  • "Story of the fierce fights for power among network officials. Howard Beale is a top TV anchorman, who announces one day that he will blow his brains out in prime time, for the sake of the ratings. He goes from a dispassionate newscaster to a national folk hero with his famous battle cry, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" Diana Christensen, the Vice President of Programming, Max Schumacher, the News Division President and Frank Hackett, the hatchet man for the corporation, all participate in glorifying Beale as their star and in his ultimate destruction."
  • "A network news commentator begins to say what he thinks about the world and becomes a new messiah to the people and an embarrassment to his sponsors. A hilarious yet corrosive probing of the cynical world of television."

  • "Alors qu'il vient d'apprendre son congédiement, l'animateur-vedette des émissions d'information d'un réseau de télévision américain, Howard Beale, fait une sortie virulente à l'écran. Cette colère a un tel retentissement populaire qu'on lui conserve son emploi et qu'on fait de lui un prophète des ondes. Beale continue à pérorer jusqu'à ce que les circonstances, et les cotes d'écoute, poussent ses patrons à décider de son assassinat. Une charge caricaturale des milieux de direction de la télévision."

  • "Un análisis sobre el poder de la televisión, que retrata un mundo competitivo donde el éxito y los récords de audiencia imponen su dictadura. Howard Beale (Finch), veterano presentador de un informativo, es despedido cuando baja el nivel de audiencia de su programa. En dos semanas tiene que abandonar la cadena, pero anuncia que antes de que llegue ese momento, se suicidará ante las cámaras. Este hecho sin precedentes provoca una gran expectación entre lo televidentes y los propios compañeros de Howard, que tratarán de convertir la destrucción de este hombre en un negocio muy rentable."
  • ""Howard Beale, présentateur du journal télévisé de la chaîne UBS, est licencié suite à une très sensible baisse de son audience. Désespéré, il donne rendez-vous à ses téléspectateurs pour leur annoncer son intention de se suicider en direct. Mais il se rétracte à la dernière minute, ce qui n'empêche pas le taux d'écoute de remonter en flèche..."
  • ""A searing portrait of television exploitation. When longtime news anchor Howard Beale is fired, he suffers a violent, on-air breakdown. But when his sagging ratings are boosted by his angry rantings, he's subsequently rehired and reinvented as the "mad prophet of the airwaves." Of course, when the "prophet" ceases to be profitable, something has to be done about Beale, prefeably on camera, before a live studio audience.""@en

  • "Howard è un commentatore televisivo con un larghissimo seguito. Il suo indice di gradimento però scende e i capi decidono di licenziarlo. Howard allora dichiara davanti alle telecamere che si ucciderà. Da quel momento ha un successo strepitoso (specie da quando, credendosi direttamente in contatto con Dio, diventa una sorta di profeta trascinatore). Quando il suo indice riprende a scendere, Howard viene ucciso nello studio da un terrorista nero (tutto è organizzato, naturalmente). (Farinotti)."@it
  • "Newscaster Howard Beale has a message for those who package reports of cute puppies, movie premieres and fender benders as hard news: "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore." Sidney Lumet directs Paddy Chayefsky's satire (an Academy Award-winning screenplay) about the things people do for love...and ratings."
