Critic Reviews for All the Queen's Men
Not bad enough to qualify as a memorable dud, multinational production nonetheless misses mark on every level.
What we have here isn't a disaster, exactly, but a very handsomely produced let-down.
Not only does LeBlanc make one spectacularly ugly-looking broad, but he appears miserable throughout as he swaggers through his scenes.
Audience Reviews for All the Queen's Men
I am really surprised this got so many bad reviews. I found it quite delightful and engaging with excellent performances from Izzard, Krebitz (marry me, please), and Birkin. It is properly light hearted with great character interactions and some nice suspense.
A fairly unremarkable affair with an uneven tone that hops between serious and comic too often and takes a fairly predictable route to an ending that suddenly feels like something much better. Its a shame they didn't embrace the silliness, pepped up the flat dialogue and had some real fun with the implausibly crazy situation.
If you can get past the incredibly bad beginning, it's actually not too shabby. Well, ok, it is...but Eddie and Udo make it bearable.
