Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: By the time the credits rolled, my eyes were sore from all the rolling.
Fresh: Even the movie's most wretched characters glow in the Harlem lamplight.
Rotten: Takes Hughes' nativity story and shoves it into the far background of a sincere but tritely told modern drama about family, faith, and redemption.
Fresh: By the time the film reaches its biblically inspired dreamscape of a climax, "Black Nativity" qualifies as equal parts surreal and stirring.
