Ratings & Reviews

  1.'s rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    A brilliant performance by Martin Sheen playing a young David Frost interviewing Nixon about Watergate.

  2. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    To convey an impression or merely impersonate? A decision for anyone when playing a real person. Plenty of decisions to make here with two high profile central characters (and a few other minor ones too) amid a real event. It’s distracting that we get a mix of both approaches with Langella providing a sense of one man (complexity on his side) and Sheen just impersonating the other (glibness not on his).

  3. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    It cultivates the fantasy that American democracy shall be saved by network entertainers, by the Colberts, Stewarts, and Oliviers of the world - and we all know ten years later how well that turned out! Frost/Nixon isn't cinema, it is television through and through, reducing politics to a simple game of communication, carelessly doing the exact same mistakes of its protagonist. Ron is just looking for a good show.

  4. lbunuel's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    This is such a disgrace that calling it academic is seriously overrating it. Ron Howard is the quintessentially conformist filmmaker - a hack if there ever was one.

  5. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Un soggetto difficile per una storia così nota che la sceneggiatura difficilmente sarebbe potuta scampare dal baratro della prevedibilità, ma ciononostante la regia, il corpo attoriale e la cura dei dettagli sono decisamente di buonissimo livello. Una storia politica a prova di inesperti, dove i dettagli complessi sono stati sapientemente smussati, per ottenere un risultato finale godibile da chiunque.

  6. Horia Constantinescu's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

  7. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

  8. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Is any film about a historical event JUST about that historical event? Probably not.

  9. Ahmed Hasan's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

  10. Thomas's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Routine biopic of an isolated moment in history. Good attention to period detail, but left me cold.

  11. Kyle Knapp's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Silly, slight, presentational, sitcommy, superficial, formulaic, and lame. Perhaps there could be a way to make this story seaworthy, but Peter Morgan and the toothless Howard are not the men for the job. This film needed to take a huge step either in the direction of comedy or drama, because where it stands it's either a farcically insubstantial drama or a woefully unfunny comedy. Frank Langella is the man, though.

  12. Antonio León Medina's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Una de las primeras películas que vi en la universidad en lenguaje audiovisual.

  13. FAKE_001's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    don't hit me with your american dream!

  14. W2's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    I had been avoiding this film due to my belief that Howard tendancies toward sentimentality would wreck an otherwise brilliant period piece. I was wrong. Good show.

  15. Isaac Groves's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    While Richie Cunninghams direction is predictably 'meh' in it's incredibly straightforward nature, the film itself is lifted by some very good actors, in particular the two leads but with some unsurprisingly great supporting turns from the likes of Sam Rockwell and Oliver Platt

  16. Tom Elce's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Streamlined capturing of a historic encounter as bestowed upon the world by Ron Howard. In other words: insincere crap.

  17. angelicidea's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    TV interview as a boxing match. Interesting concept...

  18. Vanessa Caswell's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    I'm not usually interested in political drama films. I often find them boring. But when you have a bunch of talented individuals & an interesting piece of history, I can certainly pay attention. supporting performances were good, Sam Rockwell is always predictably entertaining to watch.Michael Sheen & Frank Langella were excellent! They were compelling, layered & like their real-life counterparts. Good one Ron Howard

  19. Ben Wheeler's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Ron Howard shows considerable skill in his portrayal of the duel between Frost and Nixon. It's fascinating to watch where the cuts go during the interviews: only the reactions of the opposing team members act as a cypher. The reactions show us who's winning the duel. Frank Langella is wonderful too. That's the good. The bad: irrelevant subject matter, hammy acting by the rest of the cast and awful exposition.

  20. AyynaMkay's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    kept me in tension for the entire 2 hours or more. totally different angle of the issue. people are people - depeche mode

  21. rorydean's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Michael Sheen and Frank Langella make this film more than it is - a period piece, part docudrama and part fictionalized account of a piece of history both glamorized and criticized with a light touch by Howard. Rockwell, Bacon and Platt are solid in supporting roles. The story moves quickly enough though it is apparent the premise loses momentum as the inevitable last day of the interview looms.

  22. GIYGAS's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Stage play works a little better with the material, but Sheen and Langella hit every beat.

  23. OldGregg69's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    clever. This film would not have been made twenty years ago, and if it was no one would have seen it. Unique

  24. Brian O'blivion's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

    Simplistic and deceiving. History lesson for the ronhowards.
