It does last virtually three hours, and along the way does have stretches of tedium, but LeRoy invests most of it with pace, true spectacle, and not a little imagination.

Enough large-scale spectacle scenes to outweigh the inevitable religiose sludge that creeps in between them.

For sheer size, opulence and technical razzle-dazzle, Quo Vadis is the year's most impressive cinematic sight-seeing spree.

Quo Vadis is a super-spectacle in all its meaning.
November 7, 2008
It's heavy-handed, to be sure, but it's fun to watch, thanks to its pageantry and color.

By today's standards, Mervyn LeRoy's film is a kitschy spectacle, but in 1951, it was immensely popular and MGM spent its biggest budget to date for a star-driven production that shot for a whole year at Rome's Cinnecitta Studios.

Taylor is as wooden as usual, but the gaudy spectacle is worth the rental price.

the main reason to watch three hours of Quo Vadis remains Peter Ustinov's striking contribution to Nero lore

MGM's opulent version of ancient Rome circa 1951, with Peter Ustinov at his most whimsical doing honors as the mad Nero.
March 23, 2011
It was made, we suspect, for those who like grandeur and noise -- and no punctuation. It will probably be a vast success.

Peter Ustinov's delightful over-the-top prissy performance was fun to watch.
