Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: For sure, Antwone Fisher is corny. But it's corny in a way that a Hollywood movie about a boy who just wants to go home ought to be corny.
Fresh: A fine film that proves the past is never too bleak -- or the future too hopeless -- to discover a productive new life, and a home and family to share it.
Fresh: A riveting story well told.
Rotten: A mind-numbing, soul-deadeningly dull experience, it is a miracle of mediocrity, a small wonder: how can anything be quite this tedious?
Denzel's Magnum Opus
"Antwone Fisher" is one of the few films out there that succeeds at making a tragic story relatable to all types of people. Slowly paced and poignantly acted, this is a film that will make you depressed at times, but in the end, lift your spirits with its story of the celebration of human life.

This movie is great. Great story, great acting, never feels fake, in fact, it's damn near perfect. Highly recommended.
Very Well Done!!!
This movie is very true to life...It was very cool to see the boy who was hurt so many times finally be at peace with himself and accepting where he had come from; and in the end being with all his family who truly loved him.... Very well done movie...
