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"

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

not all roses, but it's a decent, well-made thriller of the sort that we don't get much anymore... It's tempting to say that we're getting Caine's best work only now.

Worth catching for Caine's bravura turn as a despicable old man begging for sympathy, and also for its fascinating insights into the darker side of both France and the Catholic Church.

It ought to be riveting, but it too often plods along, caught up in the mechanics of its cat-and-mouse plot.

... more intriguing than riveting, flattened by Jewison's plodding direction and distracting use of British actors to play French characters.

Raises such important issues -- guilt, conscience, the memory of the Holocaust -- that, along with Jewison's skill and Caine's power, they carry the movie.

Caine's performance makes it a striking portrait of a man of faith's profound hypocrisy.
