  • Thomas Dods's rating of the film 6 Days

    A solid, competently made thriller with a very interesting subject matter. Despite some good period detail and great performances from Jamie Bell and Mark Strong, the film takes a docu-drama approach to the story and spreads itself too thinly across different sets of characters. We therefore lose some of the high stakes and emotional intensity needed to do justice to real life.
