Movie Reviews

  • the latest adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's gothic 1938 novel, is a dreamy homage to old-school Hollywood as well as a haunting, female-driven psychological thriller with deep mystery and satisfying twists
    3 of 4 by Brian Truitt [USA Today ]
  • in place of atmosphere and suspense, Ben Wheatley delivers blandly glossy melodrama
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • in director Ben Wheatley's lush, ponderous update... the screenplay, often reads like melodrama xeroxed and once removed -- its characters less living humans than archetypes to be sexed up, simplified, and sent off to their inevitable fates
    Review rate : B- by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • Ben Wheatley's Netflix-produced adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's "Rebecca" is a perfectly watchable romp that bounces along like a cheerful labrador
    3 of 5 by Wendy Ide [Observer ]
  • Ben Wheatley's Instagram-Ready Daphne du Maurier adaptation is shiny and dull
    Review rate : C+ by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • an overwrought and underwhelming psychological thriller; Lily James brings her usual sweet persona to the glossy, campy thriller
    2.5 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • an overdressed and underpowered romantic thriller; Ben Wheatley’s take on the Daphne du Maurier story has moments of spectacle and disquiet but hunky Armie Hammer is miscast as the troubled widower
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • although there are flashes of ingenuity, the period melodrama doesn't really feel like Ben Wheatley's wheelhouse and he seems hemmed in by the need to produce something faithful and commercially viable; the result is more watchable than wonderful
    3 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [The List Film (UK) ]
  • a pallid adaptation; This new Rebecca feels as if someone at Downton Abbey were having a bad day; The film sleepwalks through scenes meant to be tense
    2 of 5 by Caryn James [BBC ]
