Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 09/08/2013
"Idris Elba gives a towering performance..."
USA Today - 11/29/2013
"[T]he talent of the lead actors lends it heft, particularly the commanding performance of Idris Elba as Mandela."
Los Angeles Times - 11/27/2013
"Elba just about defines charisma in a performance that capitalizes on the actor's innate dignity and strength."
Wall Street Journal - 11/28/2013
"[A] respectful biopic...[with] the superb performance Idris Elba in the title role."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/26/2013
"It's impossible not to be moved by the brute force of Mandela the man's tragic life."
Rolling Stone - 11/27/2013
"It's an astounding performance. Elba may not resemble the man he's playing, but he gets the details right, from the singsong accent and shrewd image-making to the fire for change that drives him."
Washington Post -
3 stars out of 4 -- "[The film] does a worthy job of honoring both its subject and its audience....The story propels itself along while awakening in viewers some profound emotions."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/24/2013
"[Elba] turns in maybe the most complete and compelling interpretation of Mandela the man and Mandela the symbol..."
Total Film - 12/30/2013
4 stars out of 5 -- "This is a handsome and confident adaptation of the great man's autobiography, using sharp snapshots to create an emotional through-line."
