But Cate Blanchett ... ahhhh. She doesn't impersonate Katharine Hepburn, she channels her. Full Review

We may enjoy watching the spectacles, but we don't much care for, or even have a feeling for, the guy in the cockpit. Full Review
James Berardinelli
A flawed but entertaining (and perhaps informative) tale. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Watching the actors and gorgeous trappings is an adventure in cognitive dissonance. I didn't believe a single minute in almost three hours, but enjoyed being there all the same. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Tainted or not, Hughes' life was a remarkable one, and, flawed or not, Scorsese's film version deserves the same accolade. Full Review
