Michael Kohlhaas

Critics Consensus

Age of the Uprising is well-acted and skillfully composed; unfortunately, it crawls along too slowly to take advantage of its finer qualities.

Critic Reviews for Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (17)

  • The film is almost monotonously somber, though not in a bad way -- when it erupts into violence or settles briefly into moments of intimacy, the shift in tone can be surprising, even invigorating.

  • It can be quite powerful on the rare occasions when it allows raw emotion to make its way to the surface.

  • The severely beautiful film is painted in a dauntingly austere manner, as if lost in a war against itself, with confrontations underplayed and the rural landscapes making more of an impression than the detoured drama.

    May 29, 2014 | Full Review…
  • It's a strong story of lonely, even futile righteousness, which makes the plodding execution by director Arnaud des Palliers somewhat mystifying.

    May 29, 2014 | Full Review…
  • This muted approach robs the film of sorely needed momentum, but offers a rare opportunity for contemplation, a trade-off that only occasionally satisfies.

    May 27, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Arnaud des Pallires's pompous historical epic is a waste of good scenery.

    January 3, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
