The inability to capture moments of simple, uncomplicated emotion show up the hollowness and over-staged theatricality of Richard Attenborough's Gandhi with exasperating frequency.
March 5, 2007
Gandhi is less personal than Reds, but also less complacent than Chariots of Fire and less doddering than Lean's own orderly post-colonial apologia, A Passage to India.

Tthe film Gandhi is more stuffy than stately, more prestigious than prodigious. It never quite captures the essence of Gandhi, or the influence he exerted on other leaders, including Martin Luther King. It's a broad but shallow river of information.

December 17, 2006
Attenborough's work lacks even the undercurrent of personality that David Lean brought to his films: the film has no flavor but that of the standard Hollywood hagiography.
May 6, 2017
Grievously doting and squeamishly evasive.
January 29, 2008
It's safe to say that if you knew nothing about Gandhi before going in to the movie, you wouldn't know a whole lot more coming out.

They simply do not build movies like this any more, which is a pity.
June 24, 2006
Its faults rather pale beside the epic nature of its theme, and Kingsley's performance in the central role is outstanding.
February 11, 2013
Richard Attenborough's Gandhi is every bit as sumptuous as everyone had expected.
January 13, 2014
Above all, Kingsley's astonishing performance, capturing both Gandhi's divine light and his irresistible simplicity, inspires this ambitious film.
January 2, 2011
Brilliant biography will engage preteens and up.

The movie aims primarily to demonstrate how such a man could accomplish so much, but also how monumental his task was and how it ultimately claimed his life

June 27, 2001
Both script and camera serve only as a canvas upon which the masterful Ben Kingsley paints a touchingly lifelike picture of one of the greatest men in history.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
