Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Makes good use of historical footage to show how a B-list Hollywood actor made the unlikely ascension to commander-in-chief."
‑ Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News
"In the Face of War repeats the same points over and over in a manner that's ironically very much like Soviet propaganda."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"The Gipper was always more entertaining and more persuasive than any of the other talking heads on display here"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, Los Angeles CityBeat
"The film is bereft not only of style, but reasoned opinions and even, occasionally, verifiable facts."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Ronald Reagan's praises are sung in an operatic documentary that rises to new heights, slipping the surly bonds of hagiography."
‑ Ned Martel, New York Times
"Were the film's tone not so hysterical it might be provocative; as it is, insights and insults are inextricably intertwined."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This is the sort of film that will make its target audience, presumably religious, right-wing Christians, heartened and possibly misty-eyed. But it's likely to provoke hooting and hollering in less reverent circles."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Overreaching in many of its laudatory appraisals, the film is mostly GOP-boosting rhetoric in the guise of a dull History Channel special."
‑ David Blaylock, Village Voice
