A Mighty Heart: Angelina Jolie

Peter Mountain/Paramount Vantage

Review in a Hurry:  Michael Winterbottom's A Mighty Heart is torn between being a gritty police procedural and the dramatic portrayal of a widow's anguish. What we are left with is a haphazard fusion of both stories that smacks of Hollywood self-gratification. For a movie that aims to throw a spotlight on the human costs of international terrorism, it says surprisingly little and renders itself quickly forgettable.
