Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    Without offering any hard and fast solutions to the essential mystery, this is a thought provoking drama about the nature of belief and devotion that never feels exclusionary.
  2. 50
    This spiritual thriller is too wooden to be taken as seriously as was clearly intended.
  3. 50
    The first half of The Third Miracle is very good...but the second half of the film, alas, turns into deep TV-mode.
  4. 50
    The first half has a nifty B-movie feel--it's a canny little movie with a big, big theme.
  5. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    Takes on provocative and stimulating subject matter, but can't bring it into satisfying dramatic focus, stranding three strong actors who are superior to their material.
  6. 44
    Few other 1999 films are as filthy with tantalizing elements as Agnieszka Holland's The Third Miracle, and of those that come close, none other is as pointless, confused, or unsatisfying.
  7. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    A very competent film, but it barely pulls you in.
