Movie Reviews

  • this is a shallow but watchable movie
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • the unavoidable flickers of Alan Partridge often shine through, but that doesn't hinder Coogan from being an excellent, avuncular guide for this tour through the life of a man once dubbed The King of Soho
    4 of 5 by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy ]
  • the movie doesn't make any of this seem particularly attractive or even especially sexy
    3 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • Steve Coogan's performance is consistently amusing, but the poignant dimensions the director appears to be seeking don't quite come together
    by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • maybe if screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh had focused on a briefer period in Raymond's hyper-lucrative career instead of flipping through nearly three dozen years of highlights - and some low points - the story would have felt more pointed and urgent
    2 of 5 by Gary Goldstein [Los Angeles Times ]
  • and it is ultimately more compelling as a long, colorful look at Swinging London in the 1960s than as autobiographical drama
    2.5 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • an entertaining and ultimately powerfully emotional biopic with a strong script and terrific performances from a superb cast
    4 of 5 by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon ]
  • a solid, straightforward biopic about a fascinating individual and his destructive relationships, with strong performances and a healthy sense of naffness
    3 of 5 by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine ]
  • "The Look of Love" feels somewhat superficial
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
  • 3 of 5 Reviewed by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
