Critic Reviews for The Lennon Report

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Despite the admittedly unique angle, this ambitious drama gets crushed under the considerable weight of its artistic, as well as budgetary, limitations.

October 6, 2016 | Full Review…

"The Lennon Report" offers no special insights into Lennon, or the country, or that awful night, but it does bring back the time. It looks and feels like 1980.

October 6, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Profe does an admirable job walking us through the day's events, weaving together the accounts of people on the scene.

October 5, 2016 | Full Review…

Dramatic recreation of the night John Lennon was murdered matter-of-factly recalls a dirtier, less tourist-friendly New York City and an era when bad news was no surprise.

October 6, 2016 | Full Review…

The production doesn't have the budget to fully recreate the era, but "The Lennon Report" comes through with an original vision for a dire subject matter.

October 6, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

What hampers The Lennon Report are its austere budget -- we're told that 1980 is an especially violent year in New York, yet the hospital is all but deserted -- and its occasionally sub-par acting.
