Bombshell The Best TV Shows of 2019

Critics Consensus

Bombshell benefits from a terrific cast and a worthy subject, but its impact is muffled by a frustrating inability to go deeper than the sensationalistic surface.

All Critics (77) | Top Critics (27) | Fresh (47) | for movies and TV (30)

  • It has a few strong moments, mostly courtesy of Robbie, but it's both underwhelming and overworked, inelegantly structured and missing something fundamental at the core.

  • The tone starts off as knowingly satirical and ends on an unearned note of inspirational earnestness.

    Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Here's the thing about sexism: It doesn't discriminate. It's an equal opportunity prejudice that cuts across history, culture, political affiliation. "Bombshell" gets this.

    Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A ferociously entertaining dramatization of how an unlikely group of women exposed and deposed media titan Roger Ailes, it is as harrowing as it is triumphant in its depiction of the way it all came to pass.

    Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It does cartwheels to make a vile tale compelling, and it can feel like a parade of starry impressions rather than something genuine. But to quote Ailes in the film, "It's a visual medium."

    Dec 12, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Bombshell" actively denies our natural desire for identification with a hero. [Kelly] occupies a space that is hero, victim and at times, villain, and it's a bold move for Theron and the filmmakers to make Kelly as challenging as she is.
