A strong screenplay coupled with an interesting cinematic structure and great images make this an engaging film with tension and texture

[It's] a film with a lot on its mind -- perhaps too much. ... As it is, philosophical dilemmas spread through the film like a plague until they finally claim its life.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

It's disappointing that The Reckoning devolves into a costumed murder mystery a la Jean-Jacques Annaud's 1986 film of Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose.

January 29, 2005

Although raising intriguing questions about the moral obligation dramatists have to throw a spotlight on taboo subjects, The Reckoning offers simplistic solutions.

Shadows on the Wall

Builds cleverly as the mystery deepens, then struggles to bring it all to a conclusion.

A well-done murder mystery.

Times [UK]

Wraps itself around Bettany's guilty secrets like a hot-water bottle, leaving more interesting characters in the moral cold

Sacramento News & Review

A multilayered snapshot of a decayed and disintegrating feudal system that richly develops themes and characters with an eerie modern resonance.

It is, despite the distractions, just a simple murder story, and the revelations in the end are hardly surprising or noteworthy.

Austin Chronicle

As an existential awakening into the light and triumph of rational thought over superstition, it's an engaging film, but as a murder mystery it plods along as though weighted down by the heavens and more.

... the premise and setting that are intriguing, but the obvious foreshadowing and labored attempt to slowly unravel the facts surrounding the plot are drawbacks.

Arizona Daily Star

All that black, combined with the mundanity of the second act, induces us to close our eyes.

May be as dreary and hopeless as the Middle Ages themselves.

Movie Habit

The interesting insights give way to undercover constables, and gut-spilling villains

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Collapses under the weight of unlikely melodrama and over-pretty visual flourishes...

| Original Score: 2.5/4

It's as if the filmmakers had a 14th-century audience in mind, one that had never seen a movie.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

It's nothing new to see a film that is better in concept than execution, or a film that wastes a talented cast. Sadly, The Reckoning does both.

Sean Means
Salt Lake Tribune

That rare period drama that enlivens a historical era rather than feeling mired in it.

Jack Garner
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

A fascinating, dark mystery that echoes aspects of The Name of the Rose and TV's Cadfael.

| Original Score: 8/10
