Rating: 2/5 -- More anti-union propaganda masquerading as entertainment. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- A film of bumper sticker emotions, rather than ideas that might actually be helpful. Full Review

Aug 6, 2019
Rating: 2/5 -- It is well meant, undoubtedly about something that matters, and it bends over backwards not to trash the teachers' unions gratuitously, but amid the attempts at gritty reality, I found the happy-ending imperative unconvincing. Full Review
Jan 24, 2013
Rating: 2/5 -- It's all way too much and perhaps the most troubling aspect is that it casts the teachers' union as the villain. Full Review

Gyllenhaal and Davis make a good team. The former is impulsive and enthusiastic, displaying an undefeatable determination. Davis is cautious and reserved, providing a balance and check to her partner in change. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- This is a gripping story, with only a few moments of awkwardness as policy details and pros and cons are explained. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- WON'T BACK DOWN makes grand drama of bureaucracy, positioning Gyllenhaal as the knight slaying 400 pages of government paperwork in order to wrest control of her daughter's elementary school.

Two headstrong mothers (Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis) wage a valiant struggle to save their children's troubled inner-city school, but find their forward-thinking efforts hampered at every turn by apathy and systematic bureaucracy. Holly Hunter, Rosie Perez, and Ving Rhames co-star.
