Critic Reviews

  1. An exuberantly garish French movie.

    If only Brotherhood of the Wolf had the wit and grace to match its exceptional physical beauty.
  3. Has its moments. In fact, it has too many of them. At 2 hours and 20 minutes and with enough characters to take up a few floors at a big hotel, it feels about an act too long.
  4. Too ludicrous to be taken seriously, but not entertaining enough to rate as camp.
  5. This one's a turkey as big as the Eiffel Tower but it's bad in a particularly American way: It's wildly overdone, it throws in everything in an attempt to appeal to everyone, it's gargantuan and anti-logical, pointlessly ornate and pointlessly violent.

All in all it's a good movie, watch it on a rainy weekend. 94% Full Review »
