There's a good movie in here somewhere but Zaillian's muddied storytelling and lack of focus hides it beyond recall.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

All the King's Men is a dull movie, mainly due to the fact that it is full of boring characters which are poorly written by writer/director Steven Zaillian and led by an underwhelming Jude Law.

Static and dreary, drained of juice and drenched in "respectable" lighting

"All the King's Men" is a grand scale embarrassment.

September 6, 2008
Mesmo que não o comparemos ao clássico de 49, este filme constrange pelo roteiro confuso, pela montagem artificial, pelas atuações decepcionantes e pela trilha excessiva, salvando-se apenas a bela fotografia.
| Original Score: 1/5
February 28, 2008
...a lush melodrama about the corruptibility of us all.

June 21, 2007
A "shouty" film... a bit too long, a bit heavy handed with the rhetoric.

April 29, 2007
Leaves out too much of the story to really work. Why are these people doing what they're doing? If I hadn't seen the 1949 version first, I would not have known.

As much an old-fashioned potboiler as it is a political morality tale.
December 30, 2006
It's beautifully shot, acted and designed, but there's little cohesion in the story. Maybe one day we'll see a better cut, but for now this is a sadly fumbled opportunity.

We have a series of beautiful threads weaved together in such haphazard fashion that, despite their potential, form a surprisingly ugly quilt.

What should have been an incisive study of the American political scene turns out a lumbering celluloid white elephant.
October 28, 2006
Penn is terrific and the production values are impressive, but All the King's Men gets lost in a poorly-structured, overly complicated plot that fails to engage.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 28, 2006
A Louisiana swamp of overacting and muddled plotlines sinks this cumbersome new version of Robert Penn Warren's political thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 26, 2006
The film isn't dreadful: it is just generally disappointing.
October 24, 2006
It's a typical politician's tale -- all talk and no action.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 14, 2006
Plays as a veritable autopsy of itself; to watch the movie is to watch it go wrong, to observe the tempting gleam of the film that might have been grow ever dimmer.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 13, 2006
What's worse -- a bad remake of a classic film, or just a bad literary adaptation with delusions of grandeur?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 8, 2006
This is a misfire of almost epic proportions, a lavishly produced but wholly hollow and nonsensical adaptation of a magnificently constructed novel.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 3, 2006
a powerful story in real life, but it just doesn't come across on film.
