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.

Blanchett nearly saves it, but it's too much a plastic-Jesus biopic.

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.
| Original Score: 71/100

A moving but gritty story of willpower and sacrifice that stops pleasingly short of a Hollywood varnish-job.

Sporting a perfect Irish accent, [Cate Blanchett] imbues the character with a lot more presence than the script (and the director?) called for.

Veronica Guerin is a sharp study of the vices that sometimes goad us to virtue.

Plays well as a public service in bringing to world attention the details of the alarming event and, perhaps, as a cautionary tale for students in Journalism 101.

The movie is driven by a brilliant performance from Cate Blanchett, who becomes Veronica Guerin almost as easily as a caterpillar evolves into a butterfly.

Blanchett seldom disappoints, and doesn't here either.
