Critic Reviews of "The Program"RogerEbert.comMarch 18, 2016
The flashily photographed enterprise too often becomes a blur of sound bites and slick aesthetics akin to a Nike commercial.Newark Star-LedgerMarch 18, 2016
For a story about incredibly focused determination - and if nothing else, Lance Armstrong had that - the film remains strangely uninvolved.Los Angeles TimesMarch 18, 2016
"The Program" fails to add anything new, or penetrate the soul of so crafty a cheater.Globe and MailMarch 18, 2016
It never goes deep on what it was that produced the awfulness that is Lance Armstrong.New York TimesMarch 17, 2016
"The Program," much to its detriment, concentrates almost exclusively on the history of the doping effort . There is no mention of his childhood or adolescence or any attempt to analyze his character.Irish IndependentDecember 05, 2016
The Program is a drama, not a documentary, which allows it to flesh out the bones of this story into something approaching a minor Shakespearean tragedy.Cine VértigoAugust 23, 2016
Basically the same as The Armstrong Lie documentary but with less cycling scenes and the repulsive but appealing performance from Ben Foster.[Full review in Spanish]Cinema MovilAugust 15, 2016
It's a shame Frears didn't fully approach the character and its subjects as expected. [Full review in Spanish]Letras LibresAugust 08, 2016

A thrilling modern American tragedy about one of the greatest athletes of our day. [Full review in Spanish]Cine PremiereAugust 08, 2016
