An elegant, melancholy movie about storytelling, science vs. religion, family, life, and death.
July 16, 2010
Director Jon Amiel has delivered on the promise of a good script, with a film that has a pleasing sense of forward motion, characters who suffer deeply, but are attractive because of it, morally, for the way they struggle through with love and belief.

Best described as Finding Neverland meets A Beautiful Mind, Creation meanders in dramatic urgency at times, but never loses a total connection with its audience.

The film indulges in one little bit of overkill towards the end, so unnecessary, but overall Creation is a very fine film indeed.

March 5, 2010
[A] gentle movie... about science as a human endeavor, as noble and contradictory and sometimes as wrenching a thing as making great art or journeying to unknown lands.
February 18, 2010
Jon Amiel, the film's director, tells his story with respect and some restraint, showing how sad and weakened Charles is and yet not ratcheting up his grief into unseemly melodrama.

While the film's flashbacks and -forwards are disorienting, the performances give the film propulsion and poignancy.

It's smart, heartfelt, handsome and just mutated enough to sustain interest in a specialized subject.

... an intelligent approach as far as it goes, though it's hard not to wish that the film had been a little bolder in examining the touchy issues created by Darwin's work.

If you're hungering for those old Ken-Russell, over-the-top biopics on the likes of Tchaikovsky (The Music Lovers) or Mahler, the ones where everyone, including the audiences, could benefit from a prescription for Paxil, hunger no longer.
January 29, 2010
It's fascinating to consider what a heavy burden Darwin must have carried as he prepared to tell the world that it wasn't, in fact, created in seven days.
January 25, 2010
A film that keeps us from taking the theory of evolution for granted. Darwin paid for those words.
