This film is great on many levels, from entertainment to technical. Clooney has made with The Ides of March the post honeymoon period of the Obama era film.

Altogether, Ides of March is a very neat package. Eye candy aside, smart yourself up in this feature.
July 29, 2019
It is suspenseful, engaging and interesting, if not exactly a pleasure to watch.
June 8, 2019
A smart, engaging October drama that feels completely of the moment, as if its fingers are directly on the pulse of our political climate.

This is a fascinating look at politics, with Clooney making the most out of a strong, and very talented, cast... I just wish Clooney could have found another way to get to his desired destination.
February 8, 2019
Still, The Ides of March is very entertaining. Fans of the actors and fans of thoughtful, lively movies alike should be well-pleased.

The story is a brilliant human chess game.

[The Ides of March] is very playlike: It's based on the stage show Farragut North by Beau Willimon. But that feeling doesn't harm the film, as Clooney stages all the confrontations -- the movie is full of them -- with a deft hand.

The Ides of March may not cover any new ground in its exploration of the shadier side of American politics, but it's nevertheless an enjoyable journey down the campaign trail.
November 6, 2018
Surprisingly effective for such a by-the-numbers political drama.
August 30, 2018
A topical, intelligent and compelling affair.
August 24, 2018
If only the film had been 90 minutes of Giamatti and Hoffman instead of Gosling and Clooney, then this could have been an excellent political drama.
January 4, 2018
For my money, The Ides Of March -- with its dark view of human nature and satisfyingly twisty plot -- is one of the most entertaining films ever made about the political process.
October 23, 2017
In all, The Ides of March is watchable, but not a must-see.
September 18, 2017
As a director, [George Clooney] has never been more self assured, giving this political morality play the pacing of a gut-wrenching thriller.
September 8, 2017
Real shame about the ending, but the rest of the movie is just marvelous.
August 30, 2017
The fault lies not in the stars, but in a script than underestimates us.
July 13, 2016
A well-told tale of filthy politics and betrayal; a virtuoso hat trick (writing, directing, and starring) by George Clooney. It almost makes you wish he'd stop acting and run for office.
May 22, 2016
It's ultimately less political thriller or election allegory than morality play in partisan dress.
May 10, 2016
Despite the puddles, it all seems a little too clinical. It's Giamatti and Hoffman who turn up to chew the scene, intensely yet effortlessly, and it's only too bad the narrative relegates them to the sidebar.
