Enduring Love

Critics Consensus

While it strains credibility and isn't ultimately as profound as it might first appear, Enduring Love is still an intriguing thriller fueled by strong performances from Rhys Ifans and Daniel Craig.

  • It's a genuinely intriguing thriller and a mystery with a most rewarding conclusion.

    December 17, 2004 | Rating: 5/5
  • A fatal lack of character development dooms Enduring Love as little more than a fleeting curiosity.

    December 10, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's heady stuff, though stretched too far for convenience.

  • Though Ifans has the splashier role, Craig, last seen in Michell's previous film, 2003's equally provocative The Mother, is outstanding as a man whose philosophy cannot be reconciled with his feelings.

    November 24, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • An intelligent and gripping dramatic thriller, Enduring Love is a real rarity: a film better than the book it's adapted from.

Audience Reviews for Enduring Love

  • Oct 11, 2012
    Nice little character study about the darker side of love.

    The opening sequence of this drama was breathtaking in its simple depiction of a tragic accident. And as the film progresses, it goes on from a simple drama into an intense psychological torment for Daniel Craig's character. The climax felt a little flat, and so was the ending, a weak way to kick off a film that started on a good note. Daniel Craig and Rhys Ifans were the highlight of the film, but the build-up of their characters' grotesque relationship was not enough.

    The operative word is Enduring. I had a nice sleep during this one.

    If you ever thought Daniel Craig was just some hobo action star, watch this one and see him chew up the screen. There are some really flipping great shots in this film. The brief ending moment, it does suck, be forewarned, turn off this film right as the black screen begins. Otherwise, it didn't deter me from enjoying this film that much. It's a nice flick that has enough moments to take your breath out of your lungs momentarily.
