PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"'Bobby' (...) seems like a masterpiece compared with this inadvertently tacky restaging of events." (Peter Debruge: Variety)
----------------------------------------
"Landesman's script is full of cringeworthy lines (...) and the direction isn't much more competent (...) And given how many strong actors there are in the cast, it's disappointing how weak their performances are." (Oliver Lyttelton: Indiewire)
----------------------------------------
"'Parkland' offers a fresh and affecting slant on that traumatic slice of history (...) The film is exceptionally well made, with a fine cast making the most of small but telling roles." (Stephen Farber: The Hollywood Reporter)
----------------------------------------
"If the film finally doesn't tell us anything we did not already know, the approach makes a worn-out old tragedy feel supple and urgent. (...) Rating: *** (out of five)" (Xan Brooks: The Guardian)
----------------------------------------
"The events of those days would have been better covered in greater depth in a miniseries, rather than a 90-minute movie. (...) Rating: **1/2 (out of four)" (Claudia Puig: USA Today)
----------------------------------------
"Because the film (...) offers no new insights, theories or important information, you’re left wondering why it was made." (Stephen Holden: The New York Times)
----------------------------------------
"'Parkland' tells a lot of stories, though rather harriedly. (...) Rating: ** (out of four)" (Michael Phillips: Chicago Tribune)
----------------------------------------
"Sadly, what 'Parkland' becomes is a crying shame. (...) Rating: *1/2 (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
