Jewison is not sure if he wants to make a chase or message film.

The film operates well as a thriller and probably goes further than intended in extracting sympathy for its reprehensible protagonist.

"The Statement is that rare, unassuming movie that has much to say and is so daring in its message that it is a wonder it has seen the light of day"

Confused at its core and too befuddled to make that a virtue.

For the most part, though, there really isn't enough suspense or drama to make The Statement more than an occasionally chilling civics lesson.

A listless melodrama that smothers its own potential.

Caine bounces back and forth almost randomly between pitiable and detestable, following the dictates of a formulaic plot.

All Jewison has to offer us is an exquisitely packaged reminder of the Catholic Church's collaboration with the Vichy government. But why distort history when your sole purpose is to offer a history lesson?

It's a shame that a film with this much potential could be turned into such a dull, pedestrian affair.

Little more than a rote pursuit thriller.

This is a creaky, obsolete sort of film, not an instant classic, but an instant antique.

Ends up being tedious.
