Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A case of smart and talented people trying to jam a Cold War square into a Gulf War circle. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Following a dozen years of docs, light comedy, and p.c. weepies, Candidate represents Demme's best dramatic filmmaking since The Silence of the Lambs. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Aug 4, 2004

Fresh: Jonathan Demme's new Manchurian Candidate is a gourmet-popcorn movie--a hugely entertaining thriller shot through with dark shards of agony and paranoia. It takes nothing away from the original while delivering pleasures all its own. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Mar 13, 2018

Fresh: A stylish hoot: entertainingly edgy and ludicrous all at once. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

The Manchurian Candidate

This movie was awesome if you like a good thriller. buy it, you will love it!


I am a huge Denzel Washington fan. His movies never disappoint me. Neither did this one. This is definitely one of his more creepy ones though. You really have to pay attention, otherwise it is confusing.
