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."Total Film "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..."Variety "[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..."Film Comment "[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."Hollywood Reporter 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."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It skillfully uses some archival footage, which evokes the pitch of feeling during a match."Chicago Sun-Times "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."New York Times "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..."Entertainment Weekly "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."Washington Post47.47674
