Definately one of my new favorite films and the solid performance by Frank Langella says it all. Going from Dracula to Nixon is quite a long hard career and this performance in my opinion topped all his other works. The movie was engaging and interesting. Not everyone can take an interest in political science like Frost/Nixon but for those who can this is one not to be missed...

Somebody needs to award Michael Sheen w/an Oscar nom one of these days. He was great as Tony Blair in The Queen and now again as David Frost in Frost/Nixon. He seems to be expert at playing the suave smart Brit who gets out of jams.

While Frank Langella was excellent & definitely Oscar worthy, I found this informative & interesting but very slow. I understand that it was not possible to cut from it as it was all pertinent information to the story line, but my husband slept most of the way thru it & I found my mind & eyes wandering all over the theater. While I see the attraction to this film & understand the hype for

Fantastic flick. Acting on the part of Langella is oscar worthy. I expected more of a documentary but was hooked from the start and captivated until the dramatic ending. Bravo.

It's hard to imagine how a film built around one-on-one interviews could be entertaining, but Frost/Nixon could not be more enthralling. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Morgan's compact, satisfying drama presents presidential interviewing as a gladiatorial event. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Howard and Morgan have transformed this story into something more than an embellished re-telling of recent history. They have shaped a tragedy that is almost Shakespearean in force. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
What Ron Howard gets, to a degree that's astonishing in a two-hour film, is the density and complexity, as well as the generous entertainment quotient, of Peter Morgan's screenplay. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
The result is involving, engrossing cinema -- more thrilling, in fact, than Howard's "The Da Vinci Code" -- filmmaking of a type rarely seen anymore and sorely missed. Full Review
