WHAT A GOOD MOVIE, I AGREE THAT THE FACT THAT IT WAS BASED ON A TRUE STORY MAKES IT THAT MUCH BETTER. A LITTLE KNOWN FACT IS THAT THE AREA WHERE THE RANCH WAS AT THAT TIME WAS CALLED WINEVILLE, THE CITY CHANGED IT BECAUSE OF THE BAD PUBLICITY. ITS NOW KNOWN AS MIRALOMA. EASTWOOD IS THE BEST

It is mind-boggling that this is a true story. How is it that I have never heard of it before, like any other well-known Hollywood crime, or famous serial-killer? The movie would not have even been good if it were not based on true events, because it would have been unbelieveable that such things could really happen (outside of science-fiction).

Washington Post
Despite a mysterious title, Changeling isn't a mystery. It is, occasionally, agony. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
The truth about the case of Christine Collins is so shocking and dramatic that embellishment must have seemed pointless, but in sticking so close to the historical record, Mr. Straczynski and Mr. Eastwood have produced a distended, awkward narrative whose strongest themes are lost in the murky pomp of period detail. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
While the neo-Gothic tale is inherently intriguing, the film should inspire strong emotion, but deliberate pacing and a contained sense of melodrama make it a surprisingly passive experience. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Slate
All of Eastwood's rigorous craftsmanship seems wasted on a movie whose message never rises above the bumper-sticker admonition that "mean people suck." Full Review
James Berardinelli
ReelViews
While Straczynski should be commended for remaining reasonably true to the historical record, this results in an open-ended conclusion that isn't entirely satisfying. Full Review
