The Loudest Voice

Critics Consensus

While finely performed and often fascinating, The Loudest Voice's shallow interpretations undermine what could be a powerful indictment of one of media's most infamous figures.

Critic Reviews for The Loudest Voice Season 1

All Critics (54) | Top Critics (27)

A play-by-play of what he did, not who he is, or who he was.

Some filmmaker may one day undertake the story of Ailes, Fox News, the rise of the modern Republican Party and the presidency of Donald Trump and make it a worthy enterprise. Something that can't be said of this series.

Loudest Voice otherwise is riveting at the start and somewhat less so as time marches on. [Russell] Crowe's portrayal of Ailes of course is the major drawing card, and he is nothing if not fully immersed.

What is so disturbing about the series-what is so disturbing about history!-is that it doesn't matter. He still won.

Most of the viewers of "The Loudest Voice" are going to know all this already, but the miniseries simply wants to rile them up rather than dig into the story.

... More intent on probing the political and sociological impact of Fox News than the ferociously complicated psychology of the man who created it. It's a worthy mission, but it leaves the character at the center of the series at something of a distance.

It isn't perfect, but in an age when actual news cannot be relied upon for the truth, a show about the fall of journalism ironically paints a more accurate portrait of our times.

Aug 12, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The series tells a powerful story and tells it wonderfully, full of exceptional performances and smart writing that shows some voices can truly be louder than others when combined.

Jul 1, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Loudest Voice finale surprises in the way it draws a direct line between Ailes, who spearheaded Fox News' conservative agenda, and Donald Trump, the future president of the United States.

Aug 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The Loudest Voice feels like Vice without any of its flourishes, panache or even point of view. ... [It] lacks the point of view to even discernibly shame its subjects.
