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.
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.
Excellent movie. Nice to finally hear the truth about Richard Jewell.
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.
direction could have been better.
Great movie, never realized what Richard went through.
Starts a little slow but middle and end of movie are well worth it
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
I loved it
What a great movie.
OH! MY! GOD!
Was not gratifying or uplifting in any way but it was an important message everyone needs to hear. The acting was outstanding, especially Kathy Bates.
I give it five Snickers out if five. RIP Mr Richard Jewell.
Loved it, Was overjoyed when Richard Jewell spoke up for himself. Very good acting.
Perfect example of how the media distroys people without consequence.
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 !!
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.
Really amazing movie despite the controversy. I can remember these events; it's amazing that the story is just now getting told.
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.
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.
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.
Very well done
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.
This showed how a person can be so quickly vilified before all the facts are gathered. I was young when this happened but I somewhat remember
Now the WORLD dose know his name "Richard Jewell"
Another excellent film. The acting in this movie was amazing.
Great acting? inspiring story of dedication to service, Kathy Bates is SO amazing (but not listed in cast?)
Clint Eastwood's movies never disappoint. I am glad this movie was made so that a seemingly good man's name is restored a little bit. Sad this happened to him.
Fantastic acting by lead role! Emotional yet funny movie and it's a true story
Really eye opening. Shows how your life could be turned upside and survive.
The true impact of absolute power corrupting absolutely. Goverment and the media left UNCHECKED
Very good movie centered around Who Richard actually is and his need to help. Richard Jewell is a great movie about the guy who might seem weird to you but you know he has good intentions..
a movie that gets you deeply thinking about what's true and what is manipulating . Good job like always Clint Eastwood!
Another Clint Eastwood film, another award ceremony.
The movie was beautifully done. The entire cast was amazing and did an excellent job. The very interesting and true story of Richard Jewell.
Excellent movie. It was nice to see and understand Richard Jewell's story. Great cast as well!
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.
