Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 04/01/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Morgan clearly has a deep affection for the source material and its protagonist while, as clough, Sheen hits screamers into the back of the net pretty much every time he's on screen."
Variety - 03/27/2009
"Sheen's typically scrupulous channeling of Clough gets the tics and mannerisms right, but also carves a moving portrait of a braggart suddenly out of his depth....Period styling throughout is on the money..."
Film Comment - 09/01/2009
"[The film] has an authentic aroma of English football in the Seventies....Michael Sheen nails his charismatic swagger; Colm Meaney is especially good as the mirthless Revie..."
Hollywood Reporter - 09/09/2009
"[T]his is historical fiction that continues Morgan's intriguing inquiry into the uses and abuses of power and how personalities get distorted by a taste of fame or success."
USA Today - 10/16/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "Well-made, with a seamless interweaving of archival footage, THE DAMNED UNITED is a straightforward character study. What vaults the film above the standard sports movie is the stellar performance by Michael Sheen."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/14/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It skillfully uses some archival footage, which evokes the pitch of feeling during a match."
New York Times - 10/14/2009
"THE DAMNED UNITED shares with THE QUEEN and FROST/NIXON not only a writer and a star, but also a precise and satisfying sense of proportion."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/16/2009
"It's no accident that Sheen displays some of the same incisive understanding of human inconsistency and political strategy that he demonstrated in THE QUEEN and FROST/NIXON: Peter Morgan wrote all three screenplays..."
Washington Post - 10/23/2009
"It's more than a detailed account of one man's petty vindictiveness in a bygone era. It's about how our hatred can consume us so deeply that we lose sight of everything."
