  • The movie has a lot of problems, which well deal with momentarily, but for a while, at least, deck stacking isnt one of them. ( Read More )
  • Kevin Costner shines in Mike Binders disappointingly dull and safe playing race relations drama. ( Read More )
  • Kevin Costner scowls and darts around the dubious thin line between racism and un sugarcoated truthfulness that only anti P.C. wingnuts actually believe exists. ( Read More )
  • Paste Magazine

    Its an honest, difficult moment, one in which the movie isnt woefully afraid of how loudly or how lightly its treading. ( Read More )
  • Spirituality And Practice

    A family drama that shies away from any serious examination of racism in America ( Read More )
