Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: From its extravagant costumes to its pompous score, The Golden Age is packed with distractions. But the biggest of all is the story itself, which works so mightily to tarnish the queen at its core.
Rotten: Even the chance to see Cate Blanchett strut and fret upon the stage, shooting haughty glances left and right, isn't enough reason to tour this rambling Tudor mansion, full of overstuffed bedrooms and empty suits of armor.
Rotten: This is romantic fantasy, not history, and much of the time you fully expect Kapur, here making his third post-Bollywood feature, to turn his cast loose in song and dance.
Rotten: I can almost recommend this film as a great-looking, bombastic guilty pleasure. But the soundtrack is unbearable, the soap opera love triangle -- laughable.
