Time Out New York
Bold performance or not, you can see history weighing heavily on Elba’s shoulders (in later scenes as an older man, you can see the makeup, too). Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
A cursory history lesson with no interest in probing the deeper or more complex implications of Mandela's positions and their relationship to his country's shifting landscape. Full Review

USA Today
Sometimes it's the most remarkable and heroic figures whom movies can't seem to get right. Such is the case with Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, a biopic that is more dutiful than illuminating. Full Review
Connie Ogle
Miami Herald
A better primer-for-the-uninitiated than an in-depth, fresh and insightful examination of a famous and remarkable life. Full Review
David Gritten
The Telegraph
With the magnificent Elba to anchor it, the film gradually achieves a sort of grandeur, in the manner of the hero it depicts. Full Review
