The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
Anyone who says voting is a waste of time needs to watch this film.

The New York Times - Ben Kenigsberg
If the paranoia level could probably withstand a slight reduction, much of the movie feels utterly credible.

Time Out - Tomris Laffly
While it lacks the emotional intensity of the duo’s Oscar-nominated The Square—a rousing 2013 look at Egypt’s Arab Spring—The Great Hack still feels of a piece, inviting viewers to contemplate the power and irreversibility of their online footprint.

The Hollywood Reporter - Dan Fienberg
The Great Hack uses a decent rehash of the Cambridge Analytica scandal as the starting point for an interesting two-pronged character study, an instigation for provocative ideas about data crime and what is ultimately a really, really, really conflicted look at when it's terrifying having corporations learning things about our online habits and when it's cool.

Rolling Stone - David Fear
You know you’re in the hands of professionals here — Noujaim was a director or co-director on such solid nonfiction works as "Startup.com" (2001), "Control Room" (2004), and "The Square" (2013) — even if the proceedings sometimes come off like Muckraking Moviemaking 101.
