Critic Reviews for The Lion of Judah

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

It's not bad enough to be offensive, and the movie's act of affirmation - for all its self-absorption and high levels of pretrip ignorance - addresses an unimpeachable, moving subject and is undertaken with decency.

Although well intentioned, Lion is a rare thing, a Holocaust movie for people unschooled in the Holocaust: Likeliest auds will be turned off by the inarticulate participants on Zisman's Polish field trip.

Ultimately, The Lion of Judah is no more essential than the sum of its stock footage.
