Movie Reviews

  • this is Jodie Comer's show; the "Killing Eve" star is the glue that holds the whole thing together, and the screen is never more alive than when she is on it
    4 of 5 by Ryan Leston [Daily Telegraph (UK) ]
  • Ridley Scott delivers another dazzling visual feast, powered with a plethora of fine performances. It's just a shame that a film centred around a woman gives her so little time
    3 of 5 by Jo-Ann Titmarsh [HeyUGuys ]
  • by the time the film gets round to showing its hand as an episode of Medieval #MeToo, it has numbed us with so much flash and fustian that the heart of the story has almost been drowned
    2 of 5 by Jonathan Romney [The Guardian ]
  • appealing turns from Ben Affleck and Jodie Comer can't save Ridley Scott's bloated historical epic; the film feeds into the very power structure it sets out to debunk, a frustrating miss that threatens to cloud Comer's poignant performance
    by Rafaela Sales Ross [Little White Lies ]
  • an uneven Middle Ages #MeToo epic; a lengthy, two-and-a-half-hour film that feels lopsided and unwieldy
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • adapting Eric Jager's 2004 non-fiction book with screenwriters Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Nicole Holofcener, Ridley Scott spins a medieval yarn that is by turns gruesome, grotesque, gorgeous, and inconsistent
    by Asher Luberto [The Wrap ]
  • Adam Driver and Jodie Comer shine, but "The Last Duel" is diminished by an uneven script and skewed perspective
    Review rate : C+ by Roberto Ruggio [Awards Watch ]
  • "The Last Duel" rises against any skepticism with a nuanced, complex script, phenomenal performances that should be studied in acting class, and some of the best medieval fight scenes put to the screen
    Review rate : A- by Rafael Motamayor [Collider ]
  • "The Last Duel" reveals itself as something all too rare on the current Hollywood field of battle: an intelligent and genuinely daring big budget melee that is - above all else - the product of recognizable artistic collaboration.
    Review rate : B+ by Ben Croll [IndieWire ]
  • "The Last Duel" is an engrossing drama of ambition, romance, and political chicanery; despite a brief action interlude here or there, "The Last Duel" turns out to be a lavishly convoluted and, at times, rather interesting medieval soap opera
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
