Critic Consensus: Radioactive's flawed script and counterproductive storytelling choices are offset by Rosamund Pike's central performance in a sincere tribute to a brilliant scientific mind.

Critic Reviews for Radioactive
At its core, Satrapi's film is gorgeously non-toxic. Wise viewers, having filtered out the naff stuff, will embrace it.
For all the flaws of the film, Pike's Curie is indelible, a genius haunted by unforeseen consequences.
Marie is played with dignity and composure by Rosamund Pike, although with slightly more froideur than was perhaps the case.
Satrapi collapses a century of innovation and destruction from the discovery of chemotherapy to Chernobyl into a flat timeline that Curie can see right through as though looking at an x-ray. In those moments of stylistic imagination, the film glows.
The problem is not so much Satrapi's theatrical approach to the subject, which veers wildly from the overwrought to the dramatically compelling, as it is Jack Thorne's abysmal script.
