    But this Evita is not just a long, complex music video; it works and breathes like a real movie, with characters worthy of our affection and deepest suspicions.

    But Parker's visuals enliven the music, and Madonna and Banderas bring it passion. By the end of the film we feel like we've had our money's worth, and we're sure Evita has.

    So long as you like Andrew Lloyd Webber, you'll love this film. Madonna (in probably her best role to date) and Antonia Banderas give great performances, and there are some epic-scale scenes. Full Review »

    Bad transition from a play to a film, the play was good, the movie NOT.
