...the movie attempts to make a grand splash. Unhappily, the splash is more like a belly flop.
| Original Score: 4/10
The pic is so bad, you can hear the dogs barking.
| Original Score: C
Paul Newman's most despised movie (by himself especially) is pretty bad.
| Original Score: 1/5
Though it is lavish and sweeping in execution, The Silver Chalice, for all of its august and religious aspects, is not an imposing offering.
| Original Score: 2/5
Admittedly dull, overlong and kitschy, the film was dismissed as embarrassing debut for Paul Newman, yet a closer look shows the attributes that would make him a mega-star.
| Original Score: C+
Dreadful epic noteworthy mainly for being Newman's feature debut.
A tedious religious epic that wasted the talents of many.
| Original Score: 1/4
Like the Thomas B. Costain book, the picture is overdrawn and sometimes tedious, but producer-director Victor Saville still manages to instill interest in what's going on, and even hits a feeling of excitement occasionally.
