Critic Reviews for HERO: Inspired by the Extraordinary Life & Times of Mr. Ulric Cross

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

A five-star subject gets a two-star review thanks to the fatal, formal drudgery that transforms this biographical documentary, despite some meaty ideas, into a lurching mass of archive snippets and am-dram reconstruction.

Solomon has crafted a worthy tribute to Ulric Cross and the founding fathers of Pan-Africanism.
