Elizabeth Reviews

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

This historical drama is more concerned with showing tawdry sex, convoluted conspiracies and surprisingly violent killings than it is with telling the real story.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Shekhar Kapur is not a native of Great Britain but was raised in India, who admittedly knew little about Elizabeth when assigned this film.

Austin Chronicle

With style, passion, and intelligence, Elizabeth answers the question lurking silently amid mounting slag heaps of cheesy Princess Di memorabilia: What is this thing we have about royalty?

This is a fine piece of filmmaking that gives you history but still contains the right elements of sex, intrigue and suspense to keep it from being starched.

Kapur certainly throws a lot her way, but such is Blanchett's ability that she carries it all off.

Kapur draws the best from an outstanding cast and delivers both an atmospheric romance and a mature exploration of a big theme - the dark duplicity, betrayal, and grubby ambition that runs through Britain's bloodthirsty history.

Not only makes the traditionally stuffy and aloof British costume drama accessible, but entertaining and exciting as well.

I ended up liking it, even though I kept wishing it was over.

It's almost guaranteed to get a couple of Oscar nominations in the technical categories, and I think Blanchett deserves one, too.

A decent period suspense thriller and an inaccurate history lesson that could have been a masterpiece
