The Iron Lady is a tremendously good movie in what it includes, but one that is sadly incomplete.
September 18, 2017
Played by the always exceptional Meryl Streep, Thatcher is given more humanity than she may actually deserve.
August 30, 2017
As for Streep, she's taken this material and run with it like Tim Tebow with a Hail Mary pass.
June 30, 2013
A solid tribute to the conservative icon despite its meandering focus on her failing health.

All of the film's flaws melt away in the face of another great performance by Streep.

Streep brilliantly conveying the movie's ultimate message: After all you accomplish in this life, it's the little things that may just be our intended destinies.

The filmmakers haven't come to any conclusion about Thatcher or, indeed, why they made a movie about her.

Not as satisfying as 'Kings Speech' or 'The Queen' but Streep's predictably flawless performance of Margaret Thatcher induces awe and rousing audience response.

Streep's performance of a dismissive line such as "People don't think anymore, they feel," will have even the most dyed-in-the-wool liberal questioning core beliefs.

Meryl Streep singlehandedly carries The Iron Lady with a performance-quite literally-for the ages.

A great performance can elevate a mediocre film, as is the case here - this is worth watching for Streep alone.

Great Streep, iffy movie.

January 19, 2012
A two-and-a-half-star movie raised to four-star status solely on the performances of Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent.

Streep's got my vote.

January 18, 2012
Streep wears Thatcher's body in her prime with authority and in her twilight with an all-too human sense of frailty, reminding us that, however iron-willed she was as a conservative politician, she is still decidedly human

Although this is an interesting movie, the character outshines the screenplay. That's not surprising considering that Meryl Streep is earning acclaim for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 'Iron Lady.'
