What to know

critics consensus

This radical retelling of Charles Dickens' classic parable struggles to justify its oppressive tone and edgy flourishes, although Guy Pearce is suitably haunting as the haunted Ebenezer Scrooge. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for A Christmas Carol

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (12)

  • It was bleak. It was joyless. It was all taken from a desolate colour palette. It was about as Christmassy as piles.

    December 30, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • [Steven] Knight's inventions, while florid, did create a psychological truth behind Scrooge's conduct, a reason for his transformation beyond the magic of Christmas.

    December 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It ought to be too hammy to hang together, and it would probably have worked as a one-off film rather than the full three-hour mini-series, but I found myself watching, mainly due to the central performances.

    December 23, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This was clearly aiming to be more than a predictable period drama. Hurrah for that, because what is the point in remaking something unless you're going to bring something different to the table?

    December 23, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It might have been successful had it included enough optimism to countervail all the misery. But Knight unwisely and a bit heartlessly chooses to forgo that kindness to sink us into the bleak of it all, and does so during the darkest days of the year.

    December 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This was a total cut above the crowd - nutty, muscular, textured and with Guy Pearce delivering an intense, complex performance as Scrooge.

    December 23, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
