At such moments of transcendent drama -- and there are enough to make it worthwhile -- The Comedians is easily forgiven its other sins.
| Original Score: 4/5
Underrated version of Graham Greene's novel with a strong cast.
Uninspired political drama.
| Original Score: C+
At 156 minutes, it seems interminable.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A plodding, low-key, and eventually tedious melodrama.
Far more interesting to deconstruct than to watch.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
A sadly inept adaptation of Graham Greene's novel.
| Original Score: 2/5
It is conventional and obvious, indeed, and is rendered no better or more beguiling by some rather superfluous additions of amorous scenes.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
The movie tries to be serious and politically significant, and succeeds only in being tedious and pompous.
