Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
All give heartfelt, unflashy performances that help make Shattered Glass one of the season's most thoughtful offerings.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Presents Glass as a masterfully corrupt fabulist who convinced himself of the ultimate seductive lie, which is that there can't be anything wrong with telling people what they want to hear.

USA Today

By Mike Clark
You get the sense that there's probably more to the story than you get here. But the movie's moral will soon be indelible: You just can't fake it in the Internet age.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
A smart, suspenseful drama, starring Hayden Christensen, that honors its own factual roots as no movie about journalists has done since "All the President's Men."

An impressively compelling film.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
The film never digs deep enough into the pressures on Glass from his family, his peers and himself to achieve psychological depth. But as an inside look into the hothouse of journalism, it's dynamite.

Boston Globe

Shattered Glass, with its dumb title, is smart about good vs. evil. Incidentally, the good is Lane, who now works at The Washington Post and was a consultant on this picture.

Although the substance could have used more visual style, Ray tells an uncluttered story and draws strong performances from his actors.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Fails on a couple of levels. It never really gives you a sense of the psychology, the root causes behind Glass' elaborate frauds... And since we don't know the why, the how becomes considerably less interesting.

It irks the ink out of me to see Lane exalted as a hero for doing what any responsible editor would do, then being paid to consult on his own canonization.
