Christopher Columbus: The Discovery

Critics Consensus

Ironically, for a biopic about a voyage many associate with people accepting that the world is round, Christopher Columbus: The Discovery falls completely flat.

Movie Info

Explorer Christopher Columbus (Georges Corraface) is determined to sail west from Europe to India. While his brother searches for funding for the expedition elsewhere, Columbus heads to Spain, where he is interrogated by Tomas de Torquemeda (Marlon Brando), the feared mastermind of the Spanish Inquisition. When Queen Isabella (Rachel Ward) agrees to finance his expedition as a way of spreading Christianity, Columbus embarks with a mutinous crew, destined for a surprising discovery.

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (27)

  • It's not politically correct. It's also not cinematically correct, humanly correct or historically correct.

  • Released in 1,492 theaters on Friday, Christopher Columbus: The Discovery should be gone from most of them faster than you can hoist the mainsails and shiver your timbers.

    May 3, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Cast in the title role is George Corraface, whose credits include Not Without My Daughter and Impromptu. Does he overact? Let's just say that I think I heard him frown.

    May 3, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The film benefits greatly from the use of three totally authentic ship replicas, but the real thing -- as presented in the PBS series about Columbus -- is still much more inspiring.

    May 3, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • George Corraface would look more comfortable in a Calvin Klein underwear ad than at the helm of a ship.

    May 3, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Christopher Columbus: The Discovery lacks even the misplaced energy of a camp folly. It's limp and exhausted -- a bloodless swashbuckler.
