Consensus: Naomi Watts tries hard in the title role, but Diana buries her efforts under a shoddy script and clumsy direction.

Diana might have been flawed and scheming and love-starved, but this film doesn't help explain that. Nor does it illuminate the common touch and humanitarian side that endeared her to a global audience.

It's ... a pity that her life is reduced to such a forgettable movie.

If you are going to make a film about the late Princess of Wales, you are obviously going to choose the guy who directed "Downfall," about the last days of Hitler, and the actress who played opposite King Kong.

Superficial and lacking in direction. The acting was totally unconvincing.

Diana, not making a peep upon its release nor since, is one of those movies that simply exists where neither its content nor the way it was put together, where… More
