Atom User Reviews for Richard Jewell
This movie was an eye opener how the media can quickly ruin an innocent citizens life over a unverified details it almost looks like what we see our news stations doing today except Twitter wasn’t born yet so the news and newspapers were more powerful back than glad this painted the truth Clint Eastwood will be busy making more of these keep it up sir
THE FBI IS CORRUPT AND THE MEDIA IS A WHORE.
Excellent movie. Nice to finally hear the truth about Richard Jewell.
Portrayed the true story of the aftermath for Richard Jewell very well. An emotional eye-opening film, I couldn't get enough. Was one of those movies you never wanted to end.
Time and time again government agents have proven they can not be trusted.
Accurate story, emotional moments, flawless acting.
Great movie. Clint did it again.
A beautiful heart framed by government. I'm glad for the outcome
Great movie I loved it
Good true story. A little drawn out and boring at times. Could have shortened it a bit, but you see the hell this poor guy and his mom went through.
A good guy that was just trying to do his job .. Definitely puts light on how crooked and corrupt the media really is, and how they can completely RUIN a persons life with false accusations.
An appropriate story that relates to our current headlines.
Really enjoyed the movie.
this movie had everything anyone can ask for in a movie. this movie had brought tears to my eyes and i will see this movie again !!
Watched it with wifey and enjoyed it! Great movie!
Kathy Bates Oscar worthy performance.
In an era when conservatives didn’t trust Obama, and now liberals don’t trust Trump, this great movie reminds us we are all expendable to an overreaching government.
I remember the Atlanta bombing but not Richard Jewell’s story. I am. glad this was told. And the story is relevant as it was in1996. Clint Eastwood does a great job with excellent performances. If you are interested in a historic event watch this movie.
Another excellent film. The acting in this movie was amazing.
Everyone did such a great job in this movie. So glad I saw it.
Great movie. Even though a true story, it still kept you on the edge of your seat. Great cast and acting! A must see!
A GREAT FILM!!! Awesome cast and directing 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
The movie overall wasn’t bad. I know it got a lot of backlash because people felt Clint Eastwood made the parties originally involved look bad, but I really feel it was a good depiction of what took place. It shed a light on different things such as greed, desperation and how a person can fall victim because of their own personal wants.
It’s a good film. Too bad he didn’t live long after his name was cleared.
Another Clint Eastwood film, another award ceremony.
a movie that gets you deeply thinking about what's true and what is manipulating . Good job like always Clint Eastwood!
direction could have been better.
Fantastic acting by lead role! Emotional yet funny movie and it's a true story
Outstanding movie that sheds light on a such a tragic moment in US history. I lived during this event and the government truly tried to railroad this guy. He was on the news 24/7 and the media and FBI had already determined he was guilty long before he ever got a trial. Richard Jewell could have been put to death for something he didn’t do. Was he an odd guy? Sure. But he was a hero that day. RIP Richard...
great story - good acting
Perfect example of how the media distroys people without consequence.
What a great movie.
I give it five Snickers out if five. RIP Mr Richard Jewell.
One of the best FILMS I’ve ever seen!
Loved it, Was overjoyed when Richard Jewell spoke up for himself. Very good acting.
This was a good screenplay that was well cast. Clint did it again.
I’m sorry but no adult male with such an enabling mother is as innocent as this movie tried to portray him. He had been arrested for frightening and way over-the-line behaviors in the past. He was creepy! And there were VERY good reasons he was being investigated. This movie attempts to tug at heartstrings that it has no business plucking.
This movie is proof of how many people have been unjustly had their lives ruined by people and the media by one or more people jumping to conclusions. This was a great movie that shows just one of those type of stories with heart and feeling, it is a great movie and a story everyone should see.
Really amazing movie despite the controversy. I can remember these events; it's amazing that the story is just now getting told.
I am definitely coming to see it again
Great movie I loved it, must see.
Now the WORLD dose know his name "Richard Jewell"
It was a well made, touching movie
it was good but not great. acting was superb. I felt it lacked a big powerful feel good ending. However seeing it's a true story, we all know how it ends anyways. 3 1/2 stars out of 5.
More diverting is the increasingly desperate forensics the FBI resorts to in order to build a case against Jewell, though it’s not always clear which tactics are simply thorough, now outdated, or flagrantly illegal. But Richard Jewell has so little to say about its time period or how the culture has shifted that it ends up exposing the relative quaintness of its concerns.
It’s Hauser who carries the film in a rare and unlikely role, that of a presumed loser in life (the man did die just a few years later, at 44) who suffered very unwanted attention — but who, when he needed to, found a way to rise to the occasion.
Thankfully, Eastwood’s sure grasp of this inherently compelling story mostly overcomes his sentimental propensities.
