Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Clooney's movie is a slow-witted, occasionally agreeable retread of numerous WWII band-of-brothers flicks its director no doubt watched on TV as a 1970s teenager. – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Feb 7, 2014

Rotten: We may have gained something in humor by not taking the saviors in the art-rescue story very seriously, but we've lost just about all of the romantic pleasures of heroism. – David Denby, New Yorker, Sep 22, 2014

Rotten: The movie does a good job of illustrating why protecting art from the Nazi scourge was important but it's far less effective fleshing out the personalities of the people who did the protecting. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Feb 9, 2014

Rotten: Think of them as Inglorious Art Historians. Only this PG-13 entertainment has little of the edge, however complicated, of Quentin Tarantino's 2009 Holocaust revenge flick. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Feb 7, 2014

very enjoyable movie

Hard to watch

This film had all the ingredients needed for a great viewing experience - cast, storyline, director… everything was there. Unfortunately, Clooney turned out a show slow-witted and emotionless film… so much so, that it became (for me) irritating to watch. I kept thinking to myself, `come on, come on, let’s get going. When is this show going to get off the ground? It’s hard for me to believe that such great actors would subject themselves to such a second-grade level of dialogue. I don’t think too many Oscar nominations will come around for Clooney on this one.

Monumental disaster

I really wanted to like this movie. I mean, it's a great story and an all star cast of very competent actors. However, it's all wasted here. Between the disjointed script and flat pacing, by the end, I couldn't care less about any of the characters and there was nothing interesting (beyond the historical significance) to give me reason to recommend. I won't tell you not to rent it, as my opinion is just that, But definitely lower your expectations on this snoozefest if you plan on dropping the $5 on it.
