Critic Reviews of "Free State Of Jones"The AtlanticJuly 11, 2016
A better film would have muddled the clean white-savior narrative with an actual exploration of what the racial politics of a mixed-race insurgency in the South might have been like.Time OutJune 29, 2016
It certainly looks and sounds right, and probably smells right too -- these gunky Mississippi battles and unwashed soldiers feel authentic. The problem, as with McConaughey's performance, is that you always do feel it.New YorkerJune 27, 2016
The director and screenwriter Gary Ross illuminates immense historical spans with the true story of one man's revolt during the Civil War.Tribune News ServiceJune 24, 2016
Ross bit off more than he can chew... the story lolls and wallows in wartime violence and the rebellion, then rushes through the horrors and trauma of Reconstruction.RogerEbert.comJune 24, 2016
As inherently astonishing and powerful as this little-known episode is, it has not been well-served by Ross' lumpy, ill-conceived script, which ends up wasting Matthew McConaughey's terrific lead performance and other strong acting contributions.Reel Talk OnlineMarch 21, 2017
While all the performances are solid, there's too much of a distance from the setting of the story to truly create an immersive experience between the audience and the film.Japan TimesFebruary 08, 2017
Free State of Jones is a worthy experience, both instructive and provocative -- a lot of what goes on here is starting to look too familiar for comfort.East Bay ExpressJanuary 01, 2017
McConaughey plays Newton Knight in one key, the key of righteous indignation, just what the story calls for.Columbus AliveDecember 31, 2016
It's a plodding and dry story that feels like something only a History Channel-addicted dad could love. And it's surprising how bad it is given the players.3AWDecember 26, 2016
A must for Civil War buffs, Free State of Jones is a ripping fictionalised drama about true events long hidden from history's spotlight.Antagony & EcstasyDecember 17, 2016
Absolutely nothing but a history lesson, presented in what feel like deliberately uncinematic terms.
