Six Minutes to Midnight | Ratings & Reviews

"How it could have taken British cinema... until now to get to such a tantalising nugget? The answer might be suggested by the stodge of the results here."

Financial TimesFinancial Times

"The word you're looking for is ... nein."

VultureVulture

"There’s a perfunctory feel to its chases, shootouts, close calls and shadowy behaviors, as well as to the often transparent dialogue."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Eddie Izzard... is bizarrely miscast in a deadpan-serious acting role for this weird, strained, second world war spy melodrama..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The double-crosses are depicted by (Goddard) with better-than-average craft, but the more the movie leans into old suspense conventions the more interest it loses..."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"The combination of heart-on-sleeve and tongue-in-cheek could hardly seem less expert."

Daily TelegraphDaily Telegraph

"The film is... rather rushed and seems disinterested in the details of its own story."

Associated PressAssociated Press

"It's Hitchcock without the verve, a succession of generic chases, only one of which is any fun..."

Wall Street JournalWall Street Journal

"Goddard's film is far too aware of its subject's peculiarity, and every frame knows full well that something is a bit off."

New York PostNew York Post

"Unfortunately, the school's actual history remains more fascinating than the narrative written by Izzard, Celyn and Goddard."

VarietyVariety

"Not even Judi Dench can save writer and star Izzard’s prewar romp from drab mediocrity."

The Irish TimesThe Irish Times

"The crackerjack espionage thriller that might have been, the one filled with ideas and purpose, is defeated by flat execution."

ABCABC

"The movie tells us at least three different stories at once and the spy story is the least interesting."

RogerEbert.comRogerEbert.com

"There's a fascinating film... trying to escape from this creaky passion project of Eddie Izzard's."

The TimesThe Times

"Fascinating if flawed... a genteel and stoic movie."

IndependentIndependent

"An unusually gentle-spirited spy tale."

Time MagazineTime Magazine

"Six Minutes to Midnight has a great title... a great cast (including Judi Dench and Jim Broadbent) and a great premise... Unfortunately, it's a desperately clunky affair..."

Daily MailDaily Mail

"Works overtime for scant reward."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A suspenseful film, made that way less from its prewar setting and the violence it contains, than by one man running - racing, really - to stop a conspiracy and prevent a disaster."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"Andy Goddard's film clumsily superimposes a frenzied, completely fictional spy adventure onto a fascinating fragment of pre-war history."
