Blanchett's Veronica is a mesmerizing, complicated force of nature in this true-life tale.

This is no Erin Brockovich.
April 19, 2009
Cate Blanchett gives a tour de force performance as Veronica Guerin under Joel Schumacher's direction of a no-nonsense script by Carol Doyle and Mary Agnes Donoghue.

Cate Blanchett is a vital presence as Veronica and should have romantic teenagers lining up to get into journalism school.
October 15, 2007
Well-meaning but simpleminded.
September 9, 2007
...a respectful quasi-documentary
July 24, 2007
Blanchett nearly saves it, but it's too much a plastic-Jesus biopic.
June 4, 2007
While this is a movie that deserves a mildly favourable recommendation, it's also nothing short of a catastrophic fumble and an incredible lost opportunity.
December 30, 2006
A moving but gritty story of willpower and sacrifice that stops pleasingly short of a Hollywood varnish-job.
August 8, 2006
If you take out Cate Blanchett's amazing performance, you're left with a dull husk of a film from a director who knows little about filmmaking.
January 26, 2006
Blanchett gets the accent impeccably, and encompasses both the woman's determined heroism and her delight in the picture byline, but neither she nor the screenplay digs any deeper than secular hagiography.
October 31, 2004
Cate Blanchett is most likely the greatest actress working in film today.
August 7, 2004
While I was watching Veronica Guerin, starring Cate Blanchett, I kept imagining the movie it might have been before director Joel Schumacher and producer Jerry Bruckheimer got their hands on it.
August 3, 2004
Sporting a perfect Irish accent, [Cate Blanchett] imbues the character with a lot more presence than the script (and the director?) called for.
July 29, 2004
Guerin has the outward appearance of a quaint but brutal Irish gem like the works of Jim Sheridan and Neil Jordan, but looks are deceiving
June 13, 2004
Veronica Guerin is a sharp study of the vices that sometimes goad us to virtue.
March 18, 2004
Has its virtues, but they're the kind you can buy.
February 9, 2004
What you will take away from this movie is another fine performance by Blanchett.
