Apted's unexpected crowd-pleaser is inspirational, but also surprisingly entertaining.

It's neither amazing nor graceful.
September 22, 2007
A decent cast under Michael Apted's direction does its best, but it's dull, naive and dramatically inert.

A good -- and important -- story, not always well told.

It is to be hoped that Amazing Grace is not the only, or the last, cinematic celebration of 200th anniversary of abolition, for there are more stories to tell, more imaginatively.

So much to admire and so little to amaze.

Alas, the subject matter is far more interesting than the execution... It's a film bogged down with staid dialogue that reeks of horse manure.

In a year that offers the occasion for a deeper and richer look at British slavery and abolition, it is a pity that artists of the caliber of Michael Apted and Steven Knight lent their talents to a tamely traditional and misleading film.

Earnest drama about fervent English abolitionist.

Amazing Grace proves to be an invaluable history lesson, but a rather boring film.

I'm not sure what was a bigger problem for me, though--that the story jumped around so much, or that the tone did, too.

Earnest drama about fervent English abolitionist.

There's a lot of good intentions behind Amazing Grace, but the movie's a bore, swirling into the minutia of antiquated British law.

Who'd have thought that the most compelling and thoughtful film to be presented during Black History Month would be a formal British import set in 18th century England with men running around in wigs?

The whole things ends up being like a rather benign history lesson taught be a well-intentioned if rather humdrum professor, and sad to say by the time it was over I felt like the film had just entered one ear only to rush right outside the other.

Amazing Grace is something akin to a cinematic miracle. It takes three stories that few people would be initially intrigued by...and meshes them into a seamless exploration of human duty and the suffrage of the spirit
