    There is no rage here or Michael Moore-like bluster. Instead, Deadline is a straightforward, compassionate look at a volatile subject.

    • 75 Jonathan Curiel
    An unabashed paean to Kerry's character at a time in the presidential election when Kerry's character is being questioned. It's also a riveting film.

    These aren't the marching band songs of your father's or mother's generation but a musical expression that is modern and exciting to watch.

    • 75 Jonathan Curiel
    The movie is an ideal blend of character study, deceptively simple plot twists, inspired acting, and travelogue.

    • 75 Jonathan Curiel
    Straddles the line between dark comedy and deep drama.
    • 61 Metascore
