Here is a classic case of the goods not matching the hype which, much like the story CHANGELING deals with, is a travesty of justice. There is nothing wrong with Eastwood's direction, Angelina Jolie was terrific but certainly not Oscar worthy, and the great J. Michael Stracznski delivers a stunning script for all to work with. Problem is it comes off as made as a television production rather than a feature. This isn't bad but they way people went on about CHANGELING lead me to the opinion the average film viewer these days looks at anything with a bit of substance as a masterpiece and this is simply not the case. Well worth a view and I'm stunned nobody tackled this story sooner but look at this one as a slow burn and not a quick fix,
