Critic Reviews of "The Current War"indieWireSeptember 12, 2017
A torpidly slow epic with a script that moves at the speed of light, the film is pockmarked with incidents that never cohere into a clear narrative.New York Magazine/VultureSeptember 11, 2017
Apart from those nutty camera angles and lenses, which throw you out of the action, The Current War is absorbing ...AV ClubSeptember 11, 2017
The prevailing mood of The Current War is indifference; there's no point listing the crimes against the past committed by Michael Mitnick's dramatically inept script ...VarietySeptember 10, 2017
What it can't do ... is generate even the slightest bit of interest in what happens to any of its characters.Hollywood ReporterSeptember 10, 2017
For all its aggressive energy, The Current War is an uninvolving bore, making it unlikely to measure up as the kind of Oscar-baity prestige entry the Weinstein Company obviously had in mind.We Live EntertainmentApril 30, 2018
With a better screenplay with more emotionally appealing characters, The Current War could've been a hit.SlashfilmDecember 29, 2017
The Current War may not break new ground, but it finds exciting ways to make the old seem new.National Newspaper Publishers AssociationSeptember 19, 2017

The Current War is boring, bad history.We Got This CoveredSeptember 14, 2017
Gomez-Rejon's The Current War is unfortunately neutralized by Mitnick's artless script.NOW TorontoSeptember 13, 2017
It's very expensive and very busy, and it's utterly forgettable.The Film StageSeptember 12, 2017
Despite investing so much time in unnecessary biopic exposition, the whole is an exciting and informative history lesson. We learn electricity was always bigger than two men.
