Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A conditional victory."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"Hopkins unwisely echoes his performance as Hannibal Lecter, but Lange rises to the occasion with a mesmerizingly in-your-face portrait of mother love gone haywire."
‑ , Houston Chronicle
"...audaciously steps outside of the tradition when it comes to film adaptations of the bard's works, but it also does so much more: notably, find distinct meaning in a play where all notions of importance lacked a central point."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"At once mesmerizing and jarring to the point that the audience can never get comfortable in the film."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"Tecnicamente brilhante, esta inventiva adaptação traz ótimas atuações - com exceção de Cumming, que parece estar ensaiando para um revival de Rocky Horror Picture Show."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A consistently absorbing entertainment that never becomes either campy or facetious, given its inescapable exaggerations."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Along with everything else, the acting styles here clash, though the dissonance serves the drama's bellicose theme."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"This may just be the most striking and unsettling translation of Shakespeare ever committed to film."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"It's amazing how enjoyable Shakespeare can be when Kenneth Branagh isn't involved."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"The real star of the show is Lange."
‑ Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
"A striking addition to the Shakespeare filmography."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Jessica Lange as Tamora, the captured Goth queen, seethes with sexuality and vengeance."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's hard to see it matching the success of other recent adaptations of the Bard."
‑ Keith H. Brown, Eye for Film
"A true pleasure and a surprise."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Eager to allow Shakespeare's words to shine through as clearly as possible, Taymor shoots the dialogue scenes fairly straight, with a minimum of background action."
‑ John Wrathall, Sight and Sound
