Critic Reviews for Watergate Miniseries

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Superb, but not for the casual viewer.

Serious stuff. But the movie -- more than four hours long, split into two parts with a cliffhanger in the middle - also works, perhaps unexpectedly, as escapist entertainment.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a near definitive portrait of the granddaddy of 20th-century political scandals, in all its nitty, gritty, dirty-tricks-and-Tricky-Dicks glory.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A rivetingly thorough account of what took down Richard Milhous Nixon, and plenty of others in his administration.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

There is plenty to relish here in the first-hand accounts offered up by the couple of dozen witnesses called upon by Ferguson.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Watergate... makes the serious misstep of dramatically reenacting the Nixon tapes... it's still worthwhile as a dense look at America's past -- and in terms of checking executive actions, perhaps a preview of its future.

The sordid tale is a deftly structured true-crime saga, with writer-director Charles Ferguson narrating.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

A true-life Oval Office scandal is retold in gripping fashion by Oscar-winning documentarian Charles Ferguson.

Nov 2, 2018 | Full Review…

This impossible-to-miss parallel is a good portion of what gives Charles Ferguson's Watergate its urgency. It's also what is most likely to glue you to your seat for 260 minutes of this thorough and engaging, but generally uninspiring, film.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Here is a film that does not insult your intelligence, but also requires constant attention.

Audience Reviews for Watergate: Miniseries

  • Nov 03, 2018
    Holy shit! Nixon, Kissinger & the whole crew cursing (as their excerpted recordings attest in this treatment) their 'cocksuck'n' heads off! Can't wait to see what the current WH inhabitants have been up to, especially as the Koch & right-wing think tanks have 'evolved' those crude playbooks developed over a century, now with virtually unlimited resources born by their 'labors' recently so massively concentrated in their slimy mits (if ever, given how intricately well they have us all ‘covered’). Will ‘American Justice' prevail after all? Stay tuned!
