The critical consensus

Two men in their 80s power the month’s most pulse-pounding thriller. Who could have seen that coming?

****(*)Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online, 20/12/2017

Ridley Scott gives us a very entertaining parable about money and what it can’t buy.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 19/12/2017

This is a timely, sometimes blood-boiling morality tale, punctuated by the suspense of a traditional kidnap thriller.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 22/12/2017

This is a character drama, not a conventional crime movie.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 04/01/2018

Flashes of greatness, dampened by a hero complex.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 04/01/2018

All The Money In The World will convince you that money is more of a curse than a blessing and that 88-year-old Christopher Plummer deserves a third Oscar nomination.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 05/01/2018

Scott ratchets up the drama of the kidnapping as well (particularly as it gets bloodier and more desperate), yet it’s Plummer’s malevolent performance that dominates the film, turning it into a darkly entertaining movie about the corrupting nature of money and the true cost of wealth.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 05/01/2018

The final thirty minutes are very good.

***(*)(*)Will Gompertz, BBC, 06/01/2018

Ridley Scott’s story of the abduction of Jean Paul Getty III shows little sense of urgency.
