Critic Reviews for Broken Lines

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (4)

  • [Bettany's] tour de force performance lights up the screen more than anything else.

    September 30, 2011 | Rating: 3/5
  • There's a stonking cast - Paul Bettany as the waitress's disabled partner, Rita Tushingham as a knackered caff worker, Olivia Williams as the glossy fiancee - but they're saddled with dialogue sagging with thematic relevance or site-specific colour.

  • Broken Lines is all about Bettany, who gives a fantastic performance. But even he can't paper over the cracks.

    September 29, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Broken Lines is flawed but affecting, and despite its occasional slips into melodrama, Bettany consistently resets the tone, making the film worth seeing for his performance alone.

    December 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Broken Lines is a marvellous showcase for Bettany, a useful calling card for Rosa and Fredenburgh, and something for the rest of us to chalk up to experience.

    August 6, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Sincere but poorly scripted and badly acted by leads Dan Fredenburgh and Doraly Rosa.
