After all the painstaking verisimilitude the movie neglects its characters. Evita the woman shrinks. It's the background we react to-especially the crowd, with its power to applaud or boo.

All in all, Evita is worth your time and money.

No matter how great all the constituent elements were, [it couldn't] survive the kind of stiff, wholly artificial and forced performance that Madonna gives.

A pretty much ideal big-screen adaptation of the material, which becomes convincingly cinematic. [Blu-ray]

Webber's music is hauntingly original and effective, while Rice's lyrics manage to convey the information that's missing without a standard narrative and scenic construction, while also incorporating a constant sense of interpretation.

At a time when songs showcased in movies were being shot as MTV music videos, leave it to director Alan Parker (The Commitments, Fame) to offer a full-blooded musical with epic elegance on its mind.

It's just a sluggish, contradictory mess, a drably "realistic" Latin-revolution music video driven by a soundtrack of mediocre '70s rock.

I doubt any director could have made a good movie from Andrew Lloyd Webber's baffling and shallow musical.

It is quite possible to hate Cats and deplore Sex and still enjoy this movie.

What makes "Evita" so powerful is its ability to convey complex emotions through its music.

Don't cry for me Argentina, no please cry for me if I have to watch this one again.

Alan Parker has a knack for musicals... even ones starring Madonna.
