Critic Reviews of "Changeling"Time OutNovember 28, 2008
It's a tough movie but also rewarding and inspiring: something of a quiet triumph.Film.comNovember 10, 2008
Eastwood, who has made fine movies in recent years, has got hold of a humdinger of a story. But he's too detached and lazy here.ReelViewsOctober 31, 2008
Clint Eastwood's Changeling falls into a common trap: by trying to do too much, it accomplishes too little.Newark Star-LedgerOctober 31, 2008
This is one movie where the star really is the star. And delivers a performance of which any actress can be truly proud.Miami HeraldOctober 31, 2008
If Changeling lacks the knockout power of, say, Million Dollar Baby, it proves that Eastwood continues to seek out stories that take him places he hasn't been before -- and the audience along with him.Detroit NewsOctober 31, 2008
It is a misfire, a silly and borderline absurd story that cannot excuse its twists and turns with the simple 'a true story' declaration that opens the film.Maclean's MagazineApril 07, 2015
In a movie "based on" a true story, if the drama doesn't have a ring of authenticity, it can seem even more suspect than fiction, especially if the source material is distant and obscure: it makes you wonder what really happened.Stop SmilingApril 07, 2015
Eastwood's latest confirms its director as the dean of American melodramatists and as an accomplished yet unadventurous artist as uncomfortable with ambiguity as his admirers appear to be.Matt's Movie ReviewsMarch 07, 2014
Angelina Jolie evokes every parent's worst nightmare, and provides a career defining performance while doing so.American ProfileSeptember 28, 2011
Rich in authentic-looking period detail and punctuated with powerful acting, Eastwood's tale holds you in its firm, grim grip.Digital SpyJuly 14, 2011
What we're left with is a straightforward sob story; a haunting, matter-of-fact depiction of cruel injustice that couldn't fail to touch a nerve in any context.rec.arts.movies.reviewsMay 17, 2011
Jolie is alternately distraught and outraged (in good ways) but Eastwood's film is an odd mix of genres that never quite settles into the one we want to watch.
