Reviewer: Ewan FDate: 2020-01-19

This film is a scathing look inside mega corporations. There’s very strong performances all round, from Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly and Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson Margot Robbie as the made up Kayla (although the scenarios she’s placed in are no doubt based on fact). The film also spotlights casual sexism as the women working for Fox are told to wear short dresses and aren’t allowed to wear pants. As well as a commentary on the sleaziness of higher ups in corporations, it also celebrates the courage shown by people like Carlson who speak up even when they know it could cost them everything. Theron displays her characters inner conflict brilliantly, working up to the stage where she’s ready to speak out too. Bombshell is a great movie standing alone but a movie that also feels relevant in this #MeToo era.

Must see

Reviewer: HypnochickyDate: 2020-01-19

Relevant, current and a must see. A real eye-opener and although not overtly explicit, it's clear what's going on here.

Exposure

Reviewer: Bond 2Date: 2020-01-17

Fascinating exposure of what was really going on at Fox News. Great depiction not only of a monster of a boss but a toxic office too - and all the dynamics that go on. Charlize Theron presents a very professional portrayal of Megyn Kelly

Watchable

Reviewer: daveh44Date: 2020-01-17

Three actresses who can act, but not really given the chance in this film. Not as hard hitting as it could have been. Watching it, I felt a little like a fly on the wall to a news report. It failed to drag me in, when it so easily could have.
