of its finale ultimately means Richard Jewell doesn't make the impact it could and really should have made.

Paul Walter Hauser is the only reason to see this film. What we are witnessing with Hauser is the emergence of a riveting actor who dominates every scene he's in, not with force, but with sheer, unadulterated talent.

Richard Jewell is a slow burn that examines how media and governments can twist perspectives in the minds of the masses, making it a timely and relevant film.
January 6, 2020
With his freedom and mistakes of focus and touch, Eastwood has managed to develop a slow and almost calm criticism of a criminalizing system. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 6, 2020
Eastwood tells the story with his customary simplicity and sense of indignation. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 5, 2020
Heavily slanted towards conservative propaganda, but Richard Jewell is a decently crafted and entertaining movie about a man society chewed up, spit out, and promptly forgot.

Richard Jewell can barely survive the level of muck that gets raked across it.
January 4, 2020
It is a testament to the genius of the film that even in the most cliche roles we find small details of acting and direction that make them real. [Full review in Spanish]
January 4, 2020
Far from being one of Eastwood's best films, Richard Jewell, however, maintains his precision in telling a good story. [Full review in Spanish]
January 3, 2020
A stupendous film. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 3, 2020
Clint Eastwood's new film is an indictment of the fake news media, of the intellectual elite, and of a group of people he likes to call the 'p*ssy generation'.
January 2, 2020
Richard Jewell is not only well told, but it keeps the viewer in suspense... for more than two hours. [Full review in Spanish]
January 2, 2020
An enduring and multifaceted work. [Full Review in Spanish]
