Consensus: Packed with period detail and perfectly cast, Hail, Caesar! finds the Coen brothers delivering an agreeably lightweight love letter to post-war Hollywood.

Their latest, Hail, Caesar!, is their giddiest comedy to date, but it's also hit-and-miss within itself.

Not one of the Coens' major works, but it's a very enjoyable lark, especially for fans of old Hollywood.

The Coens return to the comedy territory and even though they don't reach the heights of Raising Arizona or The Big Lebowski, the build a light, elegant and funny film. [Full review in Spanish]

This is fairly amusing if you can get past the Coens' erasure of the anticommunist witch hunts, which destroyed hundreds of lives.

The more 1950s movies a person has seen and the greater their love for Hollywood of 60+ years ago, the greater their appreciation will be of what Joel and Ethan have brought to the screen.

An unexpectedly sweet and utterly satisfying confection, a loving sendup of the Hollywood of yesteryear.

The film is often​ sharp and amusing, but it's a doodle in the Coen canon.

Using a film noir base to tell their story, the Coens let it all out to entertain the cinema audience from start to finish. [Full review in Spanish]

Haphazard and silly, Hail, Caesar! lacks purpose and wastes its talented cast with underdeveloped, uninteresting characters.

Coens abandoning their signature quirk for QT's self-indulgent homage mode. Worthless to see it anywhere besides a theatre as the weight of the metamodern… More
