Critic Reviews for Cleopatra

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Before we get to the barge, you will want to know immediately whether Leonor Varela is the Queen of the Nile of your tape-head dreams. After luxuriating in the four-hour, $30 million mini-series, I'd say yes.

Audience Reviews for Cleopatra

The story of an exotic queen Cleopatra who won the hearts of both Julius Caesar and Marc Antony while reigning over beautiful Egypt. Timothy Dalton is terrific in his depiction of Julius Cesar while Billy Zane was charismatic as Mark Antony, torn between Rome and his obsession with Cleopatra. The settings were magnificent and I thought Leanor Varela captured the cunning seductiveness of Cleopatra, using her siren sexuality as a weapon to achieve her aims. The director obviously did not intend to make this an accurate history documentary so provided you disregard the historical viewpoint and view the movie as you would view any other romance-tear jerker, you would realize that it is well done and the actors and actresses did a superb job.

Leonar Varela`s acting like a school girl, not to mention the lack of Billy Zane s perfomance even the almighty Timothy Dalton couldnt save this mini seriers.
