Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Clunk, clunk, squish. That is the sound of the dead language in Roland Joffe's screenplay for "There Be Dragons" as it tramples his would-be epic of the Spanish Civil War into an indigestible pulp. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, May 6, 2011

Rotten: [A] florid, convoluted historical drama from writer-director Roland Joffe... – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, May 4, 2011

Rotten: The film's title, "There Be Dragons," is lifted from the way ancient maps warned of dangers to be found within uncharted territory. Joffe should have paid heed. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, May 5, 2011

Rotten: A jigsaw of intimate relationships and betrayals during wartime with more than a few pieces missing. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, May 2, 2011
