Cate is a wondrous actress but she is scandalously ill served here, and not just by the facile nature of the dialogue... It's as if the director has a checklist of the characteristics he wishes her to display and she should just get on with it.

As an historical reenactment it suffers from a great deal of simplification in order to make complex events quickly and easily understandable, and as a drama it suffers from a great deal of build that never really pays on it's promise.

While the performances keep the film afloat, Kapur's over indulgent direction and his inadequate interpretation of history comes dangerously close to running it aground.

Every shot, every costume is decadent with color, and every single twitch of Blanchett's face is imbued with meaning as she negotiates her way through her warring roles of being a woman and being a queen.

But saddled with this dopey script, [Blanchett] is stuck pulling a series of poses and wearing one ornate gown after another.

Blanchett is again director Shekhar Kapur's greatest asset. His weakness is his tendency to fall back on silly, melodramatic contrivance better suited to popcorn fare than to a believable meditation on Elizabethan England.

Betrayal, war, love triangles and most importantly, Cate Blanchett proves to be able to capture strength, anger and sadness better...

This is an epic, to be sure, but it is also a melodrama, a soap opera of titanic scale and bluster.

A pedigreed romance, an excuse for Blanchett to bind herself in satin and channel Kate Hepburn.

Figurinos, direção de arte e fotografia são exuberantes, mas fica até difícil apreciar a performance de Cate Blanchett em meio a um roteiro tão estúpido e à direção "olhem-pra-mim-sou-Cecil-B.-DeMille!" de Shekhar Kapur.

A sequel, a costume fantasy, a romantic melodrama, a CGI war spectacular, a puzzling celebration of beauty over substance.

Menos interesante y más rutinaria que la primera Elizabeth (de 1998), esta segunda parte vale la pena más que nada por otra brillante composición de Cate Blanchett.

a muddle that subsumes [its] premise in a mighty attempt to be several things all at once, with an uneven delivery

... fearsome and passionate with its visual flair, but incredibly confused as to how it wants to address Elizabeth's life beyond what has already been realized.

"Elizabeth: The Golden Age" is a worthy sequel to "Elizabeth". Cate Blanchett delivers the same performance that earned her so much praise the first time around. The epic feel harkens back to Hollywood's Golden Age.

Blanchett and the film powerfully embody the range of Elizabeth's mind and the force of her intellect, along with the necessary balance between moral scruple and realpolitik.

The elaborate costumes and set decoration provide the only interest.
