January 1, 2000
A Man for All Seasons is a handsome production. In other words, it is staid, stern, plodding, and precise, with about as much passion as your 11th-grade history textbook.

Waiting for More's breaking point provides the only thread of suspense.

Orson Welles alone relieves the boredom in a marvellous cameo as Cardinal Wolsey. If only they'd let him loose with the whole sorry history...

There's more than a little of the school pageant in the rhythm of the movie: Though it's all neater than our school drama coaches could make it, the figures group and say their assigned lines and move on.

Robert Bolt's boring historical drama functions best as an anthology of British acting styles, circa 1966.
February 19, 2013
Fred Zinnemann's historical drama is the kind of authentic, stately yawner that probably wouldn't even score a greenlight today.

The film works well in all departments, in fact -- design, photography, and music. One just wishes that its central conception had been more interesting.
February 18, 2015
Playwright Bolt, acting as his own scenarist, and director Fred Zinnemann have done a superb job of turning the play into a movie.

It is profoundly stirring in its dramatic conception, appealing as it does to the mind, heart, eye and ear.

It's Scofield's picture -- his is an inspired performance of virtue with a dash of vanity.

Zinnemann proved to be a filmmaker for all seasons.

It will not be for all tastes, but it is a fine film.
January 29, 2008
Producer-director Fred Zinnemann has blended all filmmaking elements into an excellent, handsome and stirring film version of A Man For All Seasons.
September 18, 2003
Bolt's writing is elegant, vivid, shot through with a mounting sense of irony, and both Scofield and Shaw clearly relish their roles.

February 9, 2008
Ainda que a abordagem de Zinnemann não consiga contornar a natureza essencialmente teatral do roteiro, as atuações (especialmente de Scofield, brilhante) e os diálogos absurdamente elegantes e bem construídos mantêm o filme sempre instigante.
| Original Score: 4/5
March 1, 2008
The dry film, more boring than it had a right to be, nevertheless was sincere and won an Oscar for Best Picture.
