Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Strikes a good balance between action and romance in this version of the medieval legend."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"It's so cheesy and corny."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"You watch this benumbed retelling of the ancient legend thinking, "This, too, shall pass.""
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"one of those movies you keep in that special shelf, to watch them when you're ready to kill yourself, just to make sure you made the right decision"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"The production is grimy and listless, without any color to be seen, literal or figurative -- not even those little red dots meant to deter piracy. But then, there's not much danger of that."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"[Tristan and Isolde] moves so sluggishly that someone must have been dosing the cast and crew with Nyquil."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"A serious, old-fashioned, history-heavy romance."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"No Wagner libretto and not much depth or soul."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A movie in which all necessities are captured in two hours of ambitious celluloid, except for one critical anchoring piece: a heart."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"A strong visual style and a violent streak only partially undone by the PG-13 rating."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVD Clinic
"Pretty and rather dull."
‑ Martin Hoyle, Time Out
"I dub thee tolerable."
‑ Peter L'Official, Village Voice
"Tristan & Isolde isn't the sort of film you'd go out of your way for, but you could certainly do a lot worse."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"Funciona principalmente graças à maneira eficaz com que retrata o amor do casal-título, que jamais deixa de soar convincente."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Fans of historical epics will find much to like in the costuming, battle sequences and cinematography, but the love story itself is underdeveloped."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
