Critic Reviews of "Extraordinary Measures"Film.comMarch 02, 2010
Harrison Ford still retains enough of his old movie star magic to ramp up the electricity a bit when he's onscreen, but this only makes you want to see him do something that makes better use of his gifts. Brendan Fraser just seems to grow bigger over theTime OutFebruary 26, 2010
Moderately illuminating in parts, but the clichÃ (C)s of cinematic suffering tend to overwhelm it.Christian Science MonitorJanuary 25, 2010
There's something off-putting about this film's optimism: After all, how many people can afford to do what Crowley did?Chicago ReaderJanuary 25, 2010
It sometimes feels like one of those "disease of the week" TV movies from the 1970s.Salon.comJanuary 25, 2010
It's about as dramatically taut as your garden-variety board meeting. And it makes you realize that jerking a tear or two isn't necessarily a bad thing for a filmmaker to do, if it at least keeps your audience awake.New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 25, 2010
Anyway, I cried. A lot. What can I say? I'm a sucker for kids on ventilators.ComingSoon.netMarch 21, 2011
Extraordinary Measures is a celery of a film; humorless, flavorless, mediocre through and through.IGN DVDOctober 16, 2010
Extraordinary Measures strives to tug at our heartstrings, and educate us on a little publicized disease, but it ends up feeling like a drug itself - manufactured using artificial chemicals by technicians in a cold lab.Window to the MoviesMay 22, 2010
Easy to root for a loving father fighting through the system, but Extraordinary Measures shamelessly piles on the sentimentality and disregards the real work of the many scientists dedicated to fighting this disease for years.TheMovieReport.comMay 17, 2010
A garden variety disease-of-the-week TV movie dressed up with cinema marquee names.Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)April 02, 2010
If the two leading characters were women, this would have gone straight to the Lifetime network.
