Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The pace is so lethargic and the focus so diffuse that it's hard to get a fix on Charlotte beyond needless glamorization."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"While Blanchett's presence is surely felt in virtually every scene of the movie, her acting isn't. We don't connect with her at all."
‑ Steven Rosen, Denver Post
"One day Blanchett may get a part that melts her virginal ice queen formality, but this isn't the film"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Um filme emocionante até os minutos finais, quando se entrega lamentavelmente ao romance barato."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"You get your money's worth with Charlotte Gray: Its two hours seem like ten."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Mounts a romantic drama of the World War II era in mostly glossy, shallow terms."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"This is Blanchett's film. Her quiet, detailed work leaves you wanting more."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Mature material in this old-fashioned WWII movie."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"An adaptation that is often confused as to whether it's a love story set in wartime, or a war story with a love angle."
‑ Tom Grealis, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Leaps into an unconvincing situation and sees it with an unsure point of view"
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"If this is melodrama, it's melodrama of a superior rank, and I salute it."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"Not a great work but wields powerful weapons in its director and its star."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"Does a pretty good job of capturing some of the least romantic aspects of World War II."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"This one's kind of boring but pretty well made."
‑ Paul Salfen,
"Stubbornly generic."
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
