Reviews


75
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Green wisely cedes control to his actors, with Bullock as the main engine pulling the material along. But neither his direction, nor any of the formidable performances, can do much to alleviate the bumpy road of Peter Straughan's screenplay.
75
Hitfix - Gregory Ellwood
The film is at its best when the storyline gets dangerously real and Bullock’s character struggles to justify the back room king making of a campaign with the needs of the country’s poor majority.
70
Variety - Peter Debruge
As played by Sandra Bullock, Our Brand Is Crisis political spin doctor Jane Bodine is easily one of the best female roles of the last 10 years.
70
Village Voice - Amy Nicholson
David Gordon Green's Our Brand Is Crisis is a horror film wrapped in fast-talking political comedy.
60
The Guardian - Benjamin Lee
The film is in need of an edge that Peter Straughan’s screenplay fails to deliver.... Yet Sandra Bullock seems blissfully unaware of the film’s faults and delivers a performance that expertly plays on her strengths.
