Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
A fairly dull thriller about a hugely influential Internet phenomenon.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 10.17.2013
The movie can't quite decide what it thinks of [Assange] - or even if it should decide at all.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 10.17.2013
"The Fifth Estate" tries to be a cross between "The Social Network" and "Zero Dark Thirty." Only it's more like "The Sociopath Network" meets "Zero Dumb Thirty."Kyle Smith, New York Post, 10.18.2013
The material covered in the production's 128 minutes is not only inherently non-cinematic but not remotely "thrilling," at least in the conventional sense.James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 10.21.2013
