Critic Reviews of "Foreign Correspondent"Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderMarch 27, 2009
This film contains one of Hitchcock's most famous set pieces -- an assassination in the rain -- but otherwise remains a second-rate effort, as immensely enjoyable as it is.Variety Staff VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Story is essentially the old cops-and-robbers. But it has been set in a background of international political intrigue of the largest order.Bosley Crowther New York TimesJanuary 28, 2006
Into it Director Alfred Hitchcock, whose unmistakable stamp the picture bears, has packed about as much romantic action, melodramatic hullabaloo, comical diversion and illusion of momentous consequence as the liveliest imagination could conceive.Geoff Andrew Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Hitchcock's espionage thriller is a thoroughly enjoyable affair, complete with some of his most memorable set pieces.Michael E. Grost Classic Film and TelevisionAugust 22, 2014
Creative Hitchcock thriller mixes fun, spectacular set pieces and political depth.Matt BrunsonApril 18, 2014
While Albert Bassermann earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for a somewhat hammy turn, the best performance comes from George Sanders, atypically cast as a fearless and resourceful hero rather than the cads and scoundrels he generally played.Keith Phipps The DissolveFebruary 20, 2014
It's such an entertaining film that it's almost possible to forget its didactic agenda, which is certainly part of the point.James Kendrick Q Network Film DeskFebruary 20, 2014
It doesn't always proceed as smoothly as some of Hitchcock's best films, but it is never anything less than grandly entertaining.Peter Canavese Groucho ReviewsFebruary 18, 2014
A fitfully crackerjack picture with astonishing mise-en-scène...some memorable set pieces to take advantage of same, and flashes of Hitchockian wit... [Criterion Blu-ray/DVD]Wesley Lovell Cinema SightAugust 16, 2011
A showcase of early Hitchcock suspense.Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 20, 2008
Due to the rapidly changing political context, more writers worked on the script than on any Hitchcock thriller, but end result is satisfying (if not credible), and even Nazi Propaganda Minister Goebbels acknowledged the movie was a masterpiece.David Nusair Reel Film ReviewsFebruary 02, 2007
...a strangely uninvolving thriller...
