Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Frequently gorgeous, occasionally dull, always fascinating."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"Considering its cost and the vast effort that went into its making, such a film can be made only once in our time. The wonder, indeed, is that it was made at all."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"More than a dozen sequences defy description, and the vast battle scenes of Austerlitz and Borodino have no equal."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"There's literally not another film in the world like it."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Exhaustive, spectacular, often dazzling in its ambition and faithfulness to Tolstoy, the movie is still regarded as one of the wonders of epic cinema."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"Though it can be bombastic and mind-numbing, it's often lively and eye filling."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The definitive screen version of the novel."
‑ , Film4
"If it did cost the best part of a billion dollars, it was money well-spent."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"This is the barbaric yawp of the Soviet film industry circa 1968, an entertainment A-bomb test announcing to the world: 'Here is what we are capable of.'"
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"If you haven't seen it, you have an incredible treat in store."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Bondarchuk's film, which won a Best Foreign Film Oscar and was also serialized for British television, is certainly the definitive movie version of War and Peace, memorably impressive in its scope and ambition."
