Mesmo beneficiada por uma performance impecvel de Meryl Streep, acaba soando mais como um cruzamento entre Uma Mente Brilhante e A Vida Dura - A Histria de Dewey Cox.

Although this film contains a great performance by Streep (one of the greatest actors of her generation) and strong supporting performances, the muddled multi-flashback story spends far too much time on Thatcher's late life mental problems.

As a biopic, The Iron Lady does the bare minimum of what it needed.
January 29, 2012
Despite Streep's great performance, the film wavers between a touching story about a sympathetic old woman and a cautionary tale of hubris gone wild.

One-of-a-kind, chimpanzees-pounding-on-typewriters awfulness.

Can a mediocre movie be made worthwhile by a single performance?
January 26, 2012
Streep's strong. The movie, not so much.
January 21, 2012
Memorable performance, forgettable movie.

If you're looking for a terrific docudrama, you're going to be very, very disappointed. Total cookie-cutter and only Meryl Streep's performance holds it together.

Wastes an extraordinary Meryl Streep performance as the filmmakers muck about in maudlin meanderings that probably would have earned them a severe tongue-lashing from the film's formidable subject.

If the idea is to humanise the woman, it's rather wasted. If there's one thing Margaret Thatcher won't be remembered for, it's her humanity.

...a perfectly adequate movie that satisfies most of the requisites for pop history - it's snarky and smarmy at the same time, and it seems unlikely to challenge anyone's preconceived notion of who Thatcher was or is ...

As we discover, screenwriter Abi Morgan is less interested in Thatcher the world leader than she is in Thatcher the dotty shut-in.

Forget for a minute the movie's soft-pedaling of its central character. ... With so much history and personality to draw upon, it's infuriating that so much of the running time is wasted on mere speculation involving an elderly person's flights of fancy.
January 14, 2012
...one of those problematic films that contain several things that are good, and one that is excellent, yet seem in the end seems to have no particular need to have been made in the first place.
