Bombshell

Critics Consensus

Bombshell benefits from a terrific cast and a worthy subject, but its impact is muffled by a frustrating inability to go deeper than the sensationalistic surface.

  • "Bombshell" actively denies our natural desire for identification with a hero. [Kelly] occupies a space that is hero, victim and at times, villain, and it's a bold move for Theron and the filmmakers to make Kelly as challenging as she is.

  • A movie with a compelling story to tell turns into a blunt-force polemic that can't stop hammering its message home.

    Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Theron, Kidman, and Robbie-all nominees for Screen Actors Guild awards-come out blazing in this tale of how the women of Fox News brought down a predatory CEO. It's explosive entertainment that means to make a difference. Listen up.

    Dec 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Ace casting shouldn't distract from the main issue: Unlikely, and in some cases, unlikeable women can change the game.

  • A whirlwind tour through one of American television's sleazier episodes.
