Critic Reviews for The Forgiven
No attempt is made to win over the audience. This welcome absence of sentimentality allows us to experience Tutu's own crisis of faith as he attempts to reconcile this man's actions with his bedrock belief in forgiveness.
[The Forgiven] only succeeds as an ugly, empty-headed provocation.
Several powerful narratives vie for supremacy in the political drama "The Forgiven," but this sluggishly paced film's disparate parts never come together as a compelling whole.
"The Forgiven" is heavy-handed from its early texts explaining apartheid through its end credits.
At least gives the Commission's heroic chairman, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, his due by placing him front and center in its history - though it's debatable whether Forest Whitaker's glazed impersonation should be considered an honour.
The Forgiven tackles its important political and social issues in an overly talky fashion. The film has its merits, but it represents a significant comedown for the director of such classics as The Mission and The Killing Fields.
