Movie Reviews

  • the vital spark that would have made the drama truly compelling on the screen is missing
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the unexpectedly good film version of "Water for Elephants" elevates pure corn to a completely satisfying realm of romantic melodrama
    5 of 5 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • the movie strips away both the grand weirdness of the circus and the dire desolation of the depression
    2 of 4 by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • that movie left you feeling as if you'd enjoyed at least one roll in the sawdust
    by Stephen Holden [NY Times ]
  • steamy and sexy with a smack of sadism
    3 of 4 by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • it's not a total washout, and its unromantic view of circus life, especially back then, is probably close to the mark
    2 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • it's a tastefully managed, passionless melodrama, full of brooding looks and reasonably sweet moments
    Review rate : C by Tasha Robinson [AV Club ]
  • is so painfully mediocre
    by Mary Elizabeth Williams [Salon.com ]
  • is mildly entertaining, though the best performances come not from the stars, but the supporting players
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • is endlessly watchable, thanks mainly to Waltz
    by Mick LaSalle [San Fransisco Chronicle ]
  • if the circus is a hierarchical pyramid, August is at the very top
    by Kenneth Turan [LA Times ]
  • buildups like that are hard to justify, and Water for Elephants fails to do so, but only on an emotional level
    2 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • add romantic chemistry to the list of things that fall flat in the film, alongside dialogue and acting
    2 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
