Does this Earhart biopic soar or crash and burn? (Thanks. We'll be here all week!)
"...ranks with recent real-life portrayals of Ray Charles by Jamie Foxx and Truman Capote by Philip Seymour Hoffman and could be similarly awards-bound."
— Ray Bennett, Hollywood Reporter
"...Amelia doesn't seem to have a clue about who Earhart really was."
— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"The fact that Amelia's plane and body were never found remains a lasting mystery. The only mystery about this waxwork of a movie is why it was ever made."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"If Amelia has any value (which is a dubious proposition), it's as an object lesson in the follies of the conventional biopic, which puts mindless recapitulation of historical data above analysis or insight."
— Sam Adams, Onion AV Club
"To say that Amelia never gets off the ground would be an understatement; it barely makes it out of the hangar."
