| Original Score: 2/4
Only die-hard romantics are likely not to come away disappointed.
[Rose's] screenplay is a ragbag, nothing like a tragedy in which the nemesis is Time. And his casting!
Bloodless and shallow adaptation.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
This sleek, Cliffs Notes version of a masterpiece is ... glossy and picture perfect on the surface and hollow at the core.
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.
A copy of the paperback book should cost about as much as a movie ticket, and will provide a more lasting and worthwhile investment.
