    Absolute Power is a marginal film, but only sporadically good. Certain scenes are riveting, while others fall flat. Overall, the movie just hits the green.

    A film that is entertaining but not seriously absorbing.
  2. Glum and depersonalized, as if Eastwood couldn't muster the energy to guide us through this maze of improbable twists. [14 Feb 1997, p. 39]
  3. The content is eminently forgettable but the thing has definitely got style.
