The Monuments Men Reviews

Page 1 of 11

The picture is a study of how Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs applies during a time when the only priority perhaps should be on the physiological.

Windy City Times

A fidgety movie that because of its star wattage, great subject matter and shoehorned-in random jaunty moments sometimes entertains but never really satisfies.

By trying to follow closely the book on which it is based, no individual dramatic component of the film grabs the viewer. ... And then, there's no satisfying conclusion.

Sadly, this is a movie with all the right ingredients that have trouble coming together.

While The Monuments Men boasts one of the most impressive casts seen on screen for a long time, the film is ultimately a letdown due to its sluggish pace and uneventful plot.

Fascinating story deserved better than this movie

It is a little difficult to generate dramatic tension about an art-salvage project when there is a world war going on around it.

The film is so excited by the idea of itself that it never bothers to establish a rhythm.

2UE That Movie Show

The Monuments Men is a collection of beautiful, individual cinematic moments, instead of the defining tapestry of an incredible story.

The result is uneven and sluggish, with a collection of thinly sketched characters and trumped-up suspense.

It's... a movie where the star power of an elite ensemble cast has been dimmed for the greater good, an interesting-but-dull true story has been embellished for the lesser good

Flat and expressionless, like a punctured tyre that gets you to your destination yet denies you the pleasant diversion along the way.

The Standard

IT'S disappointing that such a great cast and a wonderful fact-based men-on-a-mission story falls short of its potential.

March 15, 2014

Directing his fifth film, George Clooney uses the intriguing, fact-based premise to mount a surprisingly light-hearted romp across the battlefield as a gang of art experts...head for the front in search of art. It's sort of like Ocean's Eleven Go to War.

George Clooney's worst film to date, this is a congenial and inert story about irritatingly casual Americans saving Western Civilisation from the Nazis.

Sydney Morning Herald

Clooney and Heslov fail to settle on a tone, or at least tie the contrasting moods together. There are daring feats and moments of tragic loss, bursts of sentiment and droll back and forth between Murray and Balaban's characters.

Clooney has too much reverence for his story, and as a result he does it about the biggest disservice possible: he makes it boring.

For a film so boastful about preserving history, it seems all too content to commercialise its own story.

While it's an interesting tale, the screenplay does feel like it has too many characters and too many subplots.

One day we'll discover George Clooney is actually a long-forgotten screen idol from Hollywood's golden age who became unstuck from time, and all of this will make total sense.
