If John Duigan set out to make the most preposterous, over-the-top and sweeping epic he could cobble together, then he succeeded with a vengeance.

Great, gooey, hot-fudge sundae of a love story.

There's plenty of eye candy -- gorgeous scenery, gorgeous costumes, gorgeous people -- to keep the viewer from minding (too much) the Olympic leaps of faith required to invest in the film's plot.

This is never a great film. In scattered stretches, though, it's a very good one.

An ambitious, if uneven, tale of passionate lovers from 1933 to 1945.

It wants to be a hard-panting melodrama, with spies and sex and love and death, and there are times when a movie like this is exactly what you feel like indulging.

A brilliantly conceived and delivered extension of the obsessions that have driven one of our finest directors to create excellent cinema for years.

Visually ravishing and well-acted.

Flawed as it may be, Duigan's film is still a terrific showcase for Theron, whose magnetic performance should erase any lingering doubts that her Oscar win for Monster was a fluke.

Perplexing as the characters are, the story is involving and the ending as the Allies drive the Nazis out of Paris is thought-provoking.

It is considerably more interesting when it is exploring the seeming contradiction between Gilda's loyalty and her hedonistic tendencies.

Idealism struggles with hedonism in this drama that features a menage-a-trois during wartime.

Even as a potboiler, this melodrama is too silly and improbable to be enjoyed as trash

Tyrone Power would have more chemistry courting Deanna Durbin in a deep coma. Theron destroys all her Monster acting cred. Cruz squeaks like a hamster huffing helium.

Miscast leads and ersatz emotions leave the film's soundstagey period ambiance as its most comparable asset. A handsome misfire.

The film is emotionally distanced from its audience, too stoic and stuffy. You'd never guess a film with as much sex as this one could be so stodgy, but there you go.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

This would-be wartime epic romance is so intent on setting a dream-like atmosphere that it fails to develop either the situation or characters in a convincing fashion.
