Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
I can't imagine a better actress for this part than Australian-born Cate Blanchett. Blanchett, who can be regal ("Elizabeth") or slutty ("The Shipping News"), manages to catch the feel of Guerin.

By Roger Ebert
Cate Blanchett plays Guerin in a way that fascinated me for reasons the movie probably did not intend.

The movie portrays Guerin -- regarded by many as a hero -- as an irritating figure.

Glorifies its subject without quite knowing what to make of her. There's no question, though, about Ms. Blanchett in the title role. When she's on screen, the Fourth Estate flourishes.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
Veronica Guerin hardly trusts you to follow its story, opening with the murder, then a series of titles that explain what's to follow.
