Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With one of the most dazzling screen chassis in years, Evita is definitely worth a look -- maybe even two. But don't look under the hood.
This movie is so spectacular. The songs in it are amazing and so is everyother element in it. Madonna from this movie proved that she is a great actress. Madonna's acting, singing, and dancing is so great in this movie. Madonna did win a golden globe for her acting in this movie. Evita is a great musical because it is historical and leaves a lasting impression. Unlike some musicals it is not cheesy and the songs are not annoying. Truly one of my favorite movies of all time.
This Movie Is Amazing!
OK, if you didn't like musicals before, dont start complaining about Evita cause guess what? It's a musical. A musical chronicling the life of Eve Peron (Madonna). The movie won the Golden Globe for Best Movie, AND it has Madonna, what more do you want?!
Quite literally has everything in it. Hands down this is madonnas best ever performance in a movie and as an actress. The songs seem to have been made for her voice and they fit her so well. Antonio is pretty good too. It is a long movie but it keeps you into it. Its humorous, dramatic (in the real good way) and is something people can connect to. Hope you enjoy!!!
