The Iron Lady (2011)





1.5 out of 10 Missed Opportunity
Joe from Dublin, 03 Aug 2012
This film should have been brilliant. One of the most interesting life stories of our time and the best actress of our generation playing the role. How could it go so wrong? For one thing, the trick of jumping forward and backward in time has been used far too much in films. If it is done it must be done well and the trick is used very clumsily in this case. Add to that the confusion of Dennis talking to her after his death, being in scenes and then out of them, you don't know what year it is, who is dead or alive, or what the heck is going on. We had high hopes for this film but we must advise anyone reading this to avoid it.

2.5 out of 10 A Good Story Badly Told
Seamus from Monaghan, 26 Jul 2012
The story of Maggie Thatcher whether you like her or dislike her is one of the great stories of our time. Three times Prime Minister and yet universally detested. But for some reason the telling this compelling story is complicated by flashbacks and imagined conversations. All in all I spent most of the film wishing they would stop the messing and tell the story.

2.5 out of 10 Insightful
Kerry from Dublin, 03 Sep 2012
Interesting film & not half as political as I expected, gives you an insight into Thatchers' family life and 'humanises' her. It focused a little too much on the death of her husband and going back and forth with present and past but all in all I enjoyed it.

1.5 out of 10 Meryl Good - Film weak
Kieran from Sligo, 20 Mar 2014
Meryl Streep was excellent, otherwise this film slow, slow slow and then it skimmed over big events like the miners strike, CND, Northern Ireland. Could have a been a great film but barely scratched the surface. Wouldn't watch it again.
