It mixes attempts at realism and grit with transparently Hollywoodized good guys-vs.-bad guys social melodrama. That requires a deft directorial hand, but director Daniel Barnz doesn't seem to have it. Full Review

Rating: B- -- Social-issue movies can have real societal impact. That's why Won't Back Down, which presses a lot of hot buttons, deserves to be taken seriously, and criticized seriously, on its own terms. 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: 3/5 -- The forces of unionism are mainly pilloried as lazy sell-outs, which is a pity, because a lot of other tangy issues come into play here.

Jan 24, 2013
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

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

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