Movie Reviews

  • Unlike most toga movies, it doesn't rely on CGI spectacle, but real drama and ideas
    4 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • time would be better spent staring at the stars
    1.5 of 5 by Chris Cabin [ ]
  • Best when viewed as a sprawling period piece
    3 of 5 by Barbara Goslawski [Boxoffice Magazine ]
  • an innocuous epic, a pointless spectacle that champions free-thinking intellectuals over violent zealots while ineffectually appealing to the same uncontrollable emotions it condemns
    1.5 of 4 by Simon Abrams [Slant Magazine ]
  • Ambitious in scope, this film feels over-serious and oddly cold
    2.5 of 5 by Rich Cline [Shadows on the Wall ]
  • Always intelligent and thought-provoking, it's a welcome return from Amenabar
    3 of 5 by Phil de Semlyen [Empire Magazine ]
  • Agora may be flawed as a narrative feature, but it is a first-class conversation starter
    by Ethan Alter [Film Journal International ]
  • Agora is a laudable attempt to grapple with far-reaching material outside the scope of most mainstream cinema, but suffers as a consequence of trying to do too much, and fails to completely fulfil the promise of its rich source material
    4 of 5 by Catherine Bray [Film4 ]
  • Agora is a big, broad, stridently atheistic sword-and-sandals entertainment that recounts a tragic turning point in world history
    by Eric Hynes [Village Voice ]
  • Agora has an overbearing score which doesn't help and never really gets to grips with its heroine
    3 of 5 by Derek Malcolm [This is London ]
  • a movie to admire without ever particularly liking
    3 of 5 by David Edwards [Daily Mirror ]
  • a hypnotically crafted, boldly envisioned excursion into the eerily familiar distant past
    3 of 5 by Prairie Miller [NewsBlaze ]
  • "Agora" is film that fails at every step to be believable
    Review rate : C by Cole Smithey [ ]
