This is a movie that looks great, is well-acted, and tells a story that you can't believe for a moment.

While Charlotte Gray is too well-made to be considered sub-par, it is not stimulating enough to be regarded as much better than mediocre.

Lacking any sort of urgency, suspense or passion, the film mystifies rather than thrills.

Blanchett and Crudup are on the verge of stardom, but they're toppled here by a familiar and tepid story.

Director Gillian Armstrong and writer Jeremy Brock adapt Sebastian Faulks' novel into an overdressed and under-motivated melodrama.

Have that bottom-scraping feeling of being the final story to be told about the great conflict.

Goes through the paces of being intense and passionate without actually inspiring any feelings.

The politics are confused and the atmosphere is a muddy mess, a haphazard mix of continental accents and inconsistent languages...

The movie works so diligently to convey a spirit of heroic uplift and fails so completely that it feels like a tragic misfire.

Armstrong turns Sebastian Faulks' pungent novel about World War II into a soporific.

Mostly a sparkless film: a would-be thinking-person's tearjerker whose cliché plot lines and ice-cold sentimentality sabotage its best intentions.

One wishes that the muddled script ... had received the same attention as the costumes and cinematography.
