Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 12/21/2007
"It's quite a yarn, and the filmmakers relate it with clarity and verve....[There is] a bracing, cheering present-day moral to be found in Charlie Wilson's story, a reminder that high principles are not incompatible with the pleasure principle."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/21/2007
"[I]t's all about a likable scoundrel who discovers what it means to act out of conviction....A journalistic satire of realpolitik..." -- Grade: B+
Total Film - 01/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- " [Hoffman is] sly, bumptious and brilliant...He brings Gust such gusto that the energy level spikes whenever he's on screen."
Rolling Stone - 12/27/2007
3 stars out of 4 -- "Hoffman is the film's sparkling live wire."
Uncut - 02/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he tone is sophisticated and the handling is remarkably light and adept."
Empire - 02/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's during the sparkling exchanges between the leads that the movie takes off. Hanks infuses Wilson with a bounce of charm we haven't seen from him in years.'
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2008
"The material certainly works as satire. The dialogue -- trademark Sorkin -- is all quickfire and smart, with witty wordplay that harks back to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s."
