Consensus: Excellent cinematography and Rachel Weisz's entrancing performance keep My Cousin Rachel alluring despite a central mystery that's rather easily unlocked.

Josephine Livingstone
The New Republic

It takes at least 15 minutes for Rachel Weisz to appear on screen, but when she does it is a quiet, contained event. Nonetheless, the effect of her face is a payoff akin to an explosion in an action movie.

Unfortunately, both the film and the chemistry generated between Weisz and Claflin feel about as smoldering and lustful as a tub of margarine.

It's a real tug of war between what does and doesn't work and, unfortunately, My Cousin Rachel doesn't win.

A gothic moodpiece masquerading as a thriller, My Cousin Rachel is a misdirected swoon of a movie-long on black-veiled romance and ravishing atmosphere and a little short, alas, on dividends.

The Straits Times (Singapore)

This is a rare work: a thriller set in the 19th century that is neither grimy and dark nor eroticised and psychological.

There's a sense of simmering rage beneath its fetching surfaces -- the ire of a woman who's been taught that acting in her own self-interest is a subversive act, but who senses freedom so close at hand.

Elena Nicolaou

So, though the film cranks through its dastardly plot with leering Hitchcockian suspense, the drama My Cousin Rachel is also a bleak comedy about people who make ridiculous mistakes at the altar of love.
