Though Williams gives one of his better performances in recent years -- finding the right combination of humor and restraint for this role -- none of the human characters are fleshed out in any way.
50
The sad fact is Williams is at his best while trapped in Andrew's original sleek form. His performance is subtle, his reactions restrained. The more Robin is exposed, the more ham is served.
50
Reinforcing the chasm between movie magic and wishful thinking.
50
Has heart, but lacks bite.
50
The once-funny Robin Williams is still stuck in his excruciating touchy-feely mode.
