3.5 of 5

“..though the movie has little of the intellectual heft of "Michael Collins" or "The Crying Game," the filmmaker, always so good with damaged lives, brings more emotional depth than we normally get in vampire films..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..this handsome, femme-driven Irish-Brit co-production is likely to fall between mainstream and arthouse categories among the several territories in which it has sold..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
Review rate : C-

“..the best thing in the movie is Arterton's sultry, claw-baring turn, but mostly it's a rudderless riff on Let the Right One In..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : C+

“.."Byzantium" is cut together so cleanly it becomes dull. There's not one moment of levity in the whole picture..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
