Being a film about fibs, it is desperate not to tell any. Big mistake.
November 1, 2007
Writer-director Ray has a no-fuss style that is quietly, thoroughly gripping.
May 13, 2004
Lacks the journalistic killer instinct that could have elevated it above the well-executed but slightly sanctimonious, made-for-TV feel

Does a superb job in presenting four of the five journalistic 'Ws' of its story: the who, what, where and when. It fails, however, on the essential 'why' of the tale.
November 28, 2003
What are we to learn from this? Not the broad lesson that every line of work has its share of charlatans: The script is way too pious to swallow such a generic pill. And not anything important about Glass, since there's no real character examination.

A sober, wry and often riveting account of an infamous moment in journalism.

As directed by Billy Ray, the film has an exceptionally tight focus and a fascinating story to tell.

Reminds you how our culture's emphasis on success and stardom in any field -- and the betrayal of ethics to attain them -- has a cumulative, corrosive effect on society, no matter how small the stage may be.

Smart about good vs. evil.

Excels at the kind of straight-ahead storytelling that's both involving and satisfying.
November 14, 2003
A good movie about a real-life problem journalist that unfortunately has almost nothing to do with journalism's real-life problems.
November 14, 2003
Not only an honest depiction of one journalist's rampant dishonesty but a compelling movie by just about any standard.
November 13, 2003
It's funny and gripping, a story about people that also happens to be about journalistic principle.
November 13, 2003
It's a thoughtful, well-paced look at one pathetic kid's lies, and our equally pathetic willingness to accept them as truth.
November 13, 2003
A study in moviemaking that doesn't resonate beyond its subject matter.
November 13, 2003
Here's a verdict that Shattered Glass makes abundantly clear: Hayden Christensen can act.
November 13, 2003
Although this is a journalism movie, it carries the wide appeal of a modern-day morality play.
November 13, 2003
It takes craft, insight and expert delivery to make an 'insider' story interesting to those on the outside. And that's exactly what Shattered Glass does.
