  • A long slog of a movie that insists on hitting the high spots like a Wiki page, which leaves little room to investigate the political and personal changes that altered Mandela's thoughts about violence and its uses. show more

  • A conventional biopic made anything but conventional by the magnitude of its subject's life and accomplishments, and by Idris Elba's imposing performance in the title role. show more

  • Mandela is straightforward storytelling of a type that’s somewhat out of fashion, but ultimately no less stirring for it. show more
