Critic Reviews for An Ordinary Man
Every time An Ordinary Man seems to be headed into a minefield of clichés, it takes an unexpected detour and the film's final such excursion comes like a gut-punch.April 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Nothing in An Ordinary Man rings true; not the location, nor the performances nor the story.April 13, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
Kingsley's domineering lead performance is worth the price of admission alone, although "An Ordinary Man" is actually a two-hander...April 13, 2018 | Full Review…
Kingsley delivers such a riveting performance that it becomes easy to overlook the film's less compelling aspects.
Kingsley is certainly committed to the arc of tough guy stripped bare, but his gifts aren't served well by an artificially studious attempt at applying Understanding 101 logic to a perpetrator of atrocities.
A head-scratcher that ends with a shoulder-shrug, "An Ordinary Man" feels like a scene-study exercise in which two actors invest full measures in a script that's only half finished.
Audience Reviews for An Ordinary Man
May 26, 2020Ben Kingsley stars in the indie political drama An Ordinary Man. The film follows a Serbian war criminal who's being sheltered by supporters as he takes advantage of a new maid to slip the security restrictions his benefactors have placed on him, endangering both of their lives. Kingsley gives a strong performance and has good chemistry with co-star Hera Hilmar; having a bit of a mentor/student relationship. And the script explores some interesting themes; namely one man's butcher is another man's hero, and freedom is relative. However, it plays a little coy with what The General did and whether he really was a criminal or just a man of war. An Ordinary Man addresses some complicated and thought-provoking issues, but it isn't quite sure where it's going and ends up kind of petering out.Dann M Super Reviewer
