  • The film belongs to Jolie. She won an Oscar for 1999's "Girl, Interrupted," but this is by far her best performance. show more

  • The film's point of view is inevitably that of an outsider, which Danny Pearl was, and menace is the essence of this shattering story, which has been told with skill and urgent conviction. A Mighty Heart makes the terms of the terrorist threat palpable. show more

  • For the most part, Michael Winterbottom's well-intended film, the true story of an idealistic journalist and his gallant wife disinvites emotion by focusing on process at the expense of passion. show more

    Enjoyed the movie. Thought the story was well told and understandable. Their was no overacting by any of the characters.Very realistically done.Whole cast well acted and there was nooveracting. The story is more documentary and is not made to be a Hollywood story but a realistic story.Angelie Jolie was perfect with her dialect, mannerisms and was a ideal casting . Told a good story about terrorism and the suffering of peopleand families.LYNDA DIAMOND :)

    This movie put all three of us who saw it today asleep several times and it was in the afternoon! This movie is so boring and slow. It is a sad true story but should not have been made into a feature movie. A TV docudrama would have been much better.
