Movie Reviews

ReelViews - 10/10 by James Berardinelli Contact is that rare big-budget motion picture that places ideas, characters, and plot above everything else.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Kenneth Turan Contact is superior popular filmmaking, both polished and effective. But despite its success and its serious intentions, it's finally a movie where the storytelling makes more of an impact than the story.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert Sagan's novel Contact provides the inspiration for Robert Zemeckis' new film, which tells the smartest and most absorbing story about extraterrestrial intelligence since "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum If you sign on, disarmed of irony, for her trip -- I did -- you'll be rewarded with a rare thing that may in itself prove the existence of a Higher Power: a Hollywood entertainment that makes you consider deep thoughts.
Empire - 8/10 by Neil Jeffries Contact delivers on more than a pure visual level, reiterating the idea that greatest progress is made taking "small steps" towards enlightenment.
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by David Sterritt Its discussions don't go very deep, and moviegoers with strong religious values may wonder why it comes down for humanism over spirituality.
Austin Chronicle - 7/10 by Russell Smith Little effort is made to churn up romantic chemistry between Foster and McConaughey. For better or worse, director Robert Zemeckis sticks to Sagan's original vision for these characters, in which they're basically totems embodying both sides of a philosophical dialectic.
Chicago Reader - 7/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum Contact is so burdened with social, political, and religious issues that they infect and ultimately overwhelm much of the philosophical content.
Variety - 7/10 by Todd McCarthy Beautifully crafted and legitimately involving once it locks onto a dramatic track, film benefits from remaining mysterious about how far it intends to go in pursuing its themes, but also suffers from long-windedness and preachy final-reel explicitness as to its message.
Slate - 7/10 by Sarah Kerr When Contact finally comes alive, it leaves you frightened and thrilled and emotionally overwrought, as only a child can be. The rest is pandering. - 7/10 by Robin Dougherty Faithful to Sagan's brand of popularized science, the film never reaches beyond Hollywood spectacle and sentimentality.
The New York Times - 7/10 by Stephen Holden The movie, adapted from a novel by Carl Sagan, presents one long chain of teasingly open-ended questions about reason versus faith and technology versus religion, and ends up tentatively embracing mysticism over rationality.
