Bloodless and shallow adaptation.

A copy of the paperback book should cost about as much as a movie ticket, and will provide a more lasting and worthwhile investment.

You're better off reading the Cliff's Notes.

This sleek, Cliffs Notes version of a masterpiece is ... glossy and picture perfect on the surface and hollow at the core.

[Rose's] screenplay is a ragbag, nothing like a tragedy in which the nemesis is Time. And his casting!

Like its opening, Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina is half-successful.

This version manages to be both the most pretentious and anaemic yet.

Marceau and Bean have no chemistry, which is essential to a film like this.

When [Anna and Vronsky] first lay eyes on each other at the train station in St. Petersburg, the only steam between them comes from the engine.

Doesn't build strong relationships between the characters, relying instead on overheated words and performances to generate false intensity.

Provided you have a burning interest in pretty visuals and less regard for the whys and wherefores of human behavior, this latest adaptation of Tolstoy's classic is a pleasant watch.
