Trespass

Unfortunately the rather ludicrous camp characteristics of the story, such as Uma Thurman rolling around on Egyptian cotton sheets shouting "Look at the grain exports to Algiers!" are never fully recognised...

"Bel Ami" ends up being a film that feels cold and distant because of the stale lead and a story that makes no room for the affection between any of the couples.

This is the perfect film to cure someone of an obsession with "RPatz".

Shared Darkness

A gassy, self-satisfied adaptation of the 1885 novel of the same name, threadbare Parisian period piece Bel Ami belies the erroneous notion that costume dramas automatically have a higher IQ than their contemporary dramatic brethren.

Pattinson fails to step up and command this film with his performance, and never settles on anything definitive for his character.

Movie Talk

As a caddish young man who seduces his way up the social ladder in late-19th-century Paris, Robert Pattinson looks much more the part than a too-old-for-the-role George Sanders in Hollywood's watered-down 1947 version, The Private Affairs of Bel Ami.

Dark Horizons

The film is far too concerned with its 'costume' and not nearly enough with its 'drama'.

Visually, the film is ornate and very attractive while the story, based on the 1885 novel by Guy de Maupassant, is essentially a pulpy morality tale about the perils of taking short cuts through life. A very satisfying, rough-edged period drama.

Pattinson doesn't work as the manipulative cad that this story demands.

"Bel Ami" is a handsome production, yet riddled with weaknesses.

The supposedly cunning protagonist registers as a cipher, and the directors' tendency to shoot dialogue scenes in close-up blunts any understanding of the social milieu he's trying to conquer.

All four of the main actors are worth seeing, but don't expect the movie to amount to much.

Pattinson just stands there as if he's thinking, 'I'm sorry if this isn't enough for you, but I only have two faces I can make.'

The women are all elegant and intelligent, they know the ways of the world, and they know Georges' history. Why do they find him attractive? We don't, and that failure is the downfall of the film.

Pattinson's passion is bloodless, his rakish George Duroy a font of undelivered potential.

Good actors flit in and out of the movie - particularly Kristin Scott Thomas and Colm Meaney - but no one seems able to conquer the essential silliness of it all...

Robert Pattinson is a terrible actor...Put him at the center of an actual movie and he's revealed as an empty pretty boy, a black hole of talent.

Robert Pattinson fits right into this material - a blistering critique of a man who can't overcome his self-hatred.

Pattinson's weakness as an actor is all the more glaring when compared to his supporting players.
